Registered Financial Planner (RFP)
The Registered Financial Planner (RFP) programme was launched by the former Governor of Bank Negara Malaysia, Y.Bhg. Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Dr Zeti Akhtar Aziz in November 2002. The RFP designation was approved by Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) in March 2005 as the prerequisite qualification to apply for the Financial Adviser’s Licence and Financial Adviser’s Representative Licence. The Registered Financial Planner (RFP) designation was also approved by Securities Commission Malaysia (SC) in November 2005 as one of the qualifications to apply for the Investment Advisers’ Licence under the Securities Industry Act 1983.The RFP designation has also been approved by the SC for the application of the Capital Markets Services Licence (CMSL) with the implementation of the Capital Markets and Services Act 2007
The RFP serves as a mechanism for the MFPC to help fulfil the national objectives of making Malaysia a Centre of Educational Excellence. The RFP signifies the twin pillars of professionalism in financial planning – Professional Education and Practice Excellence. Most importantly, the concept of the RFP is defined by Malaysians. As of September 2012, RFP designees are licensed Private Retirement Scheme (PRS) distributors/consultants. The Federation of Investment Managers Malaysia (FIMM) which regulates PRS consultants grants RFP designees automatic recognition as PRS consultants.
The Affiliate RFP designation was launched by Y.B. Dato’ Mustapa bin Mohamed, Minister of International Trade and Industry on 6 December 2007. It was introduced in recognition of the commitment of the students undertaking the RFP programme. The Affiliate RFP designation is conferred on members who have passed Module 1: Fundamentals of Financial Planning and one other module of the RFP Programme. The Affiliate RFP serves as a measure to inject a new force of professionally qualified human capital into the industry. Affiliate RFP designees are potential Financial Adviser Representatives and Capital Markets Services Licence Representatives who will be given the appropriate guidance and opportunities to practise financial planning advisory services.
