Only talk to Fee-only CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERS™ who have your best interests in mind.
Why is working with a Fee-only CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ so important?
- Fee-only means that these financial planners have no outside monetary incentives (such as selling a certain product for commissions), and have a fiduciary responsibility to solely act in their client's best interests.
- CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™, or CFP®, is a certification earned by financial planners that have (1) a minimum of 3 years of financial planning experience, (2) a least a bachelor's degree, and (3) passed the CFP® exam and adheres to the ethical standards set by the CFP® board.
The financial planners should be reaching out to you, not the other way around.
Based on their prior client experiences, target client demographic, and availability, our CFPs® reach out to customers they know they can help immediately. Finding a great financial planner on your own can be tricky and can bring about a case of "analysis paralysis." We help you get the quality assistance you need by taking out the legwork.
Work with different financial planners until you find the right one for you.
Too many people toss away the value of having a great CFP® if their first experience was a bad one. If you didn’t connect well with the financial planner you talked to, we encourage you to try chatting with a different expert, at no cost to you. Only until after you find a financial planner that meets your needs do we encourage you to become a client. As your financial goals evolve and encounter challenges over your lifetime, having a dedicated financial planner can advise you to succeed throughout your journey!
