PROFESSIONAL DESIGNATIONS help us serve you
Jennifer Napper holds two important professional designations, CFP® and CDFA®, indicative of her commitment to enhance her knowledge in order to best serve her clients. Here is a brief explanation of each.
CFP® – Certified Financial Planner™ professional
Most people think that all financial planners are “certified,” but this isn’t true. Anyone can call himself or herself a “financial planner.” Only those who have fulfilled the certification and renewal requirements of CFP Board can display the CFP® certification marks.
Individuals certified by CFP Board have taken the extra step to demonstrate their professionalism by voluntarily submitting to the rigorous CFP® certification process that includes demanding education, examination, experience and ethical requirements.
CDFA® - Certified Divorce Financial Analyst®
Getting your affairs in order during a divorce is made easier with the help of a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst® (CDFA®). This certification emphasizes the analyst’s ability to aid you in financial decisions and work with you and your attorney toward a settlement that fully addresses your long-term needs.
Using proprietary software and specialized knowledge, CDFA® professionals can help determine the short- and long-term financial impact of a settlement. They are able to create, analyze and forecast various scenarios to outline a fair settlement that will help protect your interests and potentially keep costs low and reduce the time it takes to work through a divorce.
Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards Inc. owns the certification marks CFP®, Certified Financial Planner™, and in the U.S., which it awards to individuals who successfully complete CFP Board's initial and ongoing certification requirements.
Certified Divorce Financial Analyst® and CDFA® are trademarks of the Institute for Divorce Financial Analysts™ in the U.S. and/or other countries.
