Why Join Financial Planners Elite?
The Financial Planners Elite directory is designed by financial advisers to enable the prospective clients to easily find the top financial advisers in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. We are unashamedly elitist. We are aware that there are some excellent financial advisers who do not hold higher level qualifications. However you may only join Financial Planners Elite if you are a Certified Financial Planner or a Chartered Financial Planner because we believe that you are simply the best financial advisers in the UK and we are on a mission to get that message across to consumers.
Arthur Childs on Using Qualifications to Attract Clients
Arthur Childs, director of Surrey-based Arch Financial Planning, says that
advisers need to market their qualifications to the public if they are to reap
their full benefit. Read full article on Citywire New Model Adviser.

- Practising as an IFA in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man;
- Active on the FSA register, authorised to give investment advice;

Benefits of Membership
Increased visibility on the internet:
At one time, and not so very long ago, the Yellow Pages directory was
the first place consumers would look for suppliers of goods and
services. Now people are much more likely to search the internet to
find a solution, including finding a financial adviser. Do you have a
website? The more links you have back to your own website, the higher
it is likely to rank in the search engines. If you don't have your own
website yet, your profile page on this, and other directories, will go
a long way to raising your visibility on the internet.
Raising your profile: You have done so well to achieve your
qualifications but do the public even understand just how special you
are? One of the aims of Financial Planners Elite is to shout about
your achievements on your behalf. In our directory you will not be just
another adviser. It will take time but we would expect the higher net
worth clients to seek us out when they need the very best financial
advice from a financial planner they can trust.
Display your photograph: Why is that important? Well people buy people first and foremast. It isn't a beauty parade but prospective clients like to get some idea of the type of person they will be doing business with.
Be seen as an expert: As a member of Financial
Planners Elite you will have the opportunity to submit posts to our
blog which will be read by members of the public. This will help you
to be recognised as the expert you undoubtedly are!
Get more of the 'right' clients: After all, that's really what it's all about, isn't it?
Don't just take our word for it - read what our members say.
