Nobody has ever been able to tell me how many of the 68,000 CFP's are fee-only? At one time I saw only 22%. Maybe now we'll find out the truth! Love the transparent world we are living in!

And these same jackasses wonder why less than one half of the people taking the CFP curriculum at colleges sign up and take the CFP exam? Who in their right mind would want to be associated with this group of stooges?

Comment in Investment News: "This is not about us changing," CFP Board chief executive Kevin Keller said in an interview. "FPA and NAPFA fully support the CFP Board as the standard-setting body, and we're working to facilitate their compliance with our standards." This strikes me as an incredibly arrogant and narrow statement.
