Priority Financial Group Announces Partnership with the Financial Planning Association of Greater Phoenix

Serves as ‘catalyst’ to strengthen FPAGP’s initiatives in professional development for its approximately 400 members


PHOENIX, Sept. 25, 2023—Priority Financial Group (PFG), a third-party registered investment advisor (TP-RIA) serving financial advisors and financial institutions, is pleased to announce a three-year commitment of time, talent, and financial resources to support the Financial Planning Association of Greater Phoenix (FPAGP). The collaboration supports FPAGP’s initiatives in professional development and leadership training for the Valley chapter’s approximately 400 CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) professionals.

PFG’s nationwide network of financial advisors serves nearly 22,000 clients and includes 45 advisors located in Arizona. They include PFG affiliate advisors, independent advisors running their own wealth advisory practices, and advisors serving clients within financial institutions such as credit unions.

PFG’s commitment with FPAGP aims to strengthen the chapter’s role in providing continuing education and learning opportunities to empower financial professionals to deliver quality financial planning and advice. Concurrently, through its “Quality Advisors...Quality Advice” philosophy, PFG places a premium on developing financial advisors that focus on their clients’ best interests, serving their financial planning needs from a holistic, long-term view to achieve their financial goals.   

“Priority Financial Group serves as a catalyst in our efforts to foster awareness and advance the profession,” said FPAGP President of the Board Dale Walters, CPA, PFS. He continued, “Becoming a professional in our industry requires more than number crunching. People skills, leadership skills, empathy, and patience—these aren’t taught in textbooks, but learned when we come together as a community and deliver the resources our members need to best serve their clients.” 

Mike Prior, PFG founder and CEO, adds, “Our support of the Financial Planning Association of Greater Phoenix is the perfect fit with PFG; it reflects our ongoing commitment to community involvement and knowledge-sharing of best practices among financial advisors to deliver quality advice. We look forward to working closely with the association to elevate understanding of the role of financial professionals in Phoenix.”

Representatives from PFG will participate in this year’s Financial Planning Association® Annual Conference, September 27-29, at the Phoenix Convention Center. For more information, visit the FPA Annual Conference 2023 page.
