Abstract

Enjoy the current installment of “weekend reading for financial planners” – this week’s edition kicks off with the launch of the CFP Board’s new Center for Financial Planning, which will pursue the laudable goals of attracting more young financial planners to the profession, improving advisor diversity, and lanuching a new academic journal for financial planning research, but in the process is increasingly putting the CFP Board into conflict with the FPA with overlapping membership initiatives. At the same time, the CFP Board also announced this week that for the first time in a long time, the average age of CFP certificants has begun to decline, and dipped below age 50 this year, as the organization’s ongoing efforts to attract young new talent is beginning to show signs of progress.
