Recording of Webinar on Managing Conflicts of Interest Now Available

Feb 26, 2013

If you missed CFP Board’s “How to Identify, Avoid and Manage Conflicts of Interest” webinar on February 13, 2013, a recording is now available for on-demand viewing. This webinar introduced CFP Board's new advisory opinion on Managing Conflicts of Interest, addressing how CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professionals can best recognize and manage conflicts of interest in their practices, in order to comply with CFP Board’s Standards of Professional Conduct. Presented by Matthew Murphy, CFP®, member of CFP Board's Disciplinary and Ethics Commission, Rex Staples, CFP Board's Director of Investigations, and Adam Zajac, CFP Board's Adjudicatory Counsel, the topics addressed included:

  • What constitutes a conflict of interest under CFP Board’s definition of conflicts of interest?
  • Which CFP Board Rules of Conduct apply to conflict of interest situations?
  • How and when should a CFP® professional disclose a conflict of interest to a client or prospective client?

The webinar used several case studies to illustrate key issues related to these topics, and the presenters also addressed questions from the live audience.

Did You Know?

Among clients who work with an advisor, 87% of those working with a CFP® professional are satisfied or very satisfied, compared with 72% of those who work with an advisor without certification.
Anyone can call himself a “financial planner.” Only professionals who meet CFP Board’s rigorous standards can call themselves CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professionals.
The 2013 Household Financial Planning Survey shows that those with a financial plan feel more confident and report more success managing money, savings and investments than those without a plan.
