To will is to select a goal, determine a course of action that will bring one to that goal, and then hold to that action till the goal is reached. The key is action."

Nvest is a CEFEX Investment Advisor



In 2017, Nvest undertook the rigorous process to become CEFEX-certified as an Investment Advisor. We strive everyday to excel in our fiduciary responsibilities and by obtaining the CEFEX certification, we continue to show our dedication to providing fiduciary services to our clients. CEFEX Investment Advisors adhere to a standard representing the best practices in their industry. The standards include specific criteria which have been substantiated by regulation or written in consultation with leading firms. CEFEX assessment process is based on the international standard, ISO 19011: Guideline for quality management system auditing. The assessment is evidence-based, and all work is reviewed by the CEFEX Registration Committee to ensure impartiality and consistency. A CEFEX-certified firm places its clients' interests first. They voluntarily undertake annual audits by independent expert analysts. This continually verifies their adherence to the applicable standard and is supplemental to oversight performed by regulators, or financial auditors. The CEFEX audit fosters a culture of continuous improvement within the firm and increases transparency and accountability of the management team.
