CFP Professionals Top 75,000

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC:

The CFP Board of Standards has announced that the number of Certified Financial Planner professionals has topped the 75,000 mark in the United States.

The CFP designation was enacted in 1973. In 1985 a college was open for the purpose of a nonprofit certifying and standards-setting organization, which eventually became the CFP Board.

 According to the CFP Board, the CFP profession has never been stronger as it continues to experience growth trends in hiring, retirement and succession.

 “As we celebrate this significant milestone, we look forward to the next generation of CFP professionals with the hope that it will be even better positioned to serve the American people by being more representative of the population it serves,” says Marilyn Mohrman-Gillis, executive director of the CFP Board Center for Financial Planning.
