What is a Certified Financial Planner® (CFP®)?

Financial planners help their clients, generally, individuals or business owners, reach their financial goals. To remain current with the latest investment strategies and products, financial planners must be serious about ongoing professional education.

Creating a Financial Plan
Financial planning establishes both personal and financial goals for a client. The process is a continuous one and requires taking stock of all a person’s existing resources, developing a plan to utilize them, and then systematically implementing the plan to achieve your short- and long-term goals.

A comprehensive financial plan is often composed of a number of financial assets in a person’s life, including:

  • Estate Planning
  • Retirement Planning
  • Investment Management
  • Tax Planning
  • Employee Benefits
  • Insurance

Financial planning is a dynamic process. Financial goals may evolve over the years due to shifts in a client’s lifestyle or circumstances. That’s why a financial plan must be monitored and reviewed periodically so necessary adjustments can be made.
