“I have found the discipline of following the requirements of BS 8577  and ISO 22222  to be extremely beneficial to the business and after 6 years of membership it has only got better and better.

I have recommended the accreditations to many other advisers but I have emphasised that it is not a certificate to be obtained and ‘stuck on the wall.’ It is a whole philosophy and a way of working on a day-to-day basis which, if taken fully on board, will only benefit the adviser, the company, and the client.”
