HOYLECOHEN TEAM CREDENTIALS
More than Letters
HoyleCohen clients have access to a team of professionals with extensive industry experience. In addition to the rigorous standards of conduct we adhere to as fiduciaries, the large majority of our professional team members maintain industry-recognized accreditations that reinforce our commitment to the highest levels of knowledge, integrity and service.
Credentials you won’t find everywhere. As of 2018, only 20% of financial advisors have the Certified Financial Planner® (CFP®) designation. At HoyleCohen, not only do our Advisors and other staff members hold the CFP® designation, but many other members of our team hold credentials relevant to their roles as well.
A description of relevant HoyleCohen credentials and why each is important follows.
