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.

Community Bank’s Wealth Management Group delivers services for the Trust, Brokerage, Investment Management and Insurance units of Community Bank System Inc. and Nottingham Advisors, an investment management and advisory firm.
