Baker Tilly Wealth Management’s commitment to higher standards

We have investment professionals nationwide with diverse backgrounds, advanced degrees and certifications and designations, including Chartered Financial Analyst® (CFA®) and CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professionals (CFP®).Holding these certifications and designations is critical to our success but more importantly, our clients’ success. Here’s why.

Earning the CFA® charter is achieved by passing a rigorous series of exams to demonstrate superior competency in portfolio management, financial analysis and ethics. On average, fewer than 50% of candidates successfully complete all three levels of the CFA® Program (CFA Institute). Those that do are bound by high ethical standards, reaffirming their compliance to the CFA Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct annually.

In addition, CFA® charterholders seek solutions that are in the best interest of their clients.  They are uniquely positioned to provide specialized advice and creative forward-looking strategies tailored to a clients’ financial vision. Given their deep understanding of the investment industry and global financial markets, they can address complex problems as well as identify suitable investment opportunities.

CFP® professionals also must meet rigorous education, training and ethical standards and are bound by the CFP Board’s Code of Ethics and Standards of Conduct. CFP® professionals are required to complete 6,000 hours of professional experience related to financial planning and 4,000 hours of apprenticeship experience before becoming certified. And, they must complete continuing education every two years to maintain competence and demonstrate their knowledge, skills and abilities.

CFP® professionals are trusted to help clients make informed financial decisions regarding saving, spending, gifting and legacy planning. They help model financial scenarios, so clients are informed when planning for retirement, education, charitable contributions, insurance and more.
