Family Enterprise Advisor (FEA) Designation
Become a designated Family Enterprise Advisor (FEA)
Families are becoming more discerning about the advisors they bring into their fold. The FEA™ designation will reinforce your standing and expertise in this growing sector of the business world and help you bring family focused and thoughtful solutions to the family table.
Having those three letters after my name is an additional boost, I think, reputationally.
