Professional Designations

  • CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM (CFP®) - The CFP® certification is one of the most recognized financial planning marks in the world. CFP® certification identifies to the public those individuals who have met rigorous professional standards and have agreed to adhere to the principles of integrity, objectivity, competence, fairness, confidentiality, professionalism, and diligence when dealing with clients. The certification differs from an educational designation or state license in that it is based upon requirements that have been determined by extensive job analyses of actual practitioners in the field, and therefore, continue to evolve with the profession. The CFP® certification prepares the financial services professional for a career-long commitment to meeting the ever-changing financial needs of clients.

  • Certified in Long Term Care (CLTC) - The Certification for Long-Term Care educates professionals in the fields of insurance and financial services about the potential emotional, physical and financial consequences a need for care could have on their client and those they love. CLTC education provides professionals with the skill set to discuss these consequences, offer a plan to mitigate them, and when appropriate, recommend long-term care insurance as a funding source for that plan.
