Professional Designations

Hughes earned his CFP® (CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™) certification in 2020. This designation 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.

Hughes earned his CLU® (CHARTERED LIFE UNDERWRITER) certification in 2017. This designation has long been recognized as the fundamental and foremost educational credential for life insurance professionals. To obtain the CLU® designation, a candidate must complete required coursework, meet experience requirements, maintain ethical standards, and comply with The American College's Code of Ethics and Procedures along with periodic recertification / continuing education requirements.
