EFPA Czech Republic has the first 5 holders of the highest designation, EFPA EFP (European Financial Planner)
"I am so glad that EFPA Czech Republic has the first professionals to reach the imaginary peak in internationally recognized European professional standards in financial planning. The EFPA EFP certificate holders currently represent the ultimate lead among financial planners in the Czech Republic. For their clients it is a guarantee not only of a precise professional approach but also of extraordinary knowledge and expertise across the financial market, "says Marta Gellová.
The difficulty of this certification shows not only the time that EFPA EFP students have to devote to the studies - around 8 months, but also the number of successful graduates, which is only 60% of the exam participants. Those interested in this professional qualification must already have the EFPA EFA certification, which hold almost 300 elite financial advisors in the Czech Republic.
For clients, this is an added value of comprehensive solution based on analysis and financial planning. A survey shows that, for example, 86% of EFPA EFA certified consultants have more loyal clients, and 89% of them are now managing larger assets. Benefits are also seen by companies that have enabled their consultants to obtain EFPA certification as certified professionals are significantly more loyal to their employers.
This year's trends on the financial markets and the expectations of next year will also be devoted to VII EFPA Czech Republic International Conference "From Expertise to Success", held on September 26th in Prague. For example, the conference participants can look forward to an interesting performance by keynote speaker, the Czech Biathlon Chairman and successful sports manager Jiří Hamza. In his presentation he will refer to the parallels between sport and the financial planning profession.
