This issue of the Register is dedicated to the MRFC professional and why they became a Master Registered Financial Consultant. Their testimonials are insights into the value and prestige of the accredited credential...Susan Cappa, IARFC Register Editor.

The MRFC is 1 of only 8 accredited financial credentials listed on FINRA. Vetted and sanctioned by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA), consultants have to adhere to a strict Code of Ethics and maintain one of the highest requirements for continuing education. Contributors to this issue share their reasons for becoming an MRFC, the exam process, and how they are using the accredited credential in marketing their practice to clients and prospects.

The Member Profile section of this issue highlights Lisa Ford, MRFC® from Ascend Planning and Wealth Management. As an MRFC and a US Chapter Board Director, she serves her clients with a well thought out approach and commitment while finding time to support the Mission of the IARFC. Her mantra – Helping you to…Plan it! Execute it! Live it! – reverberates throughout her dealings with clients, her commitment to the IARFC and her personal life philosophies.
