The Institute for Divorce Financial Analysts™ (IDFA™) is pleased to announce that Michael A. Edberg of J.M. Edberg Investment Management in Bethesda, Maryland recently completed a specialized educational program in professional divorce analysis and is now a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst™ (CDFA™).
Mr. Edberg is trained to provide financial information and assistance to people going through a divorce. He evaluates the tax implications of dividing property and the financial impact of various settlement options for dividing marital property (including pensions) and child and spousal support payments.
At J.M. Edberg Investment Management, we help single parents, young families and those facing the turmoil of divorce plan for a secure financial future. “At J.M. Edberg Investment Management, we can now help divorcing couples determine the short-term and long-term financial impact of a proposed divorce settlement to make sure it works now as well as down the road,” says Michael Edberg (CFA, CDFA™). “We examine and analyze the financial issues of a divorce, providing our clients and their lawyers with data to help strengthen their case. We help our clients avoid the common financial pitfalls of divorce by offering valuable insight into the pros and cons of different settlement proposals.”
Edberg added “We see this as a natural add-on to our growing investment management practice”.
Founded in 1993, IDFA™ currently has more than 2,000 CDFAs across the United States and Canada. The number of professionals receiving the CDFA™ designation continues to grow at nearly 15% each year. The designation and this niche industry are expanding rapidly as more people across the country search for alternative divorce processes – from collaborative law to mediation – rather than litigating their case using lawyers as their only line of defense.
