The International Association of Registered Financial Consultants (IARFC) has developed a new consumer page on its website, http://www.iarfc.org, that highlights radio programs and podcasts produced by members. These broadcasts contain financial information important to the public pertaining to topics that affect the financial direction of their future.
According to an Aug. 8 press release, members of the IARFC who host programs on these platforms have to excel in many areas to achieve the Association designations and credentials. Whether a Registered Financial Consultant (RFC®) or the newly accredited Master Registered Financial Consultant (MRFC), these consultants meet strict requirements for membership and adhere to an exacting Code of Ethics.
The programs are diverse, but they all approach content with the same concern for stability and success of their clients and consumers as a whole. Complicated concepts are tackled in ways that the consumer will appreciate, find relatable, and can apply to their current budget or retirement forecasting.
“Understanding financial trends can be daunting for the consumer,” admits Michael Markey, MRFC and IARFC Board Member. “That is why I partner with my wife Vanessa on our radio program Fireproof Your Retirement. She says things differently than I do. She’s more down to earth, while I’m more technical. It is our yin/yang approach to money issues. It works for us and is entertaining to the audience at the same time.”
Along with listening to the programs, consumers can access IARFC members by utilizing the “Find a Consultant” feature on the website. Additionally, there is background information on the website about the IARFC, how they validate their Association members and what their designations and credentials represent.
“With so many individuals giving out financial information these days, it is good to know that our members have the education, experience and integrity that the public needs to feel confident,” confirms IARFC Chairman and CEO, H. Stephen Bailey, MRFC. “Our professionals address what is important and relevant to client’s financial security in consumer-friendly, fun, broadcasts – all geared toward protecting a client’s wealth and decreasing their vulnerability to financial disasters.”
