Prefacing this by saying i really know nothing about stocks.

I hired a CFP a couple years ago through a trustworthy referral (actually 2). We pay $125 a month but tbh I have no idea what for… he “handles” our equity accounts (aside from current company 401k). I really don’t see the value but maybe I’m missing something?

Anyways. If we were to “fire” him… what do I do with the money in my accounts now? Tbh, I don’t even know what the “accounts” are. Everything is done through Ameriprise.

I’ve been in the industry for 23+ years, 16+ of those spent as a Producing Branch Manager. I hold S7, S63, S66, S24 and I’ve completed the education for the CFP (need to pass the exam). I excel in relationship building and providing exceptional service. I’ve only been on the full-service side for the past 2 years and my book of managed money is about $10M, with another $10M+ being self-directed by clients. I’d love to find an RIA job, what type of role would be suggested?

Alright gents, quick opinion how valuable is a WMCP & Chfc designation

Currently finishing off my finance degree wondering if it’s worth it before achieving a CFP & CFA

More context I aim for more roles in wealth & assets management or commercial / institutional investments either states side or Latin American, speak Spanish Portuguese.
