Individuals in the financial planning industry join NAPFA to enhance their skills, market their services and be a part of a collective, influential voice on matters that impact consumers and the profession.
Professionals who become NAPFA-Registered Financial Advisors are committed to the three primary ideals of NAPFA:

  • The belief that clients are best served by a comprehensive approach to financial planning.
  • The highest levels of competency must be achieved and maintained.
  • Fee-Only compensation and a fiduciary relationship are vital to placing the interests of the client above all others.

The Garrett Planning Network, Inc. (GPN) is a nationwide network of professional, Fee-Only financial advisors who are dedicated to providing independent, objective financial planning and advice to people from all walks of life, on an hourly as-needed basis. Only 1% of the nation's financial planning firms are structured this way. As staunch consumer advocates and Fee-Only client fiduciaries, GPN Members continue to demonstrate their commitment to serving the public's best interests by making competent, Fee-Only financial advice accessible to all people. Many financial advisors accept clients only if they meet certain income and net worth requirements. GPN members believe, however, that professional, objective financial advice is something all Americans need, at least periodically, to build the brightest financial futures. Holding to this philosophy, GPN members offer the same quality, professional advice to all clients, not just the affluent.
