Therefore, in a bid to ensure that advisers are fully informed of RDR requirements and equipped to tackle the major challenges and opportunities that lie ahead after 2012, Tenet have launched an ‘RDR-ready’ adviser support campaign.
It’s the latest phase of the company’s drive to increase awareness of what it has to offer to a wider market - not just Tenet clients - having rebranded and relaunched its proposition at the beginning of March.
Reinforcing Tenet’s new partnership approach, it includes a comprehensive 12-page guide to RDR, a dedicated internet microsite (www.tenetmakessense.co.uk), bespoke QCF4 training packages, important advice on switching to a fee-based service, a freephone helpline (0800 085 0825) and even the opportunity for advisers to receive a free personalised qualifications audit & individual action plan.
“We are entering a period of significant change which affects every part of the industry, yet there still remains a lot of uncertainty and misunderstanding of what is required and the options available,” Keith Richards, Tenet distribution & development director, commented.
“What we’ve done is produce a simple, straightforward, unbiased guide to help IFAs make an informed choice and plan more effectively for the post-RDR world.”
