Electronic Accountant Newswire (05/25/01) Vol. 105, No. 20 p.B7; Gauches, Claudia B.

The Certified Financial Planning Board has decided to create a global CFP certification program for its Certified Financial Planner credential. CFP Board Chair Patricia P. Houlihan said consumers increasingly see CFP credentials as the worldwide standard for qualified financial planners. John Carpenter, chairman of Canada's Financial Planners Standards Council, added that the group wants its CFP certification marks to become the highest international standard for financial planning. The CFP's effort comes at a time when the accounting industry has not agreed on whether to pursue a global designation for business services.
