Financial Planner Reentry Initiative


The CFP Board Center for Financial Planning, in partnership with career reentry firm iRelaunch, has created the Financial Planner Reentry Initiative (FPRI) to connect firms in the financial planning sector with experienced professionals seeking to reenter the workforce after a career break. The FPRI supports firms in establishing return-to-work internships that create a pathway to employment for returning professionals and allows employers to increase the number of mid- to senior-level professionals in their ranks. FPRI is modeled after similar programs that have been proven successful in other areas of financial services, as well as in engineering and technology sectors.

Paid return-to-work internships were offered in 2017-2018 in various locations around the country by firms participating in the first cohort of FPRI. New return-to-work internships will be posted on this webpage as they become available in 2018-2019 in the second cohort of FPRI firms.

Pilot Firms

The CFP Board Center for Financial Planning would like to thank the firms that participated in the Center’s initial FPRI pilot in 2017-2018: Edelman Financial Services and United Capital, both of which are sponsored by TD Ameritrade Institutional; Luma Wealth and Yeske Buie, sponsored by Schwab Advisor Services through the Schwab Foundation; and Fidelity Investments.
