“With a plethora of financial certifications to choose from it is sometimes hard to make the right decision on which training to attend. What separates our training from others is focusing on practical application of managing a fixed income portfolio. We look at some of the latest technology and help industry professionals think outside the box when it comes to identifying, measuring, and mitigating risk. Helping them avoid buying the wrong investment at the highest price is what CFO's love about our training. This is the only training that provides online tools in class to look up CUSIP's and pricing history and interest rate risk.
When it comes to certifications, many of them require acquiring knowledge, passing a test and then some “market experience”. But we have found this is not a true test of a good portfolio manager, good steward or a good fiduciary. Education and industry knowledge is imperative to start with, but without the right disciplines it is impossible to become a great fixed income portfolio steward. Think of it like playing a musical instrument. There is education, knowledge, the teacher that will put you on the right path however, it is the practice that makes a great musician. Without an accountability partner making you practice, encouraging you and helping you it is difficult if not impossible to get to the next level. A few simple disciplines practiced daily will lead to great success and that’s what we do. Helping investors get to the next level is our mission.” – Jim Koetting, PFITR CEO.
