Does having a qualified CFP® Financial Advisor make a difference?

  • Vanguard’s research found that  through relationship-oriented services such as providing cogent wealth management via financial planning, discipline, and guidance, advisors can add “about 3% in net returns”.    

  • Canadians who work with a CFP professional are more likely to report their financial affairs are on track than those dealing with non-certified planners (78% vs. 54%). FPSC Value of Financial Planning study, 2009-2012, 15,000 surveys.

  • “... non-advised has 2.73 times less financial assets. ... Relative to comparable respondents who do not have a financial advisor, advised respondents feel significantly more confident that they have enough money to retire comfortably” [3,610 total respondents] Montmarquette, Claude. (2012), Econometric Models on the Value of Advice of a Financial Advisor, Centre for Interuniversity Research and Analysis on Organizations (CIRANO) and Université de Montréal
