discover fortunes

Discover Fortunes is a board game that we have developed to introduce students to the Financial Planning profession. It is aimed at helping them better understand the different elements of investments, pensions, savings and protection and their application to the differing needs of a range of specially developed characters and financial scenarios.

Following success with the CII's Discover Risk campaign, Discover Fortunes was developed to help raise awareness of careers in financial planning and help lay the foundations for the recruitment of the next generation of Chartered Financial Planners.

The event has been delivered more than 150 times at schools, colleges and universities across the UK. The results are impressive - more than 80% of students expressing an interest in working in the financial planning sector, having played the event.

Experienced Chartered Financial Planner members of the Personal Finance Society have been keen to get involved in demonstrating the game in their local school and answer questions from students about their profession. For more information and to get involved with Discover Fortunes in your area please contact Caspar Bartington, Relationship Manager - Education at The Chartered Insurance Institute.
