JAFO31 asks,

What is a PFS - acronym finder listed 80+ alternatives? Also what is an FP client? Full Pay?


"PFS is a Personal Financial Specialist. It's an alphabet soup designation conferred by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). The AICPA regards it as competitive with the Certified Financial Planner credential.


"FP is a Financial Planning client, though I suppose "full pay" is equally descriptive of the relationship. <LOL>"

I thought F might be for fiduciary, but could not think or find any P-word that made sense with it.

Regards, JAFO
