Private financial community Octo Members Group has agreed to sponsor The Practical Protection Podcast (PPP).
PPP founder Kathryn Knowles is regularly joined by co-hosts Roy McLoughlin and Matt Rann; episodes explore protection insurance, how to access it, how it is underwritten and how it can be a crucial part to a person’s long-term financial security.
Octo is free to join and offers hundreds of hours of CPD to members, which will now include the content produced by the podcast.

The network welcomes advisers, fund managers, wealth managers and consultants, and boasts almost 3,000 members.
Lee Robertson, chief executive and founder of Octo Members Group, said: “As a community conceived for practitioners by practitioners and dedicated to sharing actionable and educational content with the ambition of collective learning this is a very natural way for us to support the debate within financial planning.”
Kathryn Knowles, managing director of Cura Financial Services, added: “I am absolutely delighted that Lee and his team feel that the podcast is worth their sponsorship.
“Gaining accreditation of the podcast is a huge pat on the back, that shows that the messages we are putting out to industry, charities and the public, are useful.
“This step also means that financial professionals who listen to the podcast can feel confident that they are adding worthwhile CPD to their records”
