Symposium Series Week 4: Ethics

October 22, 2020

9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Location: Zoom

Each Thursday morning during the month of October FPA NEO will be hosting a webinar as part of the Symposium Series 2020! We hope you will join us for all or some of the sessions! This week will feature Dan Candura with an ethics presentation and additional hour of ethics for those who need it. 

Speaker: Daniel Candura

Topic 1 (9:00-10:45am): “CFP Ethics: New Standards for a Fiduciary World”

About topic 1: The CFP Board’s new Code of Ethics and Standards of Conduct, which guides the work of CFP® professionals, took effect on October 1, 2019 and is now enforceable by CFP Board. The new Standards add greater rigor to the CFP certification requirements, enhancing the value you bring to your clients. Using polls, videos, and case studies, a subject-matter expert will help you:

  • Identify the structure and content of the revised code and standards, and grasp the significant changes
  • Act in accordance with the CFP Board’s fiduciary duty
  • Apply the standards in your financial planning practice
  • Recognize situations when specific information must be provided to a client
  • Recognize and avoid, or fully disclose and manage Material Conflicts of Interest

Topic 2 (11:00am-12:00pm): “Insurance Producers & Fiduciary Duty”

About topic 2: The course will use case studies and interactive polling to help participants understand how CFP Board’s Requirement to act as a fiduciary whenever offering advice aligns with their duties as insurance producers. The course is intended for producers who are also CFP® Professionals.
