  • Analyze specific fact patterns to determine if a financial planning relationship exists
  • Differentiate between the standards of care set forth in Rules 1.4 and 4.5 of the Rules of Conduct and apply each standard of care to specific factual situations
  • Identify information that must be disclosed to a client in writing when a CFP® professional is engaged in a financial planning relationship or providing material elements of financial planning
  • Define the information that must be disclosed to clients and prospective clients, when that information must be disclosed and apply each disclosure requirement to a specific factual situation  
  • Apply each practice standard set forth in the “Financial Planning Practice Standards” to a hypothetical financial planning engagement
