Registered Financial Consultant (RFC)
The Registered Financial Consultant (RFC) is a professional designation awarded by the International Association of Registered Financial Consultants to those financial advisors who can meet the high standards of education, experience and integrity required of all its members. The IARFC holds the RFC designation to be different and perhaps more encompassing. However the IARFC does not assert that many other professional designations or their organization are inferior. The public is not served by divisive criticism, but rather by dedicated and well-prepared professionals. Our goal is to encourage advisor, with strong emphasis on the importance of continuing education.
