St. Louis, MO- Krilogy Financial®, a wealth management firm with multiple locations in the St. Louis area, is pleased to announce that Financial Advisor Andrew Forrester has earned his CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation from the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards. Forrester is the tenth member of the Krilogy team of advisors to receive this designation.
With a background as an educator, Forrester joined Krilogy in 2014, focusing on educating clients and providing them with the information needed to make wise financial decisions. His patience, communication style, and attention to detail have led him to become a trusted resource for his clients.
“The Krilogy team is proud to congratulate Drew on this remarkable accomplishment,” said Kent Skornia, President and CEO. “Since joining the firm, he has demonstrated his commitment to hard work and doing what it takes to help clients achieve their goals. Pursuing and earning the CFP® designation is an example of that commitment.”
The CFP® marks identify those individuals who have met the rigorous experience and ethical requirements of the CFP® Board, have successfully completed financial planning coursework and have passed the CFP® Certification Examination covering the following areas: the financial planning process, risk management, investments, tax planning and management, retirement and employee benefits, and estate planning. CFP® professionals also agree to meet ongoing continuing education requirements and to uphold CFP® Board’s Code of Ethics and Professional Responsibility, Rules of Conduct and Financial Planning Practice Standards.
“I always strive to become a better advisor for my clients and serve them with the level of knowledge and professionalism needed to address their sophisticated wealth management needs,” said Forrester. “There are many ‘advisors’ out there and it can be challenging to know who to turn to. I believe this designation provides some objective criteria for which to assess an advisor’s level of knowledge and ability to assist others with their wealth management needs.”
