Recorded Webinar -- How to Determine if You're in a Financial Planning Engagement

May 15, 2014
A recording of the webinar, “Is This Financial Planning: How to Determine if You're in a Financial Planning Engagement,” is now available for on-demand viewing.

Held on May 14, 2014, the webinar addressed one of the most frequent questions CFP® professionals submit to CFP Board's Professional Standards staff: "Am I providing financial planning?" The question is an important one, given CFP® professionals' obligation under CFP Board's Standards of Professional Conduct to adhere to a fiduciary standard when providing financial planning.

This webinar, hosted by Matthew Winterhalter, Esq., CFP Board's Compliance Counsel, with panelists Jeffrey T. Weekes, CFP®, Vice President, The Weekes-Cardwell-Ford Group at Morgan Stanley, and Adam Zajac, Esq., CFP Board's Adjudicatory Counsel,
uses real-life scenarios to illustrate how a CFP® professional can determine if a client relationship constitutes financial planning.
