ATF: The early roots of The Financial Training Company
Two bright ex-students of Caer Rhun, Gerry Thomas and Mervyn Frankel, set up a London office and formed Anderson, Thomas, Frankel (ATF) - the forerunner of the Financial Training Company, the core of what is now Kaplan in the UK. ATF soon developed into a major force in the tuition business and in the late 1960s, Caer Rhun/ATF expanded to other cities including Manchester, Leeds and Birmingham.
