What I understood about CFP?
CFP stands for Certified Financial Planner.
CFP makes you a Professional
CFP is a professional qualification. The certification programme is developed and maintained by Financial Planning Standards Board. (FPSB)
CFP can take you places
CFP is recognised as a prestigious qualification in 24 countries. For those of you who dream of globe trotting career, CFP will add feathers to you wings.
CFP is deep rooted in commerce
I get upset, when I see commerce students joining computer programming courses for getting a job. It's wastage of time, efforts and money put by them for 5 years of commerce studies. But about CFP, I was happy to note that it uses the commerce background of the students and goes on to build a strong career in personal finance.
CFPs are highly demanded professionals
CFP qualified professionals are highly in demand in multiple industries such as, Banks, Asset Management Companies, Life and General Insurance companies, Stock Broking Houses, Investment Advisory Firms and Financial Planning Firms.
CFP is short duration course with high success ratio
This course can be completed in 8-10 months and the passing percentage is higher than CA, CS or CWA course. It is an ideal course for those of you pursuing MCom after graduation. You can also complete this course after XII along with graduation.
