A good financial plan is a road map that shows us exactly how the choices we make today will affect our future.” ~ Alexa Von Tobel

Financial planning is a sun-rise industry with growing household debts, removal of subsidies and implementation of Goods & Services Tax. Everyone needs to plan carefully for their personal finances. What about existing financial intermediaries? What can it do for you?

The supporting body for this profession is Financial Planning Association of Malaysia (FPAM), through its certification programmes, Certified Financial Planning (CFP) and Certified Islamic Financial Planning (IFP).

As at December 2014, there are 2,400 certified members with FPAM. Potential Malaysian population requiring some form of financial planning is estimated at 8 million as at 2014.
