Designations

CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®)
Bringing all the pieces of your financial life together is a challenging task. Today, more than ever, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professionals are an essential resource. From budgeting, to planning for retirement, to saving for education, to managing your insurance coverage. “Finances” doesn’t mean just one thing for most Americans — and “financial planning” means much more than just investing.

CFP® professionals have completed extensive training and experience requirements and are held to rigorous ethical standards. They understand the complexities of the changing financial climate and will make recommendations in your best interest.

Chartered Life Underwriter® (CLU®)
The CLU® is the premier designation for insurance professionals. Launched in 1927, the Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU®) is the insurance profession's oldest standard of excellence. Today, it continues to be the credential for practitioners who desire to provide their clients with the security of life insurance and risk management.

Retirement Income Certified Professional® (RICP®)
