Proud to be awarded prestigious certifications

We are delighted to announce that Brunel and several of our team have been awarded two prestigious Standard certifications, demonstrating our commitment to best practice and extremely high levels of financial planning knowledge and service.

Brunel as a whole has been awarded the BS8577 British Standard for our ‘Framework for the provision of financial advice and planning services’. Individually, our advisers Damien, Steve and David have been awarded ISO 22222, the International Standard for personal financial planning.

The awards were made after a prolonged period of testing and reporting, carried out by an independent third party. The team were required to show and improve processes and knowledge and complete various assessments to prove our capabilities. Both awards are highly sought-after within the financial planning industry, with only a small number of firms currently holding the Standards.

Qualification for the Standards was undertaken as part of our continued commitment to ensure we are providing clients with the very best possible service in all areas. British Standards are now recognised internationally as a sign that a business has passed rigorous quality and practical checks and shown itself to be exceptionally well suited to the work that it completes. They are so popular that the company assessing Brunel told us that many international companies now want to hold British Standards, because of their association with high quality and performance!

We are delighted to be one of only a handful of firms to receive BS8577 and ISO 22222 and will continue to work to the frameworks and guidelines each Standard sets out for superior practice in financial planning.
