Put our team to work for you

As a busy advisor, you’re juggling it all. But we think you should be able to take off all those hats and wear just one: CEO.

From marketing and operations to technology and portfolio management, you’ll get a whole team of knowledgeable experts dedicated to getting your firm to the next level.

Choose Your Own Path

One of the things that makes us different from other firms? You choose how you want to work with us!

Select one of two paths:

Path #1:

Investment Adviser Representative (IAR)

Working with us as an IAR is like having a whole business in a box! It’s a great option for advisors who want to get up and running quickly or advisors who want to run a streamlined business without a lot of overhead.

Path #2:

Third-Party Registered Investment Advisor (TPRIA)

Want a little more flexibility with how you run your business? As a third-party RIA, you maintain complete control of how you operate your firm while gaining access to our full suite of investment and marketing solutions.

Support and Strategies You Need – All in One Place

From marketing and technology to operations and portfolio management, you can select the right level of support for your firm. It’s your business — and we’re here to provide the services you need when you need them.


Holistic Planning Strategies

When you work with us, you’ll get access to our complete suite of life, annuity, Medicare and investment options – letting you run your business as efficiently and effectively as possible.

Done-For-You Marketing

Engage and educate future and current clients with our full range of turnkey commentaries, reports and email campaigns. Plus you’ll also get access to our full suite of marketing materials, including seminars and radio, TV and digital campaigns customized for your unique brand.

Operational Support

Choose as much or as little back-office support from us as you need. Our experienced team can help you tackle day-to-day tasks related to compliance, technology, trading, planning and billing. Plus, we make the transition process easy by handling the whole transition process from start to finish for you!

Professional Development

Through our elite coaching and training programs, you’ll learn from industry leaders who have successfully scaled their businesses and want to show you how to do the same. You’ll also have access to live and virtual events covering the best practices in investment management, financial planning, marketing, compliance and other practice-related topics.
