Independence Means Greater Freedom
Financial Advice Focused on Your Goals
In a profession based on objective advice, true independence offers many choices intended to benefit you, the client. Your choice of an independent financial professional is the first step in receiving recommendations with guidance that's based on your needs and goals.
What Our Independence Means for You
Objective advice on achieving your financial goals may be best delivered by an independent financial professional. We’re not employees of an investment or financial services firm—we are independent business owners. We have the freedom to structure our business in a manner we believe best serves you.
Why We Partner with an Independent Broker/Dealer and Registered Investment Adviser
There are many types of firms for us to consider when affiliating with a broker/dealer and registered investment adviser. You may be familiar with broker/dealers that are subsidiaries of conglomerates, such as banks, investment banks, and investment companies. Independent broker/dealers are different from such firms because they generally do not underwrite securities, they do not create research, and they do not engage in investment banking. An independent broker/dealer allows financial professionals to offer nonproprietary products, such as mutual funds or life insurance, from a wide variety of companies. We have chosen to work with an independent broker/dealer and registered investment adviser to offer you impartial investment advice compensated in the form of fees, commissions, or both.
