NFP’s Retirement Division Earns CEFEX Certification for Fiduciary Excellence Sixth Year in a Row
Date:8/23/2017

CEFEX, the Centre for Fiduciary Excellence, LLC, has once again certified NFP’s Retirement division as adhering to the standards representing best practices in the retirement plan industry. The independent CEFEX Investment Advisor certification demonstrates fiduciary excellence based on a best practice standard and helps to verify that NFP’s retirement division focuses on putting clients’ interests first and acting in its clients’ best interests.

“Receiving this honor for the sixth year in a row demonstrates our unwavering commitment to putting NFP’s clients first,” said CEO of NFP, Doug Hammond. “We believe this certification is a reflection of the outstanding work of our dedicated advisors and client support staff, further bolstering trust in our organization.”

CEFEX performs annual audits by independent fiduciary experts to verify firms’ adherence to the fiduciary standard. These audits are supplemental to the oversight performed by most financial regulators. The assessment is evidence-based and includes a document review, client file sampling, on-site visits, a background check and interviews with senior representatives at the firm. The assessment requires advisory firms and their advisors to:

  •     Know standards, laws and trust provisions
  •     Diversify assets for the specific risk/return profile of the client
  •     Prepare an investment policy statement
  •     Use prudent experts and document due diligence
  •     Control and account for investment expenses
  •     Monitor the activities of prudent experts
  •     Avoid prohibited transactions and avoid or manage conflicts of interest in favor of the client

The CEFEX Certification shows NFP’s dedication to:

  •     Increased efficiency by developing processes that maximize quality and productivity
  •     Enhanced decision-making by utilizing a factual approach that facilitates information-gathering and decision-making based on market data
  •     Improving service provider relationships that result in strong adherence to best practices for documentation, and monitoring and ensuring that the highest quality investments are used in retirement plans
  •     Avoiding conflicts of interest by adhering to a high fiduciary standard and prudent practices that put plan sponsors and plan participants’ interests above our own
