Eric Abowd and Steve Rose, partners and lead financial advisers at Abowd & Rose Financial Group, were recently awarded with the first nationally recognized mutual fund designation, Certified Fund Specialist, by the Institute of Business & Finance.

This graduate-level designation is conferred upon candidates who complete a 135-hour educational program and demonstrate mastery in the field.
