Diploma in Financial Planning vs Diploma in Regulated Financial Planning

According to CII I have different outstanding credits before I am diploma qualified - I have 10 credits left to achieve before I reach the Diploma in Financial Planning stage, however would need 50 more to achieve the Diploma in Regulated Financial Planning.

I have just booked R04 to finish off the Diploma and saw that the route that I am on , according to the CII, is suited to Paraplanners and support roles whereas when you look at the Diploma in Regulated Financial Planning it is suited for Paraplanners and Advisers.

Should I ever wish to move into the advice world please tell me that the Diploma in Financial Planning would be sufficient?!

  • Yep it's fine. I think the newer 'regulated' version was created just for new advisers to go through the R01-R06 route more simply. But they are exactly the same grade.
