Financial Planning Practitioners’ Programme (FPPP)

Programme Overview

The Financial Planning Practitioners’ Programme (FPPP) was formulated specifically to address the licensing requirement for financial planners with the guidance and support of BDCB as well as TAP, to cover the minimum knowledge and skills expected of a competent financial planner. This programme also focuses on the area of Islamic wealth management and financial planning. Emphasis will be more on the Islamic aspects, as part of a comprehensive planning and management of wealth, and how these concepts can be translated into practical applications.

The workshop consists of two parts; theory and skills which will be followed by assessments to ensure the financial planners demonstrate the necessary knowledge and skills required to serve the public effectively.
