FPSB's Relationship to CFP Board

CFP Board will continue to develop and enforce standards for CFP certification within the United States and its territories. As the owners of the CFP marks in their respective territories, FPSB and CFP Board have entered into cooperative agreements to protect the CFP marks globally.
There are currently more than 161,000 CFP certificants in FPSB Affiliate countries, reflecting a substantial growth of international CFP certificants in the past few years. Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards (CFP Board) currently certifies over 73,000 CFP certificants in the United States.
