Adjudication Process

How to Submit a Complaint and the Adjudication Process

The Institute of Advanced Financial Planners™ is a self-regulating organization (SRO). As such, it strives to monitor its members’ activities, with a view to maintaining the highest standards of professionalism.

The IAFP® welcomes any expressions of concern about an R.F.P.® If requested, we will strive to assist complainants in resolving issues of concern with our members. If deemed necessary, we will investigate alleged member misconduct to the full extent, leading to possible disciplinary action or expulsion from the IAFP® and revocation of the R.F.P.® designation.

Usually, the best first step if you have a concern is to contact the IAFP® directly (toll-free) at 1-888-298-3292. Ask to speak with the Executive Director.

When you are ready to request a formal IAFP® Inquiry process, you will need to fill out a type of “complaint form”. Complete it to the best of your ability, attach relevant documents, and forward it to the IAFP Executive Director. To obtain the form you can either:

a) download the Request for Inquiry form below, OR

b) phone us toll-free at 1-888-298-3292 and ask us to fax or mail the form to you.
