Obtaining the CPWA® certification plays an important role in key career advancement areas for advisors. CPWA® certified practices report higher revenue growth over a five-year period than do non CPWA® practices. The average CPWA® certified team practice manages US$438 million in client assets and generates US$2.1 million in revenue. Team practices generate more assets per client than do other practices. The mean assets per client of CPWA® certified practices is nearly four times the assets per client of non-CPWA® certified practices, and revenue generated over the last 12 months is 43% higher for practices with CPWA® certified professionals than it is for other financial advisors.
