A Year in Review
2016 may well be remembered as the year that the financial services industry joined the digital information age.
Partly as a result of regulatory change, partly digital disruption and partly growing consumer awareness, 2016 saw exponential acceleration of the industry’s evolution from a product-centric to a professional business, where the role of the human advisor vis-à-vis technology is in the advisor’s ability to take a holistic view of the client, provide an unwavering commitment to professional ethics, and in their ability to provide the non-technical professional skills that technology can’t deliver.
In this environment of evolution and change, I’m pleased to report on a number of initiatives that FPSC undertook this past year to ensure CFP® certification and the financial planning profession are more relevant than ever. I've highlighted a few of them here.
