In the professional biographies of our investment professionals, you will see references to the professional certifications of CFA, CFP®, CPA, and ChFC®.
The Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation is an international professional certification offered by the CFA Institute (formerly AIMR) to financial analysts who complete a series of three examinations. To become a CFA charterholder, candidates must: (i) pass each of three six-hour exams; (ii) possess a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution (or have equivalent education or work experience); and (iii) have 48 months of qualified, professional work experience. CFA charterholders are also obligated to adhere to a strict Code of Ethics and Standards governing their professional conduct.
Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards Inc. owns the certification marks CFP®, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ and federally registered CFP (with flame design) in the U.S., which it awards to individuals who successfully complete CFP Board’s initial and ongoing certification requirements.
The Certified Public Account (CPA) designation is a professional license for public accountants granted by different authorities from state to state. In Illinois, the only state for which Advisor has a CPA, licensees must: (i) complete 150 credit hours (minimum of 30 credit hours in accounting) and obtain a baccalaureate or higher degree; (ii) pass the Uniform CPA Examination; (iii) Pass the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) Professional Ethics Examination; (iv) complete a minimum of one year of experience providing services that involve the use of accounting, attest, compilation, management advisory, financial advisory, tax or consulting skills, all of which must be achieved under the supervision or verification by a CPA; and (v) complete 120 hours of Continuing Professional Education (CPE) during each three year licensing period.
The Chartered Financial Consultant® (ChFC®) designation is administered by The American College of Financial Services. To earn the ChFC® designation, candidates must: 1) have taken eight or more college-level courses that address all aspects of financial planning; 2) complete a minimum of 30 hours of continuing education every two years; 3) meet experience requirements and ethics standards; and 4) agree to comply with The American College Code of Ethics and Procedures. All ChFC® advisors are required to do the same for clients that they would do for themselves in similar circumstances, the standard of ethical behavior most beneficial for their clients. The ChFC® is the property of The American College of Financial Services, which reserves sole rights to its use, and is used by permission.
