Working with a planner is a very personal relationship. You want to work with someone who puts you first.
Blueprint Financial is an independent, fee-based financial planning firm. The principals are Certified Financial Planners™. The CFP® mark helps consumers identify financial planners who are committed to competent and ethical behavior when providing financial planning services. We are not associated with a brokerage firm and we do not sell investment products or receive brokerage commissions. We are required to maintain technical competence and fulfill ethical obligations through continuing education studies. We are also on the Executive Committee of the Financial Planning Association of New York and adhere to that standard of care for our clients. The FPA believes that all financial planning services should be delivered in accordance with the following statements:
- put the client's best interests first
- act with due care and in utmost good faith
- do not mislead clients
- provide full and fair disclosure of all material facts
- disclose and fairly manage all material conflicts of interest
