Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many Certified Financial Planners with Investment Planning skills, more experience generally translates to higher pay. Relatively untried employees who have less than five years' experience make $54K, but folks with five to 10 years under their belts enjoy an appreciably larger median of $75K. Between 10 and 20 years, pay surpasses six figures; at this stage, the average professional scores around $103K. Veterans who have surpassed the 20-year mark may make only slightly more than those who are navigating the mid-career stage; the more senior group reports median earnings of around $139K.
