Designation earned

PLATTSBURGH — Andrew Lomanto, a financial consultant for Community Bank’s Wealth Management Group Plattsburgh office, has been awarded the Accredited Investment Fiduciary (AIF) designation from the Center for Fiduciary Studies, a standards-setting body.

The designation signifies specialized knowledge of fiduciary responsibility and the ability to implement policies and procedures that meet a defined standard of care. The fiduciary standard is intended to ensure that individuals charged with a role in managing other peoples’ money follow prudent investment practices and are therefore worthy of the trust placed in them.

The designation is the culmination of a rigorous training program, which includes a comprehensive, closed-book final examination under the supervision of a proctor, and agreement to abide by the Code of Ethics. On an ongoing basis, designees are required to complete continuing education to maintain the AIF designation.
