Certificate in Financial Planning & Advisory (FPA)

AIWMI’s Certificate in Financial Planning & Advisory (FPA) is designed to develop all-round financial planning professionals with proven understanding of the financial services industry and a high level of competency in designing bespoke financial plans personalized to the specific needs of each and every client.

Financial planning is a step-by-step approach to meet one’s life goals. Financial planning helps one determine short and long-term financial goals and create a balanced plan to meet those goals.

A financial plan acts as a compass and a Financial Planner acts as a Guide as one goes through life’s journey. A Good Financial Planner helps clients with a holistic financial plan which enables them to be in control of their income, expenses and investments and thus be a better position to achieve life goals.

Financial Planning is considered to be both Art & Science. Taking the same analogy a good Financial Planner is someone who like a doctor not only helps his clients manage a better financial health but as an artist also help them create a financial future which they so desire.

This certification program aspires to create such Financial Planners & Advisors whose approach is based on strong financial planning principles and whose behavior is based on strong financial advisory ethics.
