CFP® & NAPFA = The Knowledge & Strength of 0.6%
As a CFP® practitioner, I listened with interest to the recent CFP Board webinar update. Here is a quick summary as provided by the board:
308,656 = number of practicing “financial advisors” in U.S.
55,610 = number of practicing CFP® professionals in U.S.
18% = percentage of practicing “financial advisors” who are also CFP® professionals
I was also interested in the information related to the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA). If you visit their website at www.napfa.org, you will find that NAPFA represents themselves to be an organization of “financial professionals who meet the highest membership standards for professional competency, client-focused financial planning, and Fee-Only compensation”.
1,840 = number of practicing CFP® professionals in U.S. who are also members of NAPFA
0.6% = percentage of practicing “financial advisers” in U.S. who are also CFP® professionals and members of NAPFA
If you would like to find out more about being served by this elite group, you can visit the NAPFA “Find an Adviser” page.
We take pride in our numerous CFP® qualifications, membership in NAPFA, and our overall vision of continual innovation and improvement. We strive to uphold our fiduciary commitment by always putting our clients first and by providing the best care for those we serve.
