The IFP has led the way in developing professional financial planners in the UK since 1986. The CFP License has been in the UK since 1995 and more and more individuals and firms are looking to the Certified Financial Planner program to raise their performance. Integration of the PlanPlus for Students will help raise the bar again.
Many of the colleges and universities that use the Personal Financial Planning textbook are preparing students for a career in financial planning, including the basics of their professional designation. Instructors are keen to be able to provide students with practical, hands-on experience using software like PlanPlus for Students, as students will be better prepared when they graduate and enter the workplace.
