It requires each candidate to have three years of professional experience in the financial services industry, and for 30 hours of continuing education every two years to maintain the credential. Christian completed all seven courses required for the education portion of the certification process through the College for Financial Planning and completed his CFP® certification exam in November 2021.
Financial Symmetry requires all advisors to become CFP® certified as part of its commitment to provide unbiased financial advice to clients. The CFP® Board’s thorough process provides a strong foundation of theoretical and practical knowledge, which Financial Symmetry advisors use daily to provide services and advice that are in the client’s best interests.
