Bucks County, PA (PRWEB) July 13, 2012
Dr. Michael Sullivan recently earned the Certified Investment Management Analyst (SM) designation. The CIMA® designation, conveyed by the Investment Management Consultants Association® (IMCA®), is the only credential designed specifically for investment advisors and consultants.
The CIMA certification identifies individuals who have met extensive experience and ethical requirements and successfully completed advanced investment management consulting coursework provided through The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania. CIMA professionals must pass rigorous examinations covering a wide range of in-depth investment topics. Additionally, those who earn the certification must agree to meet ongoing continuing education requirements, and adhere to IMCA’s Code of Professional Responsibility, and Standards of Practice.
The CIMA certification program was recognized in April 2011 as the first financial services designation in the United States to earn accreditation by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI®) under an international personnel certification standard. ANSI is a private non-profit organization that provides third-party accreditation services and oversees a broad array of standards development processes in the United States.
