How Can A Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) Help You?


Financial advisors help you take control of your finances.

If you have a financial goal, be it retirement, college, home ownership, or just making better investments, a financial advisor can help to achieve your goal.

Financial advisors will work with you to craft a personalized financial plan that is suited to your needs, goals, investment strategy, and so on.

While planning is the primary service financial advisors provide, many also will make investments on behalf of their clients.

This includes trading securities, managing a 401(k) or IRA, or even working in other investments such as real estate or art.

Questions To Ask Your Certified Financial Planner (CFP®)


Are you a fiduciary?

Fiduciary financial advisors charge more but are preferred because of their obligation to always act in the best financial interests of their clients at every turn. Non fiduciary financial advisors can receive extra compensation for using certain products or services that may not be in the clients’ best interests.

What is your investment philosophy?

Relationships between financial advisors and clients, like most business relationships, are in many ways partnerships. It is vital for advisors and clients to be on the same page when it comes to investment strategy.

What is your communication style?

Financial advisors typically keep open lines of communication with their clients, remaining accessible in order to establish trust and transparency as they manage clients’ money.

FAQs About Certified Financial Planners (CFPs®)

A financial advisor usually charges a fee-only payment package centered around a small cut of a client’s assets under management such as one percent.
A financial advisor helps clients improve their financial health through various methods ranging from financial advice to direct money management.
A good rule of thumb is to seek out a financial advisor when you can save around 20 percent of your income.
Research not just what other clients say about the advisor but also what his or her qualifications and services are.
