CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERS/ CFP® professionals are held to strict ethical standards to ensure financial planning recommendations are in your best interest. A CFP® professional must acquire several years of experience related to delivering financial planning services to clients and pass the comprehensive CFP® Certification Exam before they can use the CFP® designation. As you begin to consider how best to manage your financial future, you should feel confident knowing that with Chris Merchant, you’re receiving the highest standard of financial planning service available.

Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards Inc. owns the certification marks CFP®, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™, and CFP® in the U.S., which it awards to individuals who successfully complete CFP Board’s initial and ongoing certification requirements.
