CEFEX, the Centre for Fiduciary Excellence, LLC, a fi360 company, has certified Financial Management, Inc.  (FMI) in Little Rock, AR to the standard described in the handbook, “Prudent Practices® for Investment Advisors”. FMI joins the elite group of Investment Advisors to successfully complete the independent certification process.

CEFEX is an independent, global assessment and certification organization. The assessment process is based on the international standard, ISO 19011: Guidelines for Auditing Management Systems. The assessment is evidence-based, and all work is reviewed by the CEFEX Registration Committee to ensure impartiality and consistency. A CEFEX certification provides an independent recognition of a firm’s conformity to a defined Standard of Practice.

Certified firms voluntarily undertake annual audits by independent analysts to continually validate their adherence to the applicable standards. The annual CEFEX audit facilitates a culture of continuous improvement and increases the transparency and accountability of the management team.

In this time of increasing financial industry regulation, trust is paramount to firms that provide fiduciary services. Certified firms place their client’s interests first.  The certification process is intended to provide proof of integrity to investors and the stewards responsible for retirement plans, endowments foundations and other current and prospective clients.
