“The CFP designation is the only financial planning designation recognised worldwide that requires financial planners to adhere to world class professional and ethical standards,” he said.

 “It is very important for Australians to know what to look for when they are seeking financial advice. The CFP designation is the gold standard in advice and research shows that people who work with a CFP professional generally feel more confident in achieving their financial goals.”
