We are pleased to announce that Bess Butler Brunson recently earned her CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification.

All CFP® professionals must complete college-level courses approved by the CFP Board in topics such as financial planning, tax planning, estate planning, risk management and financial plan development. They must pass the CFP® exam, acquire at least 4,000 hours of relevant financial planning experience and are bound by the CFP Board’s Standards of Professional Conduct. In addition, there are ongoing continuing education and ethics requirements in order to maintain the right to use the CFP® marks.
