FPA is the premier resource connecting consumers with financial planners that will deliver advice using an objective, client-centered, ethical process. FPA believes that public service is an important part in building the financial planning profession and has a strong commitment to providing pro bono financial planning in times of disaster and to those in need. FPA's National Financial Planning Support Center, funded in part by grants from the Foundation for Financial Planning, provides one-on-one pro bono financial planning consultations to victims of disaster and to the military.
Since 1983, the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors has been promoting client-centered comprehensive financial planning. This means that NAPFA members can counsel you about almost any issue including those you have not considered. Fee-Only compensation indicates that an advisor never accepts commissions or compensation of any kind related to the products he or she recommends. NAPFA-Registered Financial Advisors maintain the highest standards of proficiency in the industry.
The mission of Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. (CFP Board) is to benefit the public by granting the CFP® certification and upholding it as the recognized standard of excellence for personal financial planning.
