Vanguard rolls out hub for UK advisers

Vanguard 365 provides a range of educational content and events


Vanguard has launched Vanguard 365, a digital education and training hub targeted at UK based financial advisers.

The firm said the hub’s purpose is to help advisers serve their clients, grow their businesses and drive their professional development.

Vanguard 365 provides educational content and events to support professional development and allow advisers to accumulate CPD points.

It has the ‘five key pillars’ of practice management, client relationships, financial planning, investment knowledge and market commentary.

There is also access to a webinar series covering topics including coaching clients through economic cycles, investment strategy and the economic outlook.

The hub is part of what Vanguard said is ongoing investment in the services it provides UK financial advisers and intermediaries.

Robyn Laidlaw, head of European distribution, said: “Faced with increasingly complicated client needs, regulatory scrutiny, and a difficult market environment, advisers themselves are increasingly time poor.

“At the same time, the need for high quality advice is growing. The FCA have been explicit in their view that many consumers still struggle to make critical decisions about saving and investing, or accessing their pensions, without help.

“We want to be present, through Vanguard 365, not only as a helping hand for advisers in supporting their clients, but also to help explain and advocate for the value of advice itself.”

He added: “With this in mind, we will continue to invest in the services and support we offer. We are currently hiring in areas like portfolio consulting and analytics, and advisers can expect to hear more from us on these, and other developments, over the course of the year.”
