If the world of investment advisors feels like alphabet soup to you, you are not alone
You’ve seen the strings of letters that show up after investment advisors’ names—CFP, CLU, ChFC, CLTC, XYZ. Okay, we made that last one up. With the aggressive deregulation of financial markets over the last several decades, many companies—including banks and insurance companies—have hung out shingles as investment companies, despite the fact that investing has never been their specialty. Not one of those certifications above indicates specific education or training in making buy and sell decisions on investments. So…buyer beware.
If you need an investor, you should hire an investor. Not an accountant or a broker or a planner or a sales person. Hire an investor.
— Jack McGowan, Two Point founder and CEO
The Chartered Financial Analyst®
The Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation is the one certification that indicates expertise in making investment decisions. It is globally considered to be the premier investment management designation in the financial industry. It requires at minimum three years of independent study and board exams. Pass rates for each exam are less than 50% and only one in five candidates will pass all three. Two Point Capital Management founder and CEO Jack McGowan earned his CFA designation in 1989 and has served as President and Board member of his local chapter of the CFA Society.
Jack was educated as an economist, and before launching Two Point Capital Management in 2004, worked for several of the leading investment management firms in the Rochester area.
