Richard Bernstein Advisors LLC

Richard Bernstein is the chief executive officer and chief investment officer of Richard Bernstein Advisors LLC, which he founded in 2009. The firm utilizes a unique top-down approach to investing, focusing on macro trends rather than individual stock selection. He has more than 30 years’ experience on Wall Street, most recently as the chief investment strategist at Merrill Lynch & Co., which he joined in 1988. Before that, he held positions at E.F. Hutton and Chase Econometrics/IDC. An expert on equity, style, and asset allocation, Mr. Bernstein was voted to Institutional Investor magazine’s annual All-America Research Team 18 times and is one of 50 analysts inducted into the Institutional Investor Hall of Fame. He was twice-named to Fortune magazine’s All-Star Analysts and to Smart Money magazine’s Power 30, and was a member of Registered Rep’s Ten to Watch for 2012. His book Style Investing: Unique Insight into Equity Management is widely viewed as the seminal book on style-oriented investment strategies. He donates the profits from that and his other book, Navigate the Noise: Investing in the New Age of Media and Hype, to charity. Mr. Bernstein is chair of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation endowment’s investment committee (~$2 billion) and serves on the Hamilton College endowment’s investment committee (~$900 million); he is a trustee of both institutions.

He earned an MBA in finance, with Beta Gamma Sigma distinction, from New York University, and a B.A. in economics from Hamilton College.

Open Architecture 2020 Group

Before co-founding The Open Architecture 2020 Group, a pro bono retirement advice think tank in 2013 made up of financial industry volunteers, Mark Chamberlain spent more than 20 years learning from the strategic successes and shortsighted mistakes of different business leaders in both the private client and institutional financial services arenas. In 2000, he gave the first of what would become many presentations at IMCA, highlighting what it would take to begin the integration of indexing into the mainstream investment consulting process. In his role as one of the original iShares launch pioneers at Barclays Global Investors, Mr. Chamberlain had a clear view of the challenges to overcome in both consultant thinking and home office infrastructures. From 2000-2009, he led teams at BGI who developed a grass roots movement with many Certified Investment Management Analyst® (CIMA®) certification holders in the field, including IMCA members Scott Thayer, Jim Pupillo, and Norm Nabhan. The iShares business grew slowly at first, and then assets increased more quickly than at any other firm in history. After 2009, a new challenge presented itself in the form of a much-needed paradigm shift for advising individuals on the decumulation phase of their lives. Once again, reconciling the differences between private client and institutional best practices became a logical step, and an advisor-led grass roots effort was again needed to overcome industry inertia. The Open Architecture 2020 Group's papers are now self-published on their website where objectivity is preserved by having no sales, sponsors, or revenues of any kind. Keeping average Americans in focus, the intention is for new solutions to become pragmatic enough for use with every retiree, regardless of net worth.  Chamberlain attended Occidental College, and is a former CIMA certificant who served on past IMCA Ethics and Regional Conference Committees.

Continuing Education (CE) Credit

IMCA is excited to offer CIMA®, CIMC®, CPWA®, and CFP® certificants a convenient and hassle-free method of reporting continuing education credit earned at IMCA conferences through our radio frequency identification (RFID) system.

Your attendance at individual conference sessions is automatically recorded using RFID technology as you enter each session. Be sure to wear your conference badge at all times to ensure that you are properly credited for the sessions you attend. You will not be able to earn or report CE credit to IMCA, the CFP Board of Standards, or other leading certification bodies without this proof of attendance.

IMCA Certification (CIMA, CIMC, CPWA)—This program will provide up to fifteen (15) hours of live and online CE credit, including one (1) hour of ethics CE credit. CE hours for IMCA credit can be earned in two ways:

  • Up to 12 hours can be earned by attending sessions during the conference. Your attendance at individual conference sessions is automatically recorded using RFID technology as you enter each session. Be sure to wear your conference badge at all times to ensure that you are properly credited for the sessions you attend. 
  • Up to three hours can be earned by watching recorded “Bonus CE” sessions after the conference. As an attendee benefit, IMCA will offer attendees three hours of “Bonus CE.” Log in to MyIMCA seven to 10 days after the conference and go to “My Webinars and Videos” to access the videos. You must watch at least 50 minutes of each archived video on your computer to earn CE credit for that program.

IMCA will upload all CE earned directly to your MyIMCA record within two weeks of the activity. The program is subject to change, and due to audio-visual challenges and speaker permissions, we may not be able to indicate which sessions will be offered as “Bonus CE” programs. This may affect the type and total number of hours delivered.

CFP® Certification— This program has been accepted for up to 9.5 hours of CFP continuing education. IMCA will report your attendance at individual conference sessions to the CFP Board on your behalf. Note that you must complete the following steps:

  • Provide your CFP ID to IMCA. Enter your CFP ID in My IMCA in the “Update my demographics information” section. You also may enter your CFP ID when you register for a conference.
  • Wear your conference badge at all times so your attendance at individual sessions is recorded using RFID technology.
  • IMCA will report the sessions you attend directly to the CFP Board. The CFP Board will notify you when this occurs.

Please note that IMCA is not able to report to the CFP Board on your behalf if we do not have an accurate CFP ID. Please check your My IMCA account to ensure that your CFP ID is in our database and is accurate. IMCA will report the sessions you attend directly to the CFP Board. The CFP Board will notify you when this occurs.

NASBA CPE Credit—IMCA is registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy as a sponsor of CE on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors (ID 106054). State boards of accountancy have final authority about the acceptance of individual courses. Individuals are responsible for submitting any necessary paperwork and/or fees to their state boards. Upon request, IMCA will provide a certificate of attendance after the conference.

Other certifications/designations—IMCA does not submit programs to state insurance departments and bar associations. Individuals are responsible for submitting any necessary paperwork and/or fees to their state boards. Upon request, IMCA will provide a certificate of attendance after the conference.
