CEFEX Certification

Retirement Plan Solutions Team Awarded CEFEX Certification

Centre for Fiduciary Excellence

We are pleased to share the news that Mariner Wealth Advisors’ retirement plan solutions team has once again received the Investment Advisor Certification from the Center for Fiduciary Excellence (CEFEX).

The team, previously known as Mariner Retirement Advisors, has achieved this certification for five years running after meeting the standards described in the handbook “Prudent Practices for Investment Advisors.”

The standard describes how an investment advisor assumes the responsibility for managing a client’s overall investment management process, which includes the selection, monitoring and de-selection of investment managers, as well as developing processes to implement investment strategies and fiduciary practices on an ongoing basis. These practices also include maintaining a fiduciary checklist for each of our retirement plan clients to ensure proper fiduciary governance and compliance with ERISA and implementing best practices as described by the Department of Labor. The independent CEFEX Investment Advisor certification demonstrates fiduciary responsibility at the firm, based on a best-practice standard.
