It’s not easy for investors to make their own quality financial decisions today. Successful long-term investment planning is too complex, specialized and challenging to be an avocation for a population of do-it-yourselfers and day-traders.
CIMA professionals integrate a complex body of investment knowledge, ethically contributing to prudent investment decisions by providing objective advice and guidance to individual investors and institutional investors. The CIMA certification program is the only credential designed specifically for financial professionals who want to attain a level of competency as an advanced investment consultant.
Since April 2011, CIMA certification has been recognized as the only financial services credential in the U.S. to have met an international standard for personnel certification (ISO 17024) and earned accreditation by American National Standards Institute. Click here
