The RIA Digital Assets Council, headed by Ric Edelman, has changed its name to the Digital Assets Council of Financial Professionals.

“We’re receiving requests for help from every sector of the financial services industry,” Edelman, who founded the organization three years ago, said in a statement. “Our name change reflects our new broader charter to be of value to every company and all financial advisors.”

DACFP, according to Edelman, now serves as the premier digital assets educational resource for the entire financial planning industry, including broker-dealers, wirehouses, institutional investors, family offices, trust companies, banks, and insurance companies globally.

The company now serves all financial advisors, including those licensed by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority and insurance regulators.

“Digital assets continue to gain prominence in the marketplace,” added DACFP president Don Friedman. “Financial services organizations are struggling to determine how to offer clients new investment opportunities in this asset class and how to train their advisors. DACFP was created precisely for this purpose, and the demand for our services is huge.”

DACFP is the education partner for blockchain and digital assets for the Financial Planning Association, the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors, XY Planning Network, the Association of African American Financial Advisors, the Money Management Institute and the Investment Advisers Association.

DACFP offers the Certificate in Blockchain and Digital Assets, an 11-module online self-study program featuring 13 CE credits and a world-class faculty of experts in the blockchain, digital asset and financial advisory fields.
