CFP® or Certified Financial Planner™ – Building Your Financial Future
Consulting with a CFP® or CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ isn’t always the steps taken when building or dreaming about your future. We all think about our finances, and ask ourselves do we have enough money to last throughout our life. A well thought out plan integrates all areas of personal finance, including planning for education, retirement, investment, taxes, insurance, your estate, your life experiences, and dreams.
You’ve got goals and dreams to pursue, and more time and money would help you realize them. The earlier in life you plan and develop a strategy to meet your goals and dreams, the better chance you have at accomplishing them. But do you have the time or expertise to manage your investments and financial affairs? Many professionals and families prefer to plan and live their lives and have a CFP® or Certified Financial Planner™ manage their financial affairs.
Why Use A CFP® – Certified Financial Planner™
There are many professionals that may call themselves “financial planners.” Only CFP® – Certified Financial Planners™ have completed extensive training and are held to the highest ethical and educational standards.
CFP® and CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ are certification marks owned by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. These certifications are only valid for individuals who complete the CFP Board’s initial and ongoing certification requirements.
