For one thing, it’s likely to hurt enrollment in CFP exam courses, one professor tells Financial Planning. Some educators are wondering if they should continue to offer degree and certificate programs.” This follows me recent decision to avoid moving ahead with affiliation with the CFP because their odd positions on how to approach financial planning are not in the public interest for working class Americans who seek professional advice. I plan to revisit the question next year after the dust settles on the current controversy. [polldaddy poll=7474742]
