I was a sportsperson

Moving from being a professional sportsman or woman to a financial adviser is much more common than you’d think. Even if your previous qualifications aren’t related to finance, getting into the financial services industry is accessible and achievable.

Having gained experience in a sporting profession, it’s likely that you have a number of transferable attributes which can help in a career in financial advice, such as:

  • people skills
  • self-management skills
  • the ability to motivate yourself and others.

Quilter Financial Adviser School is open to anyone of any age, and we welcome people who have enjoyed a career in professional sports.
