Certified Investment Management Analyst® (CIMA®) Certification
Certified Investment Management Analysts® (CIMA®) are dedicated to elevating their practice through education, experience, examination and the highest standards of ethics. CIMA® professionals have the advanced investment management knowledge necessary to truly – fully – serve affluent clients, and they use that in-depth knowledge to analyze and hand-select the investment products that make the most sense for your circumstances. Earning a CIMA® designation requires three years of broad experience in investment management consulting and completion of the demanding educational program put forth by the CIMA® board. To maintain this designation, CIMA® professionals are required to adhere to a rigorous code of professional responsibility and complete 40 hours of continuing education every two years.

Certified Financial Planner™ (CFP®) Certification

Today more than ever, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professionals are an essential resource. From budgeting, to planning for retirement, to saving for education, to managing your taxes and your insurance coverage, “finances” doesn’t mean just one thing for most Americans — and “financial planning” means much more than just investing. Bringing all the pieces of your financial life together is a challenging task.

Although many professionals may call themselves “financial planners,” CFP® professionals have completed extensive training and experience requirements and are held to rigorous ethical standards. They understand the complexities of the changing financial climate and know how to make recommendations in your best interest.

Community Involvement

Community Involvement

Our team members make meaningful contributions of time and money to several charitable organizations. The contributions have been made in several areas of need including: K -12 education, hunger relief, children's cancer, excellence in Oregon higher education, and the development of clean energy.

Josh Bratt has served as a member of the Oregon Environment Council, he is a co-founder and board member of Power Oregon.
