CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®)
Bringing all the pieces of your financial life together is a challenging task. Today, more than ever, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professionals are an essential resource. From budgeting, to planning for retirement, to saving for education, to managing your insurance coverage. “Finances” doesn’t mean just one thing for most Americans — and “financial planning” means much more than just investing.
CFP® professionals have completed extensive training and experience requirements and are held to rigorous ethical standards. They understand the complexities of the changing financial climate and will make recommendations in your best interest.
CHARTERED FINANCIAL CONSULTANT® (CHFC®)
Advanced financial planning for every person and every need, because you deserve a plan tailored to your specific priorities and goals.
The Chartered Financial Consultant® (ChFC®) certification addresses more challenging areas beyond the essentials of financial planning, such as behavioral finance, financial planning for families with special needs dependents, small business planning, financial planning for LGBT clients, financial planning for divorce, and more.
RETIREMENT INCOME CERTIFIED PROFESSIONAL® (RICP®)
A properly planned retirement can be the difference between years of hardship and years of relaxation. As a retirement income planner, it’s our responsibility to provide clients with the guidance needed to make fruitful decisions that can support you and your families in the long run.
Offered exclusively through The American College, the RICP® designation involves completing three in-depth courses covering the full retirement planning process.
CHARTERED LIFE UNDERWRITER® (CLU®)
The CLU® is the premier designation for insurance professionals. Launched in 1927, the Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU®) is the insurance profession's oldest standard of excellence.
