CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification is the premier financial services designation. CFP® certificants have passed requirements for education, experience, and successfully passed a comprehensive examination covering all areas of personal financial planning.
In addition to being a CFP® professional, our founder Robert Schmansky has taught the CFP® required coursework to prospective planners and was selected to serve as a CFP Board Ambassador.
Investing by Design
NAPFA advisors have chosen to work only for their clients interests by not accepting commissions or compensation from product companies.
NAPFA advisors have all signed a fiduciary duty to the client. In order to become a NAPFA member, an advisor must submit a comprehensive financial plan for peer review, and complete the most number of hours of continuing education covering all areas of planning.
