CFP® Financial Planning

Financial planners have a strong propensity toward economics, numeric analysis and strategizing, and they find reaching monetary goals gratifying.

As a CFP®, you will help clients identify their financial needs and objectives, provide appropriate investment strategies for their retirement and estate planning goals, and offer sound insurance and taxation advice.

With Ashton College’s Certified Financial Planner program, you will gain the skills required to step into this dynamic career and put your natural born talents to work.
