Abed RabbaniOn July 17, 2017, Dr. Abed Rabbani has passed the Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) exam. The CFP® Exam is one of four steps required to earn the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM designation (in addition to the education requirement, the 6000 hours experience requirement, and the ethics certification). CFP® Certification Examination covers the following areas: financial planning, risk management, investments, tax planning and management, retirement and employee benefits, and estate planning. "This is TERRIFIC NEWS, I could not be happier for you, and for PFP," said Sandy Rikoon, the dean of the HES. The passing percentage in the most recent exams on an average was around 64%. CFP® certification is generally recognized as the highest standard in personal financial planning, qualifying financial planning professionals to provide their clients with comprehensive financial advice. In the Financial Planning profession, CFP® is globally recognized and well respected and more than 70,000 hold the designation. Industry observers believe that in the long run the demand for the CFP® is likely to grow as demand for fiduciaries increases.
