Three professional designations that help John and Katie serve you
There are good reasons for working with a Certified Investment Management Analyst, Certified Financial Planner™ and Wealth Management Specialist.


Why work with a Certified Investment Management Analyst©?
Certified Investment Management Analysts© (CIMA©) are dedicated to elevating their practice through education, experience, examination and the highest standards of ethics. CIMA© professionals have the advanced investment management knowledge necessary to fully serve affluent clients.

They understand the financial complexities and risks that come with being in a high tax bracket, are well-versed in modern concepts of investment advice, and are educated to understand how your individual investments work together. They apply this knowledge to analyze and select the investments that make the most sense for your personal situation.

Earning a CIMA© designation requires three years of experience in investment management consulting and completion of the demanding educational program put forth by the CIMA© board. To maintain this designation, CIMA© professionals must adhere to a rigorous code of professional responsibility and complete 40 hours of continuing education every two years.

These skills, along with a commitment to advanced education, help enable them to provide you with the level of investment guidance you not only need, but deserve.


Why work with a Certified Financial Planner™?

Katie Parkins has attained the prestigious CFP® certification, one of the most respected financial planning credentials among consumers and the recognized standard of excellence in personal financial planning. A financial advisor who has been awarded the Certified Financial Planner™ professional certification has demonstrated skill in analyzing and developing personal long-term financial strategies, and has completed hundreds of hours of rigorous financial planning courses. Katie Parkins adheres to the CFP Board’s code of ethics for integrity, objectivity, competence, fairness, confidentiality, professionalism and diligence.
