Member Benefit

Learn how FPA has the backs of CFP® professionals

A cornerstone of any profession is the willingness of those in the profession to have their voices heard on those policies that impact them.  

And, a key benefit of your FPA membership is your Association's myriad of advocacy efforts and initiatives designed to provide a unified voice for CFP® professionals and all practitioners as we look to build the financial planning profession.

Check out the following links to learn about FPA’s current advocacy priorities -- learn about the FPA PAC -- the FPA Legislative and Regulatory Issues Committee -- and the FPA Member Advocacy Council

What’s trending now in investments for financial advisers?

For the fourth consecutive year, Exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are proving to be the most used/recommended investment options by financial advisers. While ETF use continues to soar, cryptocurrencies are among the least used or recommended investment options. These and other trends are uncovered in the 2018 Trends in Investing Survey report by FPA and the Journal of Financial Planning. View the report and see where your peers are investing now and where they will be investing in the coming year.

Your Feedback Wanted!

The SEC is proposing three new rules and interpretations that will impact the work of financial planners and the clients they serve.

To collect member sentiment on the SEC’s proposals, FPA is asking members to provide some feedback on the SEC's proposed rule making.  If you have not already done so, please take a minute to offer your thoughts by clicking on the following link:
