I first started working on earning the CFP® designation about a month after I joined HFG Trust in October of 2018. Not only is the CFP® coursework extensive, it also requires that the individual conduct business in a fiduciary capacity. I was drawn to the fact that the certification itself requires you to put the interests of the client ahead of your own. It was difficult. But after everything is all said and done, I am better for it and more prepared to provide our clients with the service they deserve.
