What is an Accredited Investment Fiduciary (AIF) ®?

The AIF® designation is a mark of distinction, which demonstrates a commitment to high standards of fiduciary excellence. AIF® designees have a reputation in the industry for their ability to implement a prudent process into their own investment practices, as well as being able to assist others in implementing proper policies and procedures.

Symbio advisors and principals, Shari Miller and G. Michael Dorvillier have both earned this important mark of distinction among retirement plan advisors.
