Training and Certification Benefits
FPAM administers the CFP certification program. Employees of Corporate members are charged only RM250 per module reflecting a saving of RM50 from the normal fee of RM300 per module. This works out to a RM300 saving for the complete six modules. To date, many of the leading financial institutions are members of FPAM. These members commit significant numbers of personnel to the CFP Program. With FPAM’s recent introduction of the world’s first Islamic Financial Planning Program, it is anticipated that the number of certificants in this field will grow.
Compliance and Recognition
The CFP qualification is recognized by Bank Negara as a prerequisite in the issuance of the Investment Advisor’s license. In Malaysia, financial planning licenses are issued by the Securities Commission. The recognition conferred by the Securities Commission ensures that many of the retail financial services activities undertaken by financial institutions are in compliance with the industry’s regulations.
