Our Commitment to Ethical Standards
CFP Board is committed to setting and enforcing ethical standards that benefit the public. As part of CFP® certification, all CFP® professionals commit to CFP Board to uphold the high standards outlined in the Code of Ethics and Standards of Conduct. And the steps CFP Board has taken to enforce the Code and Standards — including releasing public disciplinary information — distinguishes CFP® certification from other credentials in the financial services profession.
THE COMMITMENT MADE BY ALL CFP® PROFESSIONALS
CFP® certification is the standard of excellence for the financial planning profession. All CFP® professionals commit to CFP Board that they will comply with CFP Board's Code of Ethics and Standards of Conduct. This helps give clients confidence they're partnering with a financial advisor who will put them on the path to a secure future.
Report a CFP® Professional
If you believe that a CFP® professional has violated the Code of Ethics and Standards of Conduct, you may file a complaint. While you are not required to provide evidence to support your complaint, it will assist CFP Board's review of your complaint if you do.
