Seeking a financial advisor is comparable to looking for your next car: You want to choose the right mix of features and get something you’re comfortable with. This means you need to find a dealer that is committed to helping you find exactly what vehicle you’re looking for. When it comes to choosing the best financial advisor for you in Tampa, Florida, you will want to choose a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™. 


A CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ is the best option as a financial advisor for many people who are looking for help managing their finances. Why? These individuals have reached the highest standards of ethics and excellence in financial planning. They also work hard to develop trust with each of their clients, which is borne out by CFP® Board research that found that 90% of consumers said they felt more confident working with a CFP®.

How can the best financial advisors benefit you?

Working with a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ can allow you to reap many different benefits. Some of these benefits can include: 

  • Helping you navigate difficult financial situations — Dealing with finances on your own can be a tough thing to do. After all, most people may not have a lot of experience with financial staples like wealth management, retirement planning or asset protection. A CFP® professional must have a wealth of knowledge in these areas and more. In fact, these financial professionals must have between 4,000 and 6,000 hours of financial planning experience before they can be certified. 
  • Acting in your best interest — A CFP® professional is a fiduciary when providing financial advice. What does that mean exactly? It means that they work on behalf of other people, and they must put the needs of their clients before their own. Because CFP® professionals are fiduciaries, you can rest assured they will always be working to meet your needs and goals.
