Our Standards

Standards of Membership and Affiliation

任何类别的会员(会员)或附属机构(附属机构)的申请人必须符合以下标准才能被考虑录取, 并且必须继续遵守这些标准,以保持在NAPFA的资格和良好的信誉.

1. NAPFA’s definition of a Fee-Only financial planner

NAPFA将收费财务顾问定义为完全由客户补偿的人,顾问或任何关联方都不会因购买或销售金融产品而获得补偿. Neither Members nor Affiliates may receive commissions, rebates, awards, finder’s fees, 因客户执行个人的规划建议而获得他人的奖金或其他形式的补偿. "Fee-offset" arrangements, 12b-1 fees, 以交易为基础的保险回扣或续订和包费安排是不符合NAPFA对只收费做法定义的补偿安排的例子. If you have questions about specific compensation arrangements, please contact the NAPFA Membership Manager.

跟踪佣金是与销售相关的报酬,可以防止NAPFA成员将其或其公司的报酬方式描述为“仅收费”.” However, 在有限的情况下,NAPFA会发现一个潜在的NAPFA成员将他们或他们的公司的补偿方法称为“只收费”, notwithstanding the receipt of trailing commission. More specifically, if there is no other Sales-Related Compensation, and the applicant: (a) requests a transfer or assignment of the Financial Assets paying trailing commission to a person or entity that is not a Related Party; (b) contacts the entities paying the trailing commission that may not be so transferred and requests that these entities discontinue paying any trailing commission; and (c) donates any and all remaining trailing commission to a 501 c(3) charity. In that circumstance, NAPFA会发现,成员申请人将其或其公司的补偿方法称为“仅收费”并不是对补偿方法作出虚假或误导性陈述. If they otherwise qualified for NAPFA membership, 如果满足上述条件并同意以下事项,这将不排除它们成为NAPFA成员:

  • 提交证明所获得的步道全部已捐赠给慈善机构的文件(包括步道补偿的说明和数额相等的慈善捐赠收据).
  • To attest yearly that they continue to donate any trails compensation to charity.
