Accredited Asset Management Specialist - AAMS
A professional designation awarded by the College for Financial Planning to financial professionals who successfully complete a self-study program, pass an exam and agree to comply with a code of ethics. Successful applicants earn the right to use the AAMS designation with their names for two years, which can improve job opportunities, professional reputation and pay. Every two years, AAMS professionals must complete 16 hours of continuing education and pay a fee to continue using the designation.

The self-study program covers the asset management process; investors, policy and change; risk, return and investment performance; asset allocation and selection; investment strategies; taxation of investment products; investment opportunities for individual retirement; investment considerations for small business owners; executive compensation and benefit plans; insurance products for investment clients; estate planning; and regulatory and ethical issues. Individuals with the AAMS designation may work as financial advisors, registered investment advisors, registered representatives, client relationship managers, financial consultants or investment advisors.
