WHY JOIN SECURITIES AMERICA?
You need a company with technology that allows you to become more efficient, productive and profitable; technology that allows you to gain greater efficiency where it counts — with your clients. Our user-friendly integrated systems offer creative solutions to your business needs, delivered instantly to wherever you are and adjusting to meet your changing needs. To help facilitate your relationships with your clients, we offer Online Client Account Access and encrypted client email through Business Center Web Mail.
Award-Winning Practice Management Solutions
Securities America’s award-winning, forward-thinking coaching programs incorporate innovative techniques and exclusive tools proven to improve advisor satisfaction and profitability. Coaching has long been the cornerstone of our value proposition because, frankly, it works. Seventy percent of Securities America’s current million-dollar producers have advanced their business by engaging practice management through coaching, a study group or business consulting.
Acquisition, Succession & Continuity Planning Support
Financial advisors are dedicated to helping clients plan their financial futures, but sometimes they need help putting plans in place to ensure the smooth transitions of their own practices. Securities America recently introduced its Practice Transition Center, a first-of-its-kind library of videos and tools that help advisors understand and implement the process of buying or selling a practice.
Advisory & Wealth Management
We offer 400+ mutual fund wrap portfolios, more than any other independent broker-dealer, and 125+ separately managed account portfolios. Most recently, we’ve added Ladenburg’s proprietary money management programs to our Managed Opportunities platform. Advisors can manage the assets themselves, outsource to a third-party manager, or do a combination of both. Our Unified Managed Account was the first in the industry to allow separately managed accounts and mutual fund wraps in a single account – one set of paperwork, one registration and one 1099. Because we’re first to market with ideas like these, you can be first in your own market, giving you a significant edge over your competition.
Retirement Income Planning
NextPhase™ is Securities America’s industry-leading collection of programs, services, materials and education that advisors can leverage to effectively meet retirees’ income needs. As Baby Boomers enter the next phase of their lives, advisors need more than just a conceptual education designed to help these Boomer clients make their money last as long as they need. NextPhase provides an array of resources to help advisors manage clients’ income distribution needs. The resources include client-facing communications like marketing materials, risk assessments and documentation questionnaires, in addition to advisor resources like topic-specific white papers, strategy/product comparisons, calculators, forms, education and training information. Advisors want tangible tools to help meet these new challenges, and Securities America is leading the way.
At Securities America, good enough is never good enough. Through constant open communication with our advisors and assistants, and by putting ourselves in your shoes, we relentlessly pursue improvement to every facet of your experience. We measure key performance metrics to ensure we exceed the expectations of you, your staff and your clients. Many of our best technology and system enhancements were originally suggested by our advisors and assistants. Culture and service, though intangible, play a big part in a successful relationship with your broker-dealer. We invite you to visit our home office, meet our employees and experience for yourself what makes Securities America exceptional.
