Here’s what our students had to say…

The 1-hour seminar was exceptional! You are incredibly talented in terms of the way you present, so engaging and clear. It was the most useful call out of all the providers I have had. Most of the other calls didn’t provide much more info/thoughts than the analysis already gave. But yours was engaging and helped focus on certain areas.

Cannot thank you enough for your help. I will be spreading the word about how amazing Redmill Advance is!

Poppy Ropner - Handelsbanken Wealth & Asset Management

I want to give a special thanks to Jon Dodson at Redmill Advance for all your support. Without our 1-to-1’s I think R04 would have been the end of the road, but thanks to Jon’s persistence and profound knowledge of the material, I was able to walk in and out of the examination centre confidently and with my head held high. Thanks again for your hard work. I couldn’t have done it without you.

Davio D’Ercole - Associate Partner Practice of St James Place Wealth Management

I passed the R04 exam! Thank you for all your help, not just with the content and questions but you gave me confidence that I could pass it which meant a lot.

Rhys Melville - Financial Advisor, Woodstock Wealth Management

I passed!!!! Somehow I managed to get 80%, I thought it would be a lot lower because it was a challenging exam! I didn’t do any additional studying other than the training you provided so thank you very much!

Tom Cochran - Aspect8

I have found Redmill the most useful out of all the analyses I have, I have been so impressed with it and so grateful. Your notes were so concise and flowed incredibly well – reading almost like I was sitting in front of you and we were discussing it.

Poppy Ropner - Handelsbanken Wealth & Asset Management

I was returning to the industry after a career break and was very nervous about changes to exam requirements. I've loved every minute of learning with Redmill Advance. Great value for money and a very positive experience
