A professional career in fiduciary practice
Do you believe in doing good while earning money? Do you place value on ethical behaviour? Are you caring and do you have a sense of duty?
If so, you should consider a professional career in fiduciary practice where a range of rewarding and interesting careers await – whether you are in wills, trusts, estate planning, estate administration, or tax advice.
How do I go about it?
The first step is to join FISA
- either as a full member if you have three years’ fiduciary experience
- or as a candidate member at 50% of the annual subscription if you have no fiduciary experience.
FISA is the only professional body solely representing fiduciary practitioners in South Africa. Members are typically graduates or practising professionals in trust companies and banks, or the financial planning, legal or accounting industries.
- The ultimate goal is to obtain the designation of Fiduciary Practitioner of SA® (FPSA®). You can apply to FISA for this designation if you have successfully completed the Advanced Diploma in Estate & Trust Administration offered by the University of Free State. Contact the School of Financial Planning Law.
- Continuing professional development (CPD) is important. FISA members are required to spend 60 hours in a two-year cycle on improving and maintaining their technical knowledge and competence. Five of these hours must related to training in ethical behaviour.
