Financial Advisers are experts in money management and will give advice to commercial enterprises, businesses, groups, societies or private individuals on investments, savings and generally how to get the most suitable products for their needs. They will research the marketplace to find the best deals available for their clients and may specialise in a particular product such as pensions, mortgages or investments.
A degree in finance, business management, accountancy or other relevant subject is preferable but entry without a degree is possible as most banks will have their own training schemes.
