The Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) qualification of the advanced financial planning certificate (AFPC) for G60 Pensions demonstrates a pension consultant has a comprehensive knowledge of pension issues. It will also classify an intermediary such as an independent financial adviser (IFA) as a pension transfer specialist.
This relates to transfer advice for deferred benefits from a defined benefits occupational pension scheme, such as final salary pension, to another pension arrangement.
This qualification was superseded by the AF3 qualification from the CII.
