Code of Ethics Integrity Objectivity Competence Fairness Confidentiality Professionalism Diligence From its earliest designs, the Financial Planning Association (FPA) included a mandate that members adhere to a Code of Ethics that reflects their commitment to help clients achieve their life goals. All FPA members are asked to commit to this Code, CFP® certificants and non-CFP certificants alike. FPA's Ethics Committee is charged by the Board of Directors with reviewing alleged violations to the Code of Ethics and advising staff on ways to enhance awareness by FPA members of their obligations under the Code.

We know youve heard it before, but… An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest. ~Benjamin Franklin Its true! Check out the stats…
Education = Earning potential The more education you complete, the more choices you have and the higher your average annual salary could be. $1,500,000 $2,000,000 High School 2 Year 4 Year Lifetime Earnings
Saving vs. Investing SAVE for short-term goals INVEST for long-term goals Saving is putting money aside and not wasting it. Investing is putting your time or money into something with the hope of getting something greater in return – invest to make a profit. Investing involves risk; the more risk, the greater the possible reward.
The safe way to double your money is to fold it over once and put it in your pocket. ~Frank Hubbard
Types of Investments Savings (short-term) Bank Accounts – checking and savings CDs Savings Bonds Money Market Accounts Investments (long-term) Stocks Bonds Mutual Funds
We are made wise not by the recollection of our past, but by the responsibility for our future. ~George Bernard Shaw
Build Emergency Savings Pay for College Save for Retirement Today Buy New Home Investment Objective – what are you saving for? Time Horizon – When do you need to use the money? Risk Tolerance – How comfortable are you with the markets ups and downs?
What Can You Do NOW? Be smarter about your spending Shop around for the best deals Dont buy on impulse Use coupons or wait for sales Always use cash
What Can You Do NOW? Start saving NOW in a bank account for money youll need in the short term. Spend money only on what you NEED (and plan for spending on things you WANT). LIST your financial goals – with as much detail as possible. Save $150 for a new skateboard. Avoid spending on junk food to save for a new pair of jeans.
