What is a Certified Financial Planner Professional?
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 guidance over your lifetime. A planner can play a central role in helping you meet your life goals and achieve financial well-being. When selecting a financial planner, you need to feel confident that the person you choose to help you plan for your future is competent and ethical. Only those who have fulfilled the certification and renewal requirements of the CFP board can display the CFP marks.
In order to be certified by the CFP board, your financial planner must submit to the rigorous CFP Certification process that includes education, examination, experience and ethical requirements.
