Is the investment advice you are receiving really in your best interests? Unless your advisor understands and follows a fiduciary process, you can’t really be sure. Even those investment professionals who are required to act as fiduciaries might not have the experience or training to prepare them for this enormous responsibility. Only Accredited Investment Fiduciary® (AIF®) Designees have been certified specifically for their ability to follow a fiduciary process with their clients’ best interests at heart. Here are some attributes that make AIF® Designees different from other advisors or financial professionals:
Designees are required to provide documented industry and educational experience to qualify for the designation.
Designees must complete the Accredited Investment Fiduciary® (AIF®) Training, which covers the Prudent Practices® for managing fiduciary assets for wealth, nonprofit and retirement clients.
Designees must pass an examination to prove comprehension of the Prudent Practices® and ability to act in the best interest of clients.
Designees adhere to a Code of Ethics and Conduct Standards that show a commitment to a higher degree of industry professionalism.
Designees commit to keeping their knowledge and skills sharp by completing annual continuing education requirements.
