Course Overview

Description: The majority of clients most Financial Planners engage with have strong credit but occasionally we encounter clients who do not. Credit scores have a broader impact than what we often recognize often affecting the pricing of auto & life insurance as well as job and rental applications to name a few. Ashley Murphy CFP® AIF®, Founder and Principal of Areté Wealth Strategists, discusses how financial planners can help clients manage, monitor and improve this vital part of a client's financial life.
