Value of Working with an Accredited Investment Fiduciary (AIF®) Designee?
Simply put, the term fiduciary applies to the more than five million individuals who have the legal responsibility for managing someone else’s money. A fiduciary is required by law to always act in the best interests of his or her client, beneficiary, or retirement plan participant. Yet, many fiduciaries are not even aware of their duties and responsibilities.
Accredited Investment Fiduciary® (AIF®) designees have been provided with the tools and training to help them acquire a thorough knowledge of fiduciary responsibility and can be an invaluable resource to investment fiduciaries and individual investors alike.
Don’t risk going it alone; AIF designees have the expertise to help ensure that an investment management process is managed to an appropriate fiduciary standard of care.
AIF designees have successfully completed a specialized program on investment fiduciary standards of care at the Center for Fiduciary Studies. The Center, in association with the University of Pittsburgh Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business, was established in 1999 to provide the investment industry with the first full-time training and research facility focused exclusively on investment fiduciary responsibility and portfolio management.
