Leicester-based Rowley Turton (IFA) has gained corporate chartered status, joining the ranks of 450 other firms in the UK.
Managing director Alan Turton (pictured) said chartered status would impress clients as well as professional connections. ‘As [we now are] chartered financial planners, potential clients have independent verification of our professionalism, putting us on par with other established professions, such as solicitors and accountants we work closely with,’ he said.
Rowley Turton director Scott Gallacher obtained individual chartered status in December 2012.
He said: ‘I am delighted to obtain the chartered financial planner title, and I would like to thank my colleague and mentor Alan Turton for passing on his years of experience and helping me to achieve this.’
