Code of Ethics

Why does it make good sense to select a member of the Society of Financial Service Professionals to assist you in achieving your financial objectives?

Here are four very important reasons:

1.  To become a regular member of the Society of Financial Service Professionals, a practitioner must complete an advanced curriculum of college level studies and obtain a professional designation.

2.  Upon entering membership, all members must take the Professional Pledge of the Society which reads as follows:

THE PROFESSIONAL PLEDGE

In all my professional relationships, I pledge myself to the following rule of ethical conduct. I shall, in the light of all conditions surrounding those I serve, which I shall make every conscientious effort to ascertain and understand, render that service which, in the same circumstances, I would apply to myself.

3.  To maintain their membership, members must agree to adhere to a professional Code of Ethics which governs the conduct of their  business practices.  A copy of the Code of Ethics is available to anyone by contacting the Society of Financial Service Professionals at 610-526-2500.  Individuals who violate the Code can be subject to censure, suspension, revocation of the right to use their professional designation, expulsion from the Society, and other possible sanctions by regulatory agencies.

4.  Members must maintain a regular program of continuing education studies to keep their knowledge and skills current and in compliance with all applicable Society and regulatory standards.
