If you’ve been in the financial services profession for any amount of time, you’ve no doubt encountered the scores of professional designations available to you. Odds are good that you have at least one yourself. Designations stand as a hallmark of professionalism and expertise.
As Chief Academic Officer of The American College of Financial Services, I’m proud to say our portfolio of designation programs casts a wide net; approximately 20 percent of the financial advisors working in the U.S. today have pursued professional education though The College.
Still, we saw an emerging, unmet educational need in our community, and we’ve been hard at work filling the void to create a designation that focuses on an important discipline: advanced applied wealth management.
