The Purpose of FHRI

The financial planning crisis in America is an alarming reality. The crisis is, in large part, fueled by the fact that many Americans don’t have access to the kind of resources needed to plan for their future. It is a problem that continues to jeopardize the financial health of each and every one of us.

At the Financial Health Research Institute, we understand that managing your finances can be an intimidating prospect; however, we also recognize that proper planning is the essential component to a financially-secure future. Through the research and development of educational resources, unbiased financial tools, and additional resources, F&H empowers you to make informed financial decisions.

Yet, having access to the right information is only half the financial planning battle. You’ll still need to seek the advice of a licensed financial professional who is qualified to assist you in understanding your financial plan and, when appropriate and requested, help you make any changes that may be required. Unfortunately, in today’s world it’s often difficult to know if the person calling on the phone or knocking at the door is looking out for your best interests.

That’s why F&H has created a Professional Membership Program that evaluates financial professionals in relation to a strict code of conduct; local, state, and federal criminal background check; and verification of current state licensing. Only applicants that have met our high ethical standards are authorized to offer F&H’s free materials and resources to consumers. With the F&H membership program, you can connect with an ethical financial professional who can answer your questions and assist in the financial planning process.

Founded as an educational resource for financial planning, F&H has now grown into a beacon of trust and reliability for consumers, as well as those working in the financial services industry. Through our financial tools, educational resources, and a Professional Membership Program, Americans now have access to the resources they need to properly plan for their future.
