Fraud charges for Financial Planning Chief
Mark Spangler, a former chairman of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA), ... diverted $46 million of his clients' money into risky ventures he co-founded.
Spangler's indictment is not the first black eye for a former executive of NAPFA, a group representing fee-only financial advisors.
