Chartered Financial Planner

When it comes to your money, ensuring you receive advice from the best qualified adviser should be your minimum requirement 

Standards in the financial advice industry have been significantly raised in recent years. The CII’s ‘Chartered Financial Planner’ status recognises organisations that are committed to professionalism, ethical practice, knowledge, and excellence

John Markham is one of the few UK regulated advisers holding both Chartered and Certified Financial Planner qualifications.

John Markham is a Fellow of the Personal Financial Society (FPFS) which is the very highest designation awarded by the PFS. This achievement has only been obtained by a very small percentage of advisers operating in the UK. Of 30,000 members of the PFS, less than 2,900 hold this advanced level qualification.

Fellowship of the CII is universally regarded as the premier qualification. Achieving Fellowship of the CII gives financial services practitioners genuine differentiation. The CII is one of the main awarding bodies in the financial services industry and is well known around the world, for the quality and breadth of its exams and qualifications.

Fellowship of the CII confirms commitment to further self-improvement and is available only to those who demonstrate their ability. It is a major achievement in the financial industry and demonstrates the acquisition of skills and knowledge at the highest of levels.

John holds all three of the prestigious qualifications and titles which are highly sought after within Financial Services. Along with a Fellowship, he is a Chartered Financial Planner, Certified Financial Planner (CFP) and Chartered Wealth Manager.
