Omg. We used to pay our insurance on the door this way too. My sister would talk the ears of the young guy. It was Britannica.

Thank you for the information one step forward to my career in the financial field to help me help others.

Josh Dawson 16/10/2021 - 8:26 PM

Pete, I’m currently a 20 year old going. Through a Politics and Economics degree with a lean into econometrics. I’d love to get into this field and was wondering to what extent this degree would help or hinder me and to what extent I would be employable if I took the Level 4 as a replacement for a Masters. Is this the kind of career you can enter as a first job, or would you recommend getting a few years in other office jobs before I take the leap.

Thank you for all the content you have given to us for free in videos like this.

Great video Pete! In your option, is it possible to become a financial advisor for someone who hasn’t completed high school? I left school before completing my A levels, but have been successful in a number of sales positions since then and possess great people/relationship building skills. Would you hire someone based on this?

Matthew Peoples 16/10/2021 - 8:26 PM

I was in my second year of university, when I watched this. It really helped me in deciding to pursue my passion of becoming a financial advisor over a boring job in cyber security. I managed to get a position in a financial planning firm despite any experience or relevant qualifications and purely just a passion for personal finance. I start next week! If I could give anyone any advice on getting a position, I would say don't bother just trying to apply for graduate positions. Take some initiative, call these companies up! It's how I managed to get my job. Emailing companies is also not going to get your personality across. Financial Advisory is all about people skills, so go prove to these companies you have them. If your absolutely getting no where, then consider spending the money on the certifications. You'll stand out.

Can you become a financial advisor in the UK by doing the CFP?

george hill 16/10/2021 - 8:26 PM

Thank you for sharing this information. This was very insightful. As a current Accounting and Finance student, do you have any advice on what the best steps after university would be in order to become an advisor/planner?

Aaron Stephenson 16/10/2021 - 8:26 PM

I have been an engineer for 7 years and after breaking my arm just before lockdown I had plenty of time to think. During my time at home I was frothing for some physical or mental learning! I saw an advert from online trading so I started learning a lot about finances through this, I decided I'd had enough of engineer so I have started my journey in Financial advice and started my CISI course. I cant wait for this journey.

Lemar rr 16/10/2021 - 8:26 PM

I’m in my final year of my bachelors in Accounting and finance. Would it be feasible for me to try and become a financial advisor, or should I have started much earlier

Interesting to see the lesser amount of Financial Advisers compared to Accountants and Solicitors in the UK. All three work well together as core Professional connections for clients on any stage of their Financial Journey.

This video was so helpful! I'm currently studying towards the diploma and have been documenting my journey so this is really encouraging!

Kynadi Edwards 16/10/2021 - 8:26 PM

Hello my name is Kynadi Edwards. I am currently 19 years old and I just recently graduated high school. I'm enrolling into online school for the personal convenience. I know that I will be deprived out of opportunities and alliances by not attending university. But this is the best I can do for myself right now. High school was a really tough experience for me. I was bullied and socially isolated. I was supposed to graduating last year. But because of my circumstances I was held back another year. I wanted to drop out. I felt worthless. At 18 I thought I would be a failure. But I now realize that I am more of that. I know I can be more of that. It is my duty to do so. As a young black woman who will soon be competing in a predominantly white male field, I know I will be held back just for the color of my skin. Not how intelligible I am, not because of work ethic. I know that I will have do deal with the racism, sexism, and misogyny in this field. But I have to I need to break the glass sealing. I don't want to become another statistic. I hope when I reach your age that there is more diversity. So I know this video will help me. Thank you.

Looking at this in 2020, It's very useful to me still! Thank you.

Simon Tan-TJX 16/10/2021 - 8:26 PM

GaryV! He is a wonderful person! Also, could you give some advice on what I can do now to learn in detail things about financial planner/advisor? Is the first step learning and trying to get a 'certificate in financial services'? Thank you very much for your incredible video!

Tédia Rosarion - Finance 16/10/2021 - 8:26 PM

It interest me so much I'm in Canada though any body has info on that ?

Jesse 16/10/2021 - 8:26 PM

Serious question, do you think that someone who is relatively unacademic (thick) could make it as an advisor? I'm eager to chase this CII diploma, but I need to know if I'm out of my depth as a someone who didn't do well at school. Brutal honesty would be appreciated.

Does a UK degree in business mean anything in terms of getting a foot hold in the industry or equating to the levels required?
