The CFP Practitioner

Australian consumers should check the qualifications of their financial planners to ensure they are receiving the highest levels of ethical and professional advice.

The CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER (CFP®) designation is the only qualification for financial planners that is recognised worldwide, requiring financial planners to adhere to high professional and ethical standards. By meeting the ongoing competency requirements of continuing professional development and by adhering to the FPA’s Code of Professional Practice, the financial planners at Ford Scott demonstrate to our clients that we have voluntarily agreed to meet high standards of professionalism in a changing financial world.
