Financial Advisor Near Me; Why Choose a CFP® Professional
“Most people think all financial planners are “certified”, but that is not true. Anyone can use the title ‘financial planner’. Only those who have fulfilled the certification requirements of the CFP Board can display the CFP® certification after their name. This certification represents a high level of competency, ethics and professionalism along with being held to a fiduciary standard of care when providing financial planning services. A certified financial planner is required to act in your best interest.”¹
"A certified financial planner is required to act in your best interest."
CFP® professionals must complete a comprehensive course of study at a college or university offering a financial planning curriculum approved by the CFP® Board. Once this course is completed, applicants must then complete and pass the CFP® Certification Exam which tests their abilities to apply financial planning knowledge to real-life situations. “The exam covers the financial planning process, tax planning, employee benefits and retirement planning, estate planning, investment management and insurance.” ¹ In addition to completing the courses and the exam; CFP® professionals are then held to a high level of standards monitored by the CFP® Board. If the professional is not able to maintain these standards, they can have their CFP certification revoked. All these steps were created to ensure that the client gets thorough and detailed financial planning and advice when dealing with a financial planner or advisor.
