About FPI




History

The Financial Planning Institute of Southern Africa (FPI) is a South African Qualifications Authority recognised professional body for financial planners in South Africa. It is the only institution in South Africa to offer the CFP® certification, as well as an approved examination body for the FAIS regulatory examinations.

As a non-profit professional body, founding and affiliate member of Financial Planning Standards Board (FPSB), the Institute exists to improve the level of professionalism and positively influence the quality of advice provided by its members. There are 25 other affiliate member countries who offer the CFP® certification.
In 2012, FPI was highly commended by FPSB and awarded Tier 1 Affiliate Status for receiving 96% in the global assessment. This is the highest achievement any affiliate has ever received.
