The article focuses on the increased usage of the term "fee based" by planners. For few years now three years of compensation generally have been mentioned in the printed materials and media write-ups of financial planning: commissions, fee-only or the combination of fees and commissions. these are pretty clear statements that allow a prospective client to evaluate the compensation angle. The term "fee-based" should be relegated to the dustbin before media and consumer organization use it as an axe to bludgoen financial planning for being anti-consumer. Finally a mention is there about the increase in the coverage practice management issues in the "Journal of Financial Planning." The author invites the readers to submit papers on the the subject and also there is a brief introduction of the articles covered in the April 1994 issue of the journal.
