Decades of Experience. Here For You. Derek R. Williams, CFP® Chris Scott Craig Eddy, PPC What is a CFP? The CFP® marks represent a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation. An individual who has earned these marks has met the education, examination, experience and ethics standards established by the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERS™ Board of Standards (CFP® Board). Therefore, a financial planner who has earned the CFP® marks should be distinguished from a financial planner who has not. Consumers need to be aware that there is nothing preventing a person from declaring themselves a “Financial Planner”, and it is therefore incumbent upon the consumer to differentiate between a planner who has earned the marks and one who hasn’t. What is an RIA? Under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, as amended, an Investment Advisor is “any person who, for compensation, engages in the business of advising others, either directly or through publications or writings, as to the value of securities or as to the advisability of investing in, purchasing, or selling securities, or who, for compensation and as part of a regular business, issues or promulgates analysis or reports concerning securities…”This registration does not mean that the person is recommended by the SEC, it simply means that they are regulated by the SEC.
