Record growth for black and Latino CFPs; status quo for women
March 11, 2020 by Charles Paikert
The number of black and Latino CFP professionals grew 12% last year — the highest increase ever, according to the CFP Board.
“We’re making a small but impactful difference,” says D.A. Abrams, managing director of the board’s Center for Financial Planning.
The growth rate for female CFP professionals, however, stayed the same, at just under 4%, although the total number of certified female advisors surpassed 20,000 for the first time.
