"Having the CES designation sets me apart from other advisors and differentiates me from being "just another financial sales guy." People see me as an estate planner in addition to being a financial advisor, and that has helped us get in front of more people than we had in the past."
- Randy

"The Certified Annuity Specialist course material is excellent. It gives me the foundation to really separate myself from the other advisors "selling" annuities. The knowledge gained and the resources made available from this course are an eye-opener to the many ways annuities can be used to help my clients meet their goals with this unique and flexible tool."
