SARASOTA, FL (May 30, 2023) – Kimberly Evener, Director of Client Services for Forza Wealth Management, was recently awarded the Certified Trust & Fiduciary Advisor (CTFA) professional certification from the American Bankers Association (ABA).

The CTFA exam covers many areas, including fiduciary and trust activities, financial planning, tax law and planning, investment management, and ethics. The CTFA certification also requires individuals to meet professional continuing education and development requirements.
