I am an American living and working in England. I work in the financial industry and have the Securities Institute Diploma (SII Diploma). This is a well-regarded qualification in England and I have a good job as a "Relationship Manager" (basically a financial advisor) in a large and well known firm. I provide all round financial planning for clients. I would like to move back to the US someday but am wondering how my qualifications will be recognised, if at all. The SII Diploma claims to be internationally recognised but the one or two people in the industry in the US that I have asked claim to never have heard of it. My fear is that I will have to start over from the bottom once I move back, which is what I had to do when I moved here. Is there anyone who is familiar with the industry in both countries who could tell me if my qualifications are recognised and what I could do (if anything) to make myself more marketable if and when I move back? Thanks in advance for any help, I honestly don't know where I else I might go for advice on this matter.
