Everybody deserves a Certified Financial Planner ®
Finding a financial planner can be overwhelming. Knowing who to turn to for financial advice is essential.
All practising financial planners must hold an Australian Financial Services Licence issued by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC), or be an authorised representative of a licensee. It’s important to look for one who is also a member of a professional association, such as the Financial Planning Association. In doing so, you are protected by a number of benefits and safeguards.
All FPA practitioner members are committed to a code of ethics and high professional standards, over and above that required to comply with the law. FPA membership carries education and experience requirements. Members must comply with practice standards and continue their professional education. They are held accountable through a rigorous complaints and discipline system.
A Certified Financial Planner® professional has gone above and beyond to achieve the highest qualification in financial planning.
