Chris Bolt, chair of the Institute’s Isle of Man branch told B365:“Our students put in many hours of study in order to pass their exams, something which is no mean feat given the level of knowledge that is required and the fact that most of our students study for their exams whilst holding down a job. The Isle of Man’s thriving financial services industry relies on highly qualified professionals such as Samantha, Dale, Lisa, William, Alison, Nicola, Jennifer and Levana to protect its reputation as a safe place to do business and we are delighted to be able to recognise their achievements in an appropriate manner. The fact that they have excelled in their studies to such an extent is something that they, their families, their employers, the Institute and the sponsors of our awards can all be proud of.”
