Designees must be able to understand and articulate the legal and regulatory environment surrounding the fiduciary, be able to develop and implement an effective investment management process applying the principles of Modern Portfolio Theory, document all due diligence, and above all, treat their clients with the utmost prudence and care.

AIFA® Designees can assist the Institution, Investment Advisor and Investment Manager through the necessary steps leading to Certification that the Global Fiduciary Standards of Excellence are being met.
