Associate Financial Planner UAE 2018By Randell Tiongson on January 19th, 2018
We are excited to announce the first batch of the Associate Financial Planner or AFP program in the UAE for 2018. The AFP’s schedule will be this March 3 & 10, 2018 in Dubai, UAE. This program is exclusive to Filipinos.
Since 2013 the AFP has been helping Filipino financial planners in the Middle East improve their level of competency and professionalism.
What is the AFP®?
Statistics show that more and more people seek advice from financial planning professionals to alleviate the negative impact of unstable economies Thus, because of these people, a career in financial planning will be filled with opportunities and challenges. However, even if many people turn to financial advisors for advice, the dilemma arises in choosing the right financial planner for them, as an increasing number of people in the financial services industry call themselves “financial advisers.” Therefore, there is a need for true financial planning professionals to differentiate themselves and demonstrate confidently that they are truly competent and capable.
This differentiation can be achieved by choosing to become an Associate Financial Planner (AFP®), a professional designation awarded by the Registered Financial Planners Philippines.
