Certified Financial Planner.png

David Baller is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional. A Financial Advisor who is a CFP® professional has demonstrated skill in analyzing and developing personal, long-term financial strategies. A CFP® professional has completed hundreds of hours of rigorous courses and examinations offered by various colleges and universities across the country. These courses are then followed by a 10-hour comprehensive examination administered according to the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards. The qualification process, comprehensive array of advice, and skill-based approach distinguish CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioners from other professional advisors, who typically focus on only one area of a client’s financial life.

The Platinum Council (previously known as Premier Advisor) distinction is held by a select group of Financial Advisors within Wells Fargo Advisors as measured by completion of educational components, business production based on the past year, and professionalism.
