Some of the leading financial planning educators are meeting in Washington, DC this week to attend the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) Board of Standards registered program conference, where they will discuss key trends in the US and global planning industries.
The event will see academics from US universities and colleges exchange ideas about the future of financial planning education and the changing needs of students and young advisers.
“Financial planning is increasingly a career in demand, making the need for top-notch financial planning education all the more important," said CFP Board CEO Kevin R. Keller.
“This conference will allow educators to enrich their curriculum and better equip the next generation of financial planners.”
Dr Charles Chaffin, the CFP Board’s director of academic programs said US university administrations are increasingly recognising CFP programs and creating academic units for prospective financial planners.
“More and more higher learning institutions are making financial planning education a key part of their course offerings, and curricula are evolving to prepare future financial planners to meet the growing needs of clients," he said.
