The CFP Board Debacle

The smear...  after 4 decades in financial services, the last 28 as a Certified Financial Planner

Fred D. Rouse III (Dresher, Pennsylvania): In September 2022, CFP Board issued an administrative order permanently barring Mr. Rouse from applying for or obtaining the CFP® certification marks. This sanction followed Mr. Rouse’s relinquishment of his certification and failure to file an Answer to CFP Board’s Complaint within the required time frame. CFP Board alleged that Mr. Rouse made misleading statements, such as claiming that individuals could be “100% certain” to have all the money they needed to retire in “Just 3-5 Years,” on his website and in a YouTube video created to advertise his retirement planning program. CFP Board further alleged that the YouTube video, which targeted individuals in their fifties and sixties with underfunded retirement savings, was misleading because it appeared to be a news broadcast although it was, in fact, a paid advertisement. Mr. Rouse also failed to provide information requested by CFP Board in connection with its investigation. CFP Board’s Complaint alleged that Mr. Rouse violated: (i) Standard A.2.b.ii. of the Code of Ethics and Standards of Conduct by making misleading statements in the conduct of professional services; and (ii) Standard E.5 of the Code of Ethics and Standards of Conduct by failing to cooperate with CFP Board’s investigation. Mr. Rouse failed to file an Answer to CFP Board’s Complaint within 30 calendar days of the date of service, as required by Article 3.2 of the Procedural Rules. Under Article 4.1.b. of the Procedural Rules, Mr. Rouse has been deemed in default, and CFP Board issued an Administrative Order of Permanent Bar. Mr. Rouse’s administrative permanent bar was effective as of October 20, 2022.

The Actual Facts

Why the bad press from the CFP Board 6 months AFTER he retired, and by their own admission, had already relinquished the credential, from re-applying for the credential that he already told them he didn't want anymore?

WHY they would make up unsubstantiated charges and go after him AFTER he retired the credential? Where's the proof of their statements?

He has acted as an educator and bestselling author for the last 15 years before he told them he didn't want to play their game anymore. In that period, he never provided any "financial services" as they define in the code they reference. 

They NEVER show that he performed any of those services. Just their unsubstantiated allegation trying to protect their massive financial services industry.

They didn't like a marketing video he posted.

They NEVER questioned the returns that he and his students were and are getting, or the posted trading results. DrRouseNow.com/trades

It's because they don't want to draw any attention to the fact that you CAN get these returns WITHOUT THEM when you know how!

They don't want you to know about the 30 year lie of traditional financial planning and how it almost guarantees that you’ll need to work into your 80s and severely cut back your lifestyle just to survive.

Or how inflation, rising taxes, health care costs, and stock market crashes that happen every 7-10 years, will destroy the dismal returns that financial planners can get you, leaving you looking for work when employment prospects, your age and health are most compromised.

They don't want you to know you don't have to settle for 10-12% returns on mutual funds or the hidden 4% return on annuities as they pocket those commissions and management fees that you constantly pay them.

They don't want you to know how easy it is, to get a substantially better return in less time with less money, and less risk while your money is under YOUR control.

Dr. Rouse has been fighting the Greedy Money Insiders for years. Showing his normal everyday Students that work for a living, HOW to get the cash flow they need to enjoy their retirement sooner. See what his Students and other have said at: https://DrRouseNow.com/comments
