The FPA Difference

Making the right decisions about your financial situation has never been more important. Knowing who to turn to for financial advice is essential.


When you choose a financial planner who is a member of the FPA, you will be working with a professional who puts your interests first. FPA members are committed to a code of ethics and professional conduct, so you can rest assured that they’ll do the right thing by you.

When it comes to understanding the intricacies of investment, taxation and ever-changing rules and regulations, an FPA member can help make sense of all the complexities and work with you to meet your goals.

Today, there are 8,500 financial planners around the country who belong to the FPA. The majority of these have achieved CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® professional status, the gold standard in financial planning.

FPA members can also hold another important designation, represented by the letters AFP®. Whichever FPA member you choose,  you can be confident that they work to the highest professional standards.
