About the RMA Certification
The RMA program focuses on unique insights and techniques for tackling client diagnostics, assessing retirement risks, and managing asset allocations as a client approaches retirement and beyond.
Focused on outcomes, not expectations, the RMA certification provides advisors with practical tools, techniques, and methodologies. The result is a set of knowledge and skills that can satisfy clients' retirement needs.
The RMA program is an advanced certificate program and pathway to certification that focuses on building custom retirement income plans to mitigate clients’ risks and to master the retirement planning advisory process, all within the increasing regulatory environment. RMA education equips certificants with the knowledge needed to speak the language of retirement-focused clients and teaches how to build a plan that includes the option of a safety-first approach— something a pure accumulation mindset does not address.
