Our team is certified by The Center for Fiduciary Excellence (CEFEX) as meeting the standards described in the handbook, Prudent Practices for Investment Advisors.
The team, previously known as Mariner Retirement Advisors, has achieved this certification for five years running after meeting the standards described in the handbook.
The standards describe 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 help 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.
