3ethos CEO Don Trone published an article for ThinkAdvisor on the issues of the new ethical standards and past governance issues with CFP Board.
The Board doesn’t give a hoot about certificants, nor about the best interests of the public. The Board’s fiduciary initiatives are being fueled by politics, power, ego and greed.
If the CFP Board were a country, it would be North Korea.
The Board has done more harm to the fiduciary movement than any other organization. And given the absence of transparency and of good board governance, certificants need to understand that there is no self-correcting mechanism to drain the swamp.
