Investment fiduciaries are constantly exposed to legal and practical scrutiny and it is likely that complaints and/or lawsuits alleging investment mismanagement will continue to increase. Although some of these allegations may be justified, many can be avoided by having clear knowledge of who constitutes a fiduciary and what is required of one. AIF Training helps mitigate this liability by instructing in practices that cover pertinent legislation and best practices. Obtaining the Accredited Investment Fiduciary® (AIF®) designation signals that you have a thorough knowledge of and ability to apply the fiduciary Practices. AIF 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.The AIF was named one of the "Ten Most Wanted" designations in the investment industry by Financial Planning magazine.
