About us

We believe in the power of Financial Planning. The IFP is an independent professional body established by Financial Planning practitioners in 1986 to focus entirely on helping more businesses, advisers and clients to benefit from the Financial Planning process. 

We're committed to the development of the multi-disciplinary profession of Financial Planning and we're here to help our members to enjoy a rewarding and successful career as Financial Planning professionals. And to ensure that clients receive a service that they will love!

We're also an Accredited Body, appointed by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to issue statements of professional standing (SPS) to members who meet the requirements.
