Signing an oath to uphold a fiduciary standard of care
Level 1: Inbound/Outbound perspective of one country: GFP (Country of Focus). E.g. GFP (USA)
Level 2: A ‘CFP lite’ in a foreign country: Nothing new, other than 'Candidate for GFP cross-border designation.'
Level 3: A specific cross-border bilateral issue focus, so two countries will be listed with the first being where the candidate is primary qualified and the second where they've done their cross-border study. E.g. GFP (USA/AUS)
