I qualify for it bec. of past work experience. I was just wondering whether it would be worth pursuing and using in financial planning. Should I even bother?

Hi Rodee,

It’s absolutely worth it to pursue a career in financial planning. Having pursued all of my professional designations at (, plenty of opportunities have been presented to me because of my additional education. I am a licensed and experienced financial planner and a lot of my success came from my decision to attend school to gain more financial literacy in the CFP background. Really weigh out your pros and cons with this one. Yes, it will take quite a bit of your efforts and time to go down the route of pursuing a Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) designation, but the future benefits will surely outweigh this timely pursuit. Good luck to you! I hope that this helped!
