The Self-Assessment of Fiduciary Excellence™ (SAFE™) is a checklist for investment advisors, managers and stewards to conduct a quick and thorough self-evaluation of how well they meet the defined global fiduciary standards of excellence.
Each question in the SAFE is based on one or more of the Prudent Practices® that have been fully substantiated by legislation, case law and regulatory opinion letters by well-known legal experts such as Fred Reish of Drinker Biddle.
This SAFE is intended to serve as a Level I Verification. A Level II Verification, known as a Consultant’s Assessment of Fiduciary Excellence™ (CAFE™), provides a more detailed analysis. A Level III Verification, or “Certification,” is the formal process of verifying that an investment professional meets the defined global standards of excellence defined by Fi360 and the Centre for Fiduciary Excellence® (CEFEX®).
