Many Wall Street brokerages and independent broker dealers are undergoing tremendous change. The wirehouses continue to cut payouts and increase account minimums, while multiple mergers are consolidating the independent broker dealer landscape. The DOL’s Fiduciary Standard. Many of the Insurance owned broker dealers are increasing production requirements and forcing proprietary sales. FINRA has become more over-bearing with increased rules and regulations. Improved technology and wealth management platforms are improving the independent broker-dealer model.
Financial Advisors who want to change firms, usually don’t have the background, knowledge, or time to have numerous discussions with many broker dealers. Your decision to find your next broker dealer is an important one. You will want your next broker dealer to fit your practice, and that’s where we add value-in sorting through all of the firms and identifying the ones to fit your needs and personality.
We work closely with many broker dealers, where we know the key decision makers well. We will familiarize you with these firms so that you can understand their culture, products, platforms, and introduce you to their key executives. We will act as your “agent” to negotiate the best deal possible.
No matter how much or type of business you do, we want to work for you! Many of our competitors only focus on the large producers, we want to work with financial advisors of all backgrounds, product mixes and production levels.
We will find you the best broker dealer that matches your needs. Financial Advisor Placement Services helps financial advisors sift through all of the options and questions involved in switching firms. We are experts in the broker dealer market. The people at Financial Advisor Placement Services have been working with and developing relationships with independent, regional and national broker dealers since 2007. We understand the clearing platforms and product offerings and understand the firm’s philosophy, so that we find the best broker dealer to suit your needs.
Our initial conversation will have one goal: to learn about your practice, your clients, and your requirements in a new broker dealer. We will start with our list of over 70 quality broker dealers. We will then create a short list of broker dealers to recommend for your consideration. Based on your initial feedback, we will then have initial, confidential conversations with these firms to see if there may be a good fit. Then next step is to arrange phone conversations with these broker dealers. We then narrow the list down to a hand full of firms and set up face to face meetings either at the home office or near the candidate’s location, whatever is most convenient for the candidate. With the firms that are of most interest, we will work with the firms to get competitive offers together and present them to the candidate.
