A financial planner’s job is to  help clients achieve their life goals by planning for their investments, taxes, insurance, retirement, estates and, most importantly, expenses. Knowledge is the key and that’s why financial planners have to be masters of their domain and be aware of minute-to-minute developments in their field in order to help their clients make intelligent investments. They also have to win the trust of clients and ensure they have a good reputation in the market. Also, if they fail to ­complete the continuing education programmes organised by the Financial Planning Standards Board, India, they lose their certified financial ­planner (CFP) tag. More CFPs are needed in financial services companies, banks, distribution houses, insurance companies, equity broking and financial planning firms.
