FLEMING ISLAND, FLA. (MARCH 8, 2016) – ROBERT TUCKER, PERSONAL WEALTH ADVISOR OF CAMARDA WEALTH ADVISORY GROUP, HAS EARNED THE CHARTERED FINANCIAL CONSULTANT® (CHFC®) PROFESSIONAL DESIGNATION FROM THE AMERICAN COLLEGE, BRYN MAWR, PA, EFFECTIVE MARCH 1, 2016.
Candidates for the ChFC® designation must complete a minimum of nine courses and 18 hours of supervised examinations. They must also fulfill stringent experience and ethics requirements. Over 50,000 individuals have been awarded the ChFC® designation since its inception in 1982 and the credential is widely regarded as the highest standard of knowledge and trust for financial planning professionals.
The ChFC® program prepares professionals to meet the advanced financial needs of individuals, families and small-business owners. ChFC®s can identify and establish specific goals and then formulate, implement and monitor a comprehensive plan to achieve those goals. Individuals who earn a ChFC® can provide expert advice on a broad range of financial topics including financial planning, wealth accumulation and estate planning income taxation, life and health insurance, business taxation and planning, investments and retirement planning.
Camarda Wealth Advisory Group’s CEO, Jeff Camarda (CFP®, ChFC®, CLU®, CFA®, CFS®, BCM™, E.A., MSFS®), said of Tucker’s achievement, “Congratulations to Rob on earning this substantive financial planning credential! Back when I took them, I found the ChFC® even harder and more comprehensive than the CFP®, and I am very proud he’s invested so much time in enhancing his expertise and ability to serve our clients.”
“The ChFC® coursework is extremely thorough and requires a lot of intense studying. I spent approximately 450 hours studying for this designation. I decided on the ChFC® designation because it enables me to advise my clients on a myriad of topics, such as fundamental financial planning advice, asset protection and more,” said Tucker, when asked about the ChFC® coursework and why he chose this specific designation.
