Other Considerations

Ethical Professional Conduct

The CRI Charter Certification Program requires disclosure of ethical professional conduct initially by a CRI Candidate and annually by a CRI Charter holder. This act of ethical professional conduct exposes the candidate and Charter holder to a much higher standard of civil and criminal penalty for non-fiduciary acts. The CFA Charter, CFP Charter, CAI Certificate, MAI and CPM programs have similar ethical professional conduct requirements. However, many other existing programs and designations do not examine a designees’ ethical professional conduct or require annual re-certification of his or her continued ethical professional conduct.

Society Goal

The CRI Society’s goal is strictly for the public good: to certify Charter holders as fiduciary participants in the global real estate investment decision-making, implementation, and advisory industries.
