1:15 pm – 2:00 pm (UK time)
    • Nick Turner APFS, President, Personal Finance Society and Sales & Agency Director, NFU Mutual
  • Financial Planning

In this IIL financial services lecture Nick Turner APFS talked about the key building blocks that make the Personal Finance Society (PFS) so vibrant.

The vision of the PFS is to be a professional body that has secured and justified public confidence and achieved parity of esteem with established professions.

Nick discussed the PFS's leadership of the work being done to obtaining those objectives, and looked at the challenges still facing the profession including: contingent charging; mass access to advice; low consumer engagement; charging disclosure and suitability; environmental complexity and value for money.

By the end of this lecture members would have gained an insight into:

  • The vision for the Personal Finance Society
  • The leadership the PFS is providing towards building public trust
  • Future challenges such as access, charging and value for money
