What is NexGen?

Aspiring and early-career CFP® professionals. This includes those who are currently undergoing undergraduate education as well as those who have been practicing as CFP® professionals for eight or fewer years.  For more information on how we define NexGen, as well as our Strategic Directive, please click here.

Many NexGen members are looking for ways to find early success in the profession and further explore their true passions.
