AIFA®, Accredited Investment Fiduciary Analyst™:

Bradford Creger earned the AIFA® designation in November 2004.  The Accredited Investment Fiduciary Analyst™ (AIFA®) designation was created in 1999 and is awarded by The Center for Fiduciary Studies.  A “fiduciary” is someone who is managing the assets of another person and stands in a special relationship of trust, confidence, and/or legal responsibility.  A fiduciary is required by law to always act in the best interests of their client, beneficiary, or retirement plan participant.  AIFA® Designees have acquired a thorough knowledge of fiduciary responsibility and can be an invaluable resource to investment fiduciaries and individual investors alike.

Those who earn the AIFA® designation, the next level of fiduciary expertise, successfully completed a specialized program after earning the AIF® designation.  The AIFA® designation represents a thorough knowledge of and ability to apply the fiduciary Practices.  AIFA® designees have a reputation in the industry for the ability to implement a prudent process into their own investment practices as well as being able to assist others in implementing proper policies and procedures.  AIFA® designees are qualified to conduct independent CEFEX fiduciary reviews for nonprofit endowments and foundations, ERISA retirement plans, private family trusts and high net worth individuals.
