The CFP® Certification Advantage

Working with a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Professional

Not all financial planners are certified. In fact, only a select group of planners have fulfilled the rigorous education and experience requirements necessary to become a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional or CFP® professional.

A CFP® professional always puts the client’s interests first and upholds a high level of ethics, objectivity, and professionalism. Through a Code of Ethics, a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional agrees to offer fair and diligent financial planning advice and services. Always putting the client first, they are required to offer objective advice and services that are based on the client’s individual needs. They are also required to inform clients how they are compensated.

Paul Hoogendoorn is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional, which means he puts his clients’ needs and goals first and only offers them services that are appropriate to their financial situation and objectives. We believe it’s important for clients to trust their financial advisor and working with a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional may provide an added sense of confidence.
