Orlando, Fla. – August 17, 2010 – Brian Fricke, CFP, founder of Financial Management Concepts and “Worry Free Retirement” author and expert, was recently selected to join elite company in The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA®.)  The standards for entry into this organization are extremely tough; to date just over 2,000 financial advisors out of an estimated 450,000 financial advisors nationwide, have qualified for membership.

Brian Fricke is now a “NAPFA-Registered Financial Advisor.”  This designation is only available to Fee-Only® financial advisors who are paid directly by their clients.  NAPFA members receive no commissions or other rewards for selling financial products, reducing potential conflicts of interest.  Those forms of compensation create potential conflicts of interest that may undermine an advisors objectivity and fiduciary responsibility.
