Why Consider an Established Network

Many advisors find independence easier as part of an established firm. You are able to enjoy true independence while benefiting from logistical support, lower startup costs, shared overhead and other economies of scale. By sharing the knowledge of those who’ve already made their move, your transition can likely be more smooth and efficient.

By joining an established network you gain:

  • Immediate scale and synergies that come from being part of a larger group, including the opportunity to network or share ideas with management and peers
  • Clout of a larger firm in negotiating broker/dealer services, vendor pricing considerations and more
  • Hands-on support, guidance and mentoring provided to advisors who are new to independence
  • Neutral, objective compliance oversight
  • Broad investment platform with alternative investment access and expertise
  • Knowledge that compliance requirements are current and up to date at all times
  • Business continuity and succession planning
  • Access to conferences, training, networking, education and peer insight
