About the Global Financial Planning Institute
Helping cross-border clients face special financial planning challenges.
Formed in 2020, the Global Financial Planning Institute exists to provide education, community, tools and ongoing research for financial planners, wealth managers, private bankers, CPA/accountants, and other advanced financial professionals working with international and cross-border clients in the US and Americans abroad.
Ashley Murphy, GFP (USA/AUS) CFP® AIF
Founder and President
The GFP Institute offers the Master Class series in US Inbound/Outbound International financial planning. This course is the foundation for US financial planners seeking to work with incoming or outbound expatriates or Americans abroad.
None of us are smarter than all of us. From connecting with international and cross-border peers to obtaining a referral to a service provider, we all appreciate the value of community.
From PFIC tax calculations, to a 'Covered expatriate' exit tax illustrator, we offer a suite of tools to make the work of an international and cross-border financial planner that much easier.
We provide up to date information to do with regulatory and legal changes affecting the international and cross-border financial planning world.

"I’ve learned a tremendous amount in this class, such that I can better serve my clients, but also so that I better understand which clients are not a good fit for my knowledge and abilities. This course is an absolute must for anyone offering financial advice to the globetrotting class and represents real value to our planning community."
