Scottish Widows IFA Updates
Scottish Widows have launched an RDR microsite and produced an RDR course through their Scottish Widows Academy for UK Financial Advisers.
These educational services designed to support Financial Intermediaries in their transition to an RDR compliant business structure, and ensure that necessary qualifications are attained to conform with RDR directives.
The new support services are fully available through the new Scottish Widows RDR Website, hosted on their Adviser Extranet.
The firm will regularly update the website with:
Monthly articles written by guest writers as well as Robert Kerr the Scottish Widow's Head of Distribution Development and resident RDR expert. Advisers can also ask Robert any question they have on RDR.
Regular monthly commentaries on what's happening with the review.
Videos featuring roundtable events and industry events with the key experts, including members of Defaqto's Insight Team.
Access to all of the FSA's reports and our responses
In addition the firm has released a number of RDR discussion papers to assist Intermediaries in their understanding and awareness of the latest RDR directives and the Industry Interpretation of these directives.
A factual summary of RDR developments, and the current RDR landscape has been produced to bring advisers fully up to date on available discussion papers, directives and different Industry interpretations as at September 2010.
