CFP® Board of Standards
CFP Board Mission:The mission of Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. is to benefit the public by granting the CFP® certification and upholding it as the recognized standard of excellence for personal financial planning.
FPA believes that everyone who holds themselves out as a financial planner should pass the CFP® exam and be a CFP® certificant. FPA works to serve the public by identifying ways consumers can find a competent, ethical financial planner. The CFP® mark represents the standard of education and ethics consumers should be able to expect from a financial planner. By supporting a single credible mark we can accelerate public recognition and acceptance of financial planning.
