International Association of Registered Financial Consultants

The IARFC® is a non-profit association of proven financial professionals formed to foster public confidence in the financial services profession and whose members adhere to the IARFC Code of Ethics.

Founded in 1984, the IARFC’s mission is to recognize world class financial consultants and empower them to make a transformational difference in the financial lives of the families and communities they serve.

IARFC designations / credential:

Connect to a designation / credential.

Consumers engage the guidance of a financial consultant to achieve financial security and independence. A professional with education, experience, and an ethical background is important to someone who is looking for sound financial advice.

RFA/RFC designation / MRFC credential holders are qualified and trained consultants who meet a high level of competency. Each designation or credential addresses a specific level of a consultant’s background and experiences.


Why does someone need a financial consultant?

The IARFC is committed to the overall process of financial consulting and wants the public to understand the value and benefits of engaging a professional. A financial consultant guides the financial process: goal identification, data organization, needs analysis review, problem identification, recommendations, and plan implementation. Financial consultants help their clients to save, spend, invest, insure, and plan wisely for the future.
