A vast number of Americans are not guided by planners. What if there were a way to offer planning to all segments of society without a noticeable decrease in revenues or profits within the profession? Here is a modest but serious proposal for making that happen:
- A Financial Planning Service Insurance Fund would be created, financed by advisory firms.
- An Office of Financial Planning Reimbursement would be established. It would allocate assets to the states based on revenue generation and distribute planner reimbursements based on an insurance claims model.
- Approved planners would be reimbursed on a flat or sliding scale with a maximum cap of, say, $25 per hour.
