Pillars of the Profession
Last week, Elissa and Dave had the honor of speaking at the Financial Planning Association of Greater Phoenix’s Symposium that was focused on how the profession of financial planning can best serve clients. Elissa presented “Pillars of the Profession”, sharing a summary of some of the greatest publications that have shaped how CFP® professionals cares for their Clients, and Dave presented “Policy-Based Financial Planning as Decision Architecture” and “How to Read and Apply Research-Based Writing” which both emphasize the importance of applying the best available knowledge to the practice of financial planning. Speaking engagements such as this one serve as an opportunity to collaborate with other intelligent planners in pursuit of learning and sharing best practices to serve clients.
