An independent financial adviser has joined an exclusive group of about 2,000 people across the UK after achieving chartered status.
Mark Homer, managing director of Premier Financial Solutions Harrogate Ltd, has become a chartered financial planner after passing the required examinations of the Chartered Insurance Institute.
Chartered financial planners are widely recognised as having attained the highest and most prestigious level of professional achievement both in terms of examinations and relevant professional experience. Chartered status is the pinnacle for the financial planning professional.
Mark has managed Premier Financial Solutions, based in Mayfield Grove, for five years with his wife Karen and four other members of staff. Mark’s professional qualifications are allied to over 30 years’ experience in the financial services industry.
Mark said: “Professional qualifications are a key element in our business, ensuring that the advice we give is of the highest standard.
“We are an ambitious and principled organisation, ready to adapt to the ever-changing financial environment that we all face. It is testament to a place like Harrogate that clients don’t have to go to the big cities to get advice from highly qualified individuals.”
