ABSTRACT
The article discusses ethics in the realm of financial planning. The author points out the comparisons between how financial planning worked before the actual profession existed and how it works today. He also gives mention to Aristotle's Rhetoric Theory concerning his idea of ethos, which corresponds to a person's heart or core being. The relationship between ethos and ethics is described in the text as well as several key points on ethical practices in financial planning. Particular focus is given to the idea of the client always coming before the planner.
