Congratulations to Jon Garlow, CPWA®, AIF®, on completing your certification as an Accredited Investment Fiduciary® from Fi360 (now Broadridge)! Consistently pursuing ways to sharpen the saw for the benefit of our clients.
The purpose of the AIF® designation is to assure those responsible for managing or advising on investor assets have a fundamental understanding of the principles of fiduciary duty, the standards of conduct for acting as a fiduciary, and a process for carrying out fiduciary responsibility.
The AIF® mark is held by the Center for Fiduciary Studies, LLC, a Fiduciary360 (fi360) company. The professional designations awarded by fi360 demonstrate the focus on all the components of a comprehensive investment process, related fiduciary standards of care, and commitment to excellence.
