Over the past few months, the team at Tylor Patterson have many reasons to celebrate following numerous staff achievements.

Sam Hawarden, Trainee Consultant, has successfully passed his final advanced diploma exam and has now achieved Chartered Financial Planner status.

In order to obtain the prestigious title, Sam was required to sit a series of exams and hold a minimum of five years relevant experience in the industry. The status is above the standard required by the Financial Conduct authority (FCA) for financial advisers to hold.

Sam said about his new title “I’m delighted with having achieved Chartered Status. As a trainee consultant having the “gold standard” ensures the highest quality of advice and service is delivered to my growing list of clients.

Speaking of Sam’s success, Gillian Bardin, managing director said “Chartered Status shows to our clients that they can be confident of the highest professional standards of service. Sam’s hard work is testament to his outstanding commitment to professionalism.”

James, client relationship manager, who is just commencing his Financial Services professional exams has passed the first stage completing the Regulation and Ethics part of the diploma, whilst Jenny, associate consultant, who is working towards Chartered status has passed the Financial Planning Process exam.

In addition to our exam success the team are also strengthened with recent promotions within the SIPP and SSAS pensions’ team.
