Our Team of Experts

We pride ourselves on our team of professionals who are prepared to handle all inquiries related to specific transactions within accounts, overall market outlook or re-evaluation of individual client needs.  We strive to educate not only our clients but also ourselves; our advisory staff have designations including the CFA and CFP® (outlined below):

CFA - Chartered Financial Analyst

The Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation is a globally respected, graduate-level investment credential awarded by the CFA Institute, the largest global association of investment professionals. The CFA Program curriculum provides a comprehensive framework of knowledge for investment decision making and is firmly grounded in the knowledge and skills used every day in the investment profession.

To earn the CFA designation, candidates must (1) Pass three sequential, six-hour examinations covering areas such as accounting, economics, ethics, money management and security analysis along with ethical and professional standards, (2) Have at least four years of qualified professional investment experience, (3) Join the CFA Institute as members, and (4) Commit to abide by, and annually reaffirm, their adherence to the CFA Institute Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct.

An integral part of the CFA Institute mission is to develop and administer codes, best practice guidelines, and standards to guide the investment industry. These standards help ensure all investment professionals place client interests first. CFA charterholders must abide by the CFA Institute’s Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct.

CFP® - Certified Financial Planner

The Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) designation is a voluntary certification that is recognized for its high standard of professional education, stringent code of conduct and standards of practice, and ethical requirements that govern professional engagements with clients.

To attain the right to use the CFP® marks, an individual must satisfactorily fulfill the four E’s: (1) Education, by completing college or university-level coursework through a program registered with CFP Board; earning an accredited college or university bachelor’s degree or higher; and completing a financial plan development “capstone” course, (2) Examination, by passing the CFP® Certification Examination, administered in two 3-hour sessions on one day, (3) Experience, by completing a minimum of three years of full-time financial planning-related experience (or the equivalent, measured as 2,000 hours per year), and (4) Ethics, by agreeing to be bound by CFP Board's Standards of Professional Conduct, a set of documents outlining the ethical and practice standards for CFP® professionals.

Individuals who become certified must complete the following ongoing education and ethics requirements in order to maintain the right to continue to use the CFP® marks: (1) Complete thirty hours of continuing education hours every two years, including two hours related to the Code of Ethics and other parts of the Standards of Professional Conduct, to maintain competence and keep up with developments in the financial planning field; and (2) Renew an agreement to be bound by the Standards of Professional Conduct. The Standards prominently require that CFP® professionals provide financial planning services at a fiduciary standard of care. This means CFP® professionals must provide financial planning services in the best interests of their clients.

The CFP Board defines a Subject Matter Expert (SME) as an individual who has relevant to the topic covered (1) an academic degree; (2) industry credentialing: or (3) a minimum of 5 years of experience in the related field. 

CFP® and CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ are certification marks owned by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, LLC. These marks are awarded to individuals who successfully complete the CFP Board's initial and ongoing certification requirements.
