CFP BOARD OF STANDARDS LOOKS TO INCREASE FEMALE Financial ADVISORS
“Growing the ranks of female CFP professionals not only makes good business sense, but it builds the heart and soul of this profession, which is all about helping Americans achieve financial security. When more women advisors are helping more women clients, they are also helping spouses, children, families and communities,” said CFP Board of Standard’s Chairwoman Nancy A. Kistner.
Unfortunately, the number of female planners has not increased in the past ten years, remaining at only 23% of the 68,000 CFP members.*
The desire and need for more women advisors has resulted in the CFP Board of Standards to appoint a Women’s Initiative Advisory Panel to identify the challenges women face when becoming certified and beginning a career in financial planning, and to recommend solutions to increase the ranks of female financial professionals.
Kistner will serve as chair of the panel, in addition to leading the overall effort. For further information on panel membership and the imitative, go to: * https://bit.ly/12ecpj4.
