Getting to Know the Hierarchy of Financial Needs
Most clients will have more financial planning needs than they have the financial means to resolve. Prioritising is therefore a key adviser skill.

In England, Wales, and Northern Ireland there are two main ways in which property can be owned – freehold and leasehold. In this blog post, we look at the differences between the two and at a third type of ownership, known as commonhold. This topic could potentially be examined in the CII’s R01, CF1, CF6, or R07 assessments.
In early 2019, the Single Financial Guidance Body was formed. Later that year, it was rebranded as the Money and Pensions Service (MaPS) and launched to the wider community. An understanding of MaPS is particularly relevant to the CII’s R01, R04, R06, and CF1 examinations, so in this article, we take a quick look at the new service.
