Global use of Your CFP Marks
FPSC and organizations in other territories that manage Certified Financial Planner certification are members of the Financial Planning Standards Board (FPSB), which owns the rights to CFP certification and service marks outside the US and its territories. Within the US and its territories, the CFP certification and service marks are owned by Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards Inc. (CFP Board).
In response to the increased internationalization of financial markets and the need to support consumers with international assets and interests, some FPSB member organizations have established reciprocity agreements allowing CFP professionals to obtain the rights to use the CFP Marks in select FPSB member countries.
All CFP professionals are required to meet the ongoing competency and regulatory requirements of each country in which they practice, pass a certifying examination or its equivalent and hold insurance, securities and other licences required to practice in that country.
