Wondering what a typical CFP salary is in Florida. Firm is looking for 5years plus experience, income planning heavy and high net worth clients. More on the planning side and service. I have 9 years in the industry and CFP for 4.

My insurance license has lapsed. Back when I was at Merrill I had to sit through a week-long training course. Do I still need to do that to regain my license? Can it be waived w/ a CFP certification?

Recently acquired my CFP. I’m just starting in the industry and relatively fresh out of college. More or less working as an associate for senior advisors with a focus on portfolio management & trading for them. I think I’d like to go the designation route to cover CE for the CFP and the APMA caught my attention as I see other younger advisors getting it. Is it worth the money/time? I’d like to dive deeper in portfolio management education. I understand CFA and/or CIMA would be the most valuable.

My company offered to pay my way through the CFP program, on the contingency that I will pass and also stay with them for 10 years after the fact. Is this normal?
