What is a CFP®
Most people think all financial planners are "certified," but this isn't true. Anyone can call himself a "financial planner." Only those who have fulfilled the certification and renewal requirements of CFP® Board can display the CFP® certification marks, which represent a high level of competency, ethics and professionalism. CFP® Board's Standards of Professional Conduct require CFP® professionals to look out for your interests above their own.
Why You Should Choose a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Practitioner
Choosing a financial planner may be one of the most important decisions you make for yourself and your loved ones. Financial planners can provide you and your family with guidance over your lifetime, or work with you to address specific concerns as needed. A planner can play a central role in helping you meet your life goals and achieve financial well-being. Consequently, take the time to select a financial planner who is competent and trustworthy, one on whom you can depend for professional advice and services. Your future depends on the choices you make.
