HOW DO I KNOWI NEED A FINANCIAL PLAN?
People hire financial planners for many reasons. These questions may help you decide if you need professional financial advice:
Do you have the time to attend to your personal financial affairs? Are you confused about where to invest your money? Has there been a recent change in your life that could affect your financial future, such as retirement, marriage, job loss, an addition to your family, or loss of a loved one?
Want to make smart choices about money before, during and after a major life transition such as, retirement, divorce, a career change, downsizing my home, or receiving a large inheritance?
Do you want to develop and implement a written financial strategy in order to achieve important goals in life?
How much do you need to retire?
Why Choose a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® Professional?
WHY CHOOSE A CERTIFIEDFINANCIALPLANNER®PROFESSIONAL?
A CFP® professional possesses the expertise to skilfully navigate all aspects of your financial future. They identify, and analyze how different and sometimes conflicting areas impact each other. It is the financial planner’s responsibility to competently and professionally gain a full picture of your personal goals, needs and priorities, including the relevant interdependencies of all aspects of your financial situation, which provides you with the greatest value. This, coupled with the fact that CFP professionals have an ethical obligation to put your interests first, makes them the appropriate choice.
CFP professionals demonstrate their financial planning competence through extensive education, a rigorous standardized national examination process, comprehensive continuing education requirements and accountability to FPSC® for a code of ethics, practice standards and the rules and regulations of their professional body.
The CFP designation, long recognized as the gold standard for financial planning in Canada, provides assurance that the design of your financial future rests with an individual who has met the highest standards of knowledge, skills, abilities and ethics in the financial planning profession.
