JD Kath Earns CSRIC Designation

Kath acquires first major financial credential dedicated to sustainable, responsible, and impact (SRI) investments.

Rockville, MD, June 24, 2019 — Bronfman Rothschild, an independent investment advisor based in Rockville, Maryland, has announced that Senior Wealth Advisor JD Kath has earned the Chartered SRI Counselor (CSRIC)™ designation after completing comprehensive coursework from the College for Financial Planning. Kath joins an elite group of advisors who are trained to work with sustainable, responsible, and impact (SRI) investments.

The CSRIC™ program provides advisors with foundational knowledge of the history, trends, portfolio construction principles, fiduciary responsibilities, and best practices for SRI investments. The course was developed in partnership with US SIF: The Forum for Sustainable and Responsible Investment – the leading voice advancing SRI investing across all asset classes in the United States.

“As responsible investing continues to gain momentum, JD‘s initiative and dedication in earning this timely designation will deepen Bronfman Rothschild’s SRI knowledge, allowing our collaborative firm to better serve any of our clients who are specifically interested in ESG or impact investing,” said Mike LaMena, Chief Executive Officer of Bronfman Rothschild.

To receive the CSRIC™ designation, Kath completed 135 hours of coursework and related activities, along with passing an extensive final examination.

Kath has been with Bronfman Rothschild since 2017. With over eight years of experience as a financial advisor, he focuses on high net worth investors, family foundations and business owners. He also leads Bronfman Rothschild’s employee giving fund, which allows the employees to set aside pre-tax dollars towards their favorite charities and receive a match from the firm.
