The Society of Later Life Advisers (SOLLA) has announced it is in target to accelerate adviser membership numbers and expand its organisation
SOLLA said its membership numbers are now on target to reach 1000 during late 2015/early 2016.
The organisation is looking to extend its reach as a trusted consumer brand and support to the growing adviser numbers with specialist and bespoke training.
Founder Tish Hanifan said "a critical mass is now being achieved on a national basis, and the big legislative changes emerging in 2015 are undoubtedly having a key influence on SOLLA's growth".
A comprehensive Regional Branch structure is also being established, and the significance in achieving full Later Life Adviser accreditation status is reaching "ever increasing levels of acceptance", SOLLA said.
In order to help progress these changes SOLLA announced John Prout will join the Board of SOLLA Enterprises Ltd as a Non-Executive director. John, who retired recently after 10 years as Retail Customer Director at NS&I, had previously spent over 14 years in senior roles at Prudential PLC.
In addition, Hanifan confirmed the way in which partner organisations might be invited to support the SOLLA brand would be revealed later in 2014.
