I am proud to announce that Michael S. Riddell, Financial Planner, has recently obtained the Accredited Investment Fiduciary (AIF®) designation. The AIF® designation signifies specialized knowledge of fiduciary responsibility and the ability to implement policies and procedures that meet a defined standard of care. The designation is the culmination of a rigorous training program, which includes a comprehensive, closed-book final examination under the supervision of a proctor, and agreement to abide by the Code of Ethics and Conduct Standards. On an ongoing basis, completion of continuing education and adherence to the Code of Ethics and Conduct Standards are required to maintain the AIF® designation.
As you know, our office takes a tremendous amount of pride in placing the interests, needs and goals of our clients first. Michael’s attainment of this designation is another example of the measures our practice is willing to take to ensure that this vision is realized. Michael is accepting new clients at this time and looks forward to the prospect of working with them to enhance their financial well-being.
