Plantation , FL— October 5, 2012
Michael E. Mader, CIMA® CFP®, Executive Vice President at Veritas Wealth Advisors in Plantation, FL , recently obtained the Certified Investment Management AnalystSM certification. The CIMA certification, delivered by INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT CONSULTANTS ASSOCIATION®
The CIMA certification identifies individuals who have met extensive experience and ethical requirements and successfully completed advanced investment management consulting coursework provided through The University of Chicago, Booth School of Business. CIMA professionals must pass a rigorous examination covering a wide range of in-depth investment topics. Additionally, those who earn the certification must agree to meet ongoing continuing education requirements, and adhere to IMCA’s Code of Professional Responsibility, and Standards of Practice.
The CIMA certification has been known for many years as the most prestigious credential for financial professionals seeking the highest level of expertise as an advanced investment consultant. And, the certification program was recognized in April 2011 as the first financial services designation in the United States to earn accreditation by American National Standards Institute (ANSI®) under an international personnel certification standard. ANSI is a private non-profit organization that provides third-party accreditation services and oversees a broad array of standards development processes in the United States.
“The CIMA certification program maintains the high standards we’ve developed over the years by continuing to focus on the ‘Four Es’ – experience, education, examination, and ethics,” said Sean R. Walters, CAE, executive director and CEO of IMCA. “As a result, CIMA certification has become the new standard for investment advice in financial services.”
IMCA was established in 1985 to set the standards and practices for the investment management consulting profession and provide investment consultants with the credentials and tools required to best serve their clients. For more information about IMCA or the CIMA certification, visit www.IMCA.org.
