What We Offer

FinancialPlannerWorld.com was created in response to the need for a fully comprehensive and unbiased resource for future financial planning professionals. FinancialPlannerWorld.com has created easy to follow step-by-step guides that detail licensing, exams, education, experience and registration requirements for broker-dealer firm principals and agents, investment adviser firm principals and their representatives, life and annuity producers, certified public accountants, as well as Certified Financial Planners and other personal finance professionals pursuing elective designations.

The introduction of new regulations has meant major changes to the financial industry’s regulatory environment. This is perhaps most evident in the migration of thousands of investment advisers from federal-level registration with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to state-level registration with state Securities Commissions as a result of provisions written into the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform And Consumer Protection Act. These many changes have left state and federal regulatory bodies with the daunting task of updating their online resources to reflect accurate information while at the same time facilitating this migration and enforcing other newly enacted laws.

Financial Planner World has worked diligently to stay ahead of industry changes and offers perhaps the most current and objective resource available on the licensing, registration and certification requirements of professionals offering financial planning services.
