BRIAN'S PROFESSIONAL DESIGNATIONS

In life, it’s important to find a financial planner you trust to provide sound, unbiased advice and professional services. Being CFP® certified means someone has voluntarily taken the extra steps needed to provide the highest possible standard of financial planning to those they serve.

How does working with a CFP® certified advisor benefit you? Certified Financial Planner professionals are held to the utmost standards of ethics and professional responsibility, which prepares them for a career-long commitment to provide truly personalized services to meet your needs; all while maintaining high levels of financial planning and professionalism. CFP® professionals maintain their professional edge through ongoing education and training in addition to the rigorous requirements to represent a high level of integrity, objectivity, competence, fairness, confidentiality, professionalism and diligence when working with you.


Chartered Financial Consultants®(ChFC®) are financial consultants who demand excellence of themselves and their team. They embody this commitment to excellence by fulfilling the requirements for the ChFC® designation, which includes at least three years of experience in financial planning, completing a specified program of study and continuously upholding a high standard of professionalism. A ChFC® is able to evaluate your financial well-being, identify areas of concern and help you address them by developing and implementing a financial plan that emphasizes your financial strengths, while reducing your financial weaknesses.

Getting your affairs in order during a divorce is made easier with the help of a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst® (CDFA™). This certification emphasizes the analyst’s ability to aid you in financial decisions and work with you and your attorney toward a settlement that fully addresses your long-term needs. By utilizing proprietary software and specialized knowledge, CDFA™ professionals can help determine the short- and long-term financial impact of a settlement. They are able to create, analyze and forecast various scenarios to outline a fair settlement that will help protect your interests and potentially keep costs low and reduce the time it takes to work through a divorce.

Why should I work with a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst®? When working with a CDFA™ professional, it means you are working with an advisor who understands the financial complexities you will experience during a divorce and will empower you to make educated decisions through the process which, in turn, can help save you time and money down the road. They can not only help you with decisions that need to be made for the short term, but also help forecast the long-term effects of the divorce settlement, including details of tax liabilities and benefits. Don’t forget, CDFA™ professionals are financial advisors too. With the training, knowledge and experience as a financial advisor, they can help you make the most of the divorce settlement by reassessing your investments and financial plan to ensure it’s aligned with your short- and long-term goals.
