The Jackie Robinson of Financial Planning

CFP® Certificants in the News

In a recent CFP Board press release, Board Chair Kevin Keller announced that, “As we celebrate Black History Month, I want to recognize LeCount Davis, CFP® for his contributions to the financial planning profession.

LeCount was the first African American to earn the CFP® certification, and I am not alone in considering him the Jackie Robinson of financial planning – a leader who has led the way for so many Black advisors and inspired us all. In addition to founding the Association of African American Financial Advisors, he has been a tireless leader working to advance diversity and inclusion and to support the next generation of Black financial planners.”
