The Financial Planning Association is looking for members willing to participate in its latest compensation and staffing benchmark study.
   The biennial study-conducted by the FPA, Moss Adams LLP and SEI Advisor Network- looks into the recruiting, retention, compensation and staffing practices of financial planning firms.

   All participants in the study will receive a hard copy edition of the final study at no cost, as well as a summary report comparing their firm's results with the rest of respondents. All respondent information is confidential and participation is free.
   "This study helps all types of financial planners, from small solo practitioners to those in large firms, better understand the business of financial planning, better understand what it takes to succeed as a financial planner," says Sean Walters, group director of Knowledge Management and Community for FPA. "The more financial planners who participate in this study the better and more useful the results will be for all those involved in the financial planning profession."
