A new Web site from the American College aims to clear up the confusion about which advanced designations are the best fit for a financial planner’s practice.

FinancialPlanningCertificationCenter.com allows planners and clients to compare the Chartered Financial Consultant and Certified Financial Planner designations. As both the owner of the ChFC program and the nation's largest provider of CFP education, the American College feels it is in a unique position to offer informed insight into the similarities and differences between these two certifications.

Visitors to the site will learn about the differences in content and delivery methods associated with the two credentials. The site also provides information about the requirements for each certification and additional study options that are available to financial planners enrolled in these programs.

The site features individual sections devoted to each designation. Descriptions of the programs, courses, and costs can be accessed, as well as a Frequently Asked Questions section. Video presentations help visitors to the site better understand each certification.
