Proud to be Chartered Financial Planners

Kirk Newsholme – Clearly defined Independent Financial Advice
Accountants Leeds Qualification n. 1. An official record of achievement awarded on the successful completion of a course of training or passing of an examination. 2. An ability, quality or attribute, esp. one that fits a person to perform a particular job or task.

At Kirk Newsholme we believe that the term independent financial advisor needs to be redefined – and one of the most important criteria is that of professional qualification.

Chartered Financial Planners At present some financial advice practices are still working towards achieving the qualifications which we believe should define a professional advisor.We hold the prestigious Chartered Financial Planners designation by the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII). This is the industry’s gold standard for firms of financial planners. It confirms that we have satisfied rigorous qualification criteria by retaining highly-qualified staff who subscribe to the membership conditions of the CII.

It also involves a commitment to continuing professional development and adherence to an industry standard Code of Ethics. You can view the Code at

With over 100,000 members, the CII is the world’s largest professional body dedicated to the insurance, savings and financial services sector.

Your assurance that you are dealing with professionals

When you use a Chartered firm you are dealing with proven professionals. The CII is empowered by the Privy Council to award Chartered status, and the award is only made in deserving cases. And while Chartered titles are steeped in history, they remain the benchmark of professional excellence and integrity.
