As stated in " Why you should choose a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER Practicioner," published by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc.,

"Choosing a financial planner may be one of the most important decisions you make for yourself or your loved ones.  Financial planners can provide you or your family with guidance over your lifetime, or work with you to address specific concerns as needed.  A planner can play a central role in helping you meet your life goals and achieve financial well-being.  Consequently, take the time to select a planner who is competent and trustworthy, one on whom you can depend for professional advice and services.  Your future depends on the choices you make...

"Most people think that all planners are "certified," but this isn't true.  Anyone can call himself or herseld a "financial planner."  Only those who have fulfilled the certification and renewal requirements of CFP Board can display the CFP certification marks.  When selecting a financial planner, you need to feel confident that the person you choose to help you plan for your future is competent and ethical.  The CFP certification provides that sense of security..."
