The FFM Academy

Designed to help develop and nurture talent in the right way for a successful career in wealth management.

Our Vision

We established the FFM Academy to give exceptional individuals who want to build a career in wealth management the opportunity to learn and develop.

The Academy is designed to lay the foundations for a successful career as either a Client Manager or Financial Adviser by coaching you through your CII Diploma exams and providing you with first-class training to develop your skillset.

Our vision is to provide you with the highest quality training so that you can build the confidence and knowledge to establish a rewarding career where you can help our clients live their lives to the fullest. And, of course, we want to achieve this all whilst enjoying the journey.

The Academy

At FFM we firmly believe that you learn by doing, however we also have a responsibility to protect our clients. Therefore, we believe we have developed a programme that encompasses the right mix of classroom-based learning and on the job training to help to get you where you need to be.

We also believe that change promotes growth and improvement, therefore we have worked hard to ensure that our programme is dynamic and flexible to give you an all-encompassing view of the business. We want to make sure that your experience involves a varied approach to learning whilst not being in a classroom setting 9 to 5.

Both roles that are available through the Academy have the purpose of providing holistic financial advice managing clients cash and borrowings, protecting against risk and building capital for a secure financial future. When you have completed your first six months in the Academy there will be two pathways available; taking on a role as a Client Manager or a role as a Financial Adviser.

What the academy route will look like:

You will study towards, and sit, five CII Diploma exams (R01 to R05) in the first six months. We will provide you with all of the relevant tools and materials for you to complete your exams, including specified revision time.

This training will be coupled with interactive sessions with our current staff to develop your skills and provide you with invaluable insight and experience to enable you to become the best you can be.

6 months

Transition out of the Academy where you will shadow the existing Client Managers and Financial Advisers and take on work of your own.

You will also sit your final CII Diploma exam during this time (R06).
