The Master Registered Financial Consultant Certification Program welcomes its newest member Robert D. Lawson, MRFC of Barrington Financial Consulting Group to the Board of Directors.

Mr. Robert Lawson has over 35 years of financial experience in securities, investments, insurance, and commodities and in a professional capacity as a financial advisor, investment fiduciary, supervisor, and managing principal. He serves as the President of Barrington Financial Consulting Group, Inc. and the President and Chief Investment Officer of Barrington Capital Management, Inc., a Registered Investment Advisory Firm and Insurance Agency that he established in 1988.

Per Lawson…“As a longtime member of the IARFC as a Registered Financial Consultant (RFC®) since 1997, and a newly credentialed Master Registered Financial Consultant (MRFC) since 2018, I am truly honored and privileged to have the opportunity to join the MRFC Board. I am looking forward to being a valued MRFC Board Member to advance the mission of this prestigious organization.”

As a Securities & Insurance Expert Witness and Litigation Support Consultant, Mr. Lawson is retained by both claimants and respondents for FINRA arbitrations, mediations, and court settings. Retaining counsel is supported by extensive research, expert witness reports and testimony, and decades of industry experience.

Continues Lawson.... “As the current Membership Chair of the Minnesota State Bar ADR Section, Board Member of the Securities Experts Roundtable (“SER”) and a FINRA Arbitration Chair and Mediator, I believe I am well-positioned to provide an immediate and positive impact for MRFC. I look forward to contributing towards the long-term success of our organization and its members.”

Accredited in 2018 by the National Commission of Certifying Agencies (NCCA), the MRFC Board operates independently from the IARFC to establish and uphold high standards of competence for the MRFC Certification Program and its credentialed holders. The mission of the Board is to provide an ongoing benefit to the general public by granting and recertifying the MRFC credential and upholding the credential as a standard of excellence of ethical, valued, competent and client-focused financial consultants.
