Get a real designation like the CFP

Neither, Investment Representative is best.

none of the designations will mean much if you can't bring in the assets.

I think they are good CE courses if your company is picking up the tab.  Even the CFP (which I have) will not drive business to you.  It does supply you with alot of knowledge that helps toward making you an expert, which will help you win business.


If your looking for something that will drive business to you, your better of spending the money on marketing rather than a designation

Which designation(s) will help your clients? Focus on that one or those. 


Anything else only strokes the broker's ego.
