Cannon Financial Institute

Certified Wealth Strategist® Program


Cannon believes every client deserves sound advice and exceptional service. To nurture that belief Cannon created a holistic practice management program dedicated to better serve high net worth clients. The Certified Wealth Strategist® designation, established in 2007, provides a unique industry perspective on how to collaborate with your client and your client’s financial influencers.

The Certified Wealth Strategist® utilizes a blended learning approach that includes instructor-led training, 13 Wealth Management Issues study guides, online mastery exams, conversation skill builders and eLessons. The learning experience culminates with a Capstone Project: a written document demonstrating a sustainable framework which applies the new knowledge and skills to the practitioner’s business. The program provides the knowledge, the practice management formula, and the critical client interaction skills to create and build a dynamic Wealth Advisory practice that works effectively with complex client issues.
