Our Broker Dealer
What it Means to Be an Independent Broker/Dealer
Broker/dealers buy and sell investment products on behalf of investors who are clients of financial advisors affiliated with the firm. Because we are an independent broker/dealer, financial advisors affiliated with us work for themselves in their own offices located throughout the U.S. and are free to help clients choose suitable investment products to help them reach their personal financial goals. We function as the unseen back office that processes client transactions and supports advisors as they provide financial assistance to investors.
