The college found that an advanced degree was beneficial in other ways. Three-quarters of respondents (72%) said their client base grew after getting a designation, as well as their earnings.

“We have always believed that advanced financial planning studies benefits not only the professional, but also their clients,” Dirk Pantone, president of the College for Financial Planning, said in the news release.  “Our survey shows that continuing education also offers benefits in terms of compensation and business development.”

Founded in 1972, the College for Financial Planning-A Kaplan Company is headquartered in Centennial, Colo.
