How many black planners? CFP Board will answer upon request
June 9, 2020 by Tobias Salinger
How many black financial planners are there?
It’s a surprisingly difficult question to answer. Few firms or organizations, if any, disclose a tally, making it more difficult to track the industry’s progress on increasing the representation of black people and other minorities.
But, for the first time, the CFP Board provided Financial Planning with precise numbers for 2019. The figures showed some improvements in representation — and that the profession remains far behind in efforts to reflect the country’s demographics.
