Quentara E. Costa of POWWOW, LLC accepted for Membership in the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA)

Chicago, IL – Quentara E. Costa of POWWOW, LLC in North Andover, MA has been accepted for membership in the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF PERSONAL FINANCIAL ADVISORS (NAPFA). With membership, Costa becomes affiliated with an organization of more than 2,400 of the most-qualified financial advisors in the nation who deliver objective, Fee-Only advice.

Membership in NAPFA and the NAPFA-Registered Financial Advisor designation are available only to Fee-Only financial advisors who meet NAPFA’s stringent membership qualifications. those standards require advisors to provide comprehensive planning services. In addition, NAPFA has some of the profession’s most rigorous education and training requirements. All candidates for membership are required to submit a complete comprehensive financial plan for a full-scale peer review or participate in a peer-review interview discussing the advisor’s approach to comprehensive financial planning. Furthermore, NAPFA’s continuing education requirements exceed those of any other association of financial advisors.

“I congratulate Q for demonstrating her dedication to provide effective, transparent, client-centered services by upholding the high standards that NAPFA sets for all its members,” said NAPFA Chair Frank Moore.

In contrast to most financial professionals, NAPFA members receive no commissions or other rewards for selling financial products. Those forms of compensation create potential conflicts of interest that may serve to undermine an advisor’s objectivity and fiduciary responsibility. It is for this reason that all NAPFA members must sign the Fiduciary Oath that explicitly promises to “place the clients’ interests first.”

Mr. Frank Moore continued: “NAPFA members provide what today’s consumers want, an advisor that provides comprehensive financial planning advice in their best interest with transparency of the costs. We welcome Q to our ranks and look forward to her contributions to our organization.”
