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 holds the candidate and Charter holder to a much higher standard of civil and criminal penalty for non-fiduciary acts.
The CFP® 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.
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.
