Like advisors across the country, you might be considering which independent broker dealer would be a good fit for you and your practice. Highly independent "Joe" is representative of many advisors who are looking for the right balance between solid business, compliance support, and the comfort of a family-style culture.
Are you a "Blue Chip Advisor"? Is there correlation between the defining characteristics of these mammoth organizations and our firms? We believe that the parallels abound between blue chip companies and the best-of-the-best advisors and, with that in mind, examine the traits to emulate as you prepare for the future.
Securities Service Network is a competitive independent broker dealer and Registered Investment Advisor (SSNAI) with one of the highest payouts in the industry. We genuinely care about the success of each and every one of our customers and take a personal interest in the success of their independent businesses.
