Certifications and Designations

Justin Neal has earned several designations which include:


The CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) certification is one of the most recognized financial planning marks in the world. CFP® certification identifies to the public those individuals who have met rigorous professional standards and have agreed to adhere to the principles of integrity, objectivity, competence, fairness, confidentiality, professionalism, and diligence when dealing with clients. The certification differs from an educational designation or state license in that it is based upon requirements that have been determined by extensive job analyses of actual practitioners in the field, and therefore, continue to evolve with the profession. The CFP® certification prepares the financial services professional for a career-long commitment to meeting the ever-changing financial needs of clients.

MSFS - Master of Science in Financial Services

The Master of Science in Financial Services (MSFS) is an accredited masters degree program from the American College. The MSFS provides advisors with the tools needed to analyze, plan and implement integrated financial and life strategies to work effectively with high-net-worth clients and to better integrate ethical considerations into the financial planning process. The MSFS represents knowledge commensurate with an expert in the wealth accumulation process. Designees gain a better understanding of how to work with business owners to develop compensation, succession planning and retirement strategies and how to guide individuals in the areas of tax minimization, retirement planning, and estate planning.

RICP® Retirement Income Certified Professional®

The Retirement Income Certified Profesional® (RICP®) designation is an advanced designation and regarded as the first must-have designation in the last 30 years.  While many advisors are experts at wealth accumulation, there is an urgent demand for practical ways to structure effective retirement income plans. The risks clients face—economic and market uncertainty, inflation, outliving available income, changes in social safety nets, and rapidly escalating healthcare costs—mean financial professionals need all the latest thinking and techniques to serve their clients’ changing needs: the RICP® is designed to provide that knowledge.

CLU® Chartered Life Underwriter

The Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU®) designation has long been recognized as the fundamental and foremost educational credential for life insurance professionals. Since 1927, more than 94,000 individuals have earned their CLU®, helping them build a successful life insurance practice by providing clients with knowledgeable and ethical advice. For financial representatives, field management, home office personnel, and others involved in providing life insurance products to the public, the CLU® designation symbolizes continuing growth and commitment to professionalism. 

ChFC® Chartered Financial Consultant

The Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC®) designation focuses on the comprehensive financial planning process as an organized way to collect and analyze information on a client's total financial situation; to identify and establish specific financial goals; and to formulate, implement, and monitor a comprehensive plan to achieve those goals. The ChFC® program provides financial services professionals with in-depth knowledge of the skills needed to perform comprehensive financial planning for their clients. 

CASL® Chartered Advisor for Senior Living

The Chartered Advisor for Senior Living (CASL®) designation focuses exclusively on the unique needs of mature clients. Developed with input from a panel of industry professionals, the designation provides representatives with comprehensive knowledge on the full range of financial, health, psychological and sociological issues confronting older clients.
