While it is true that boutique broker-dealers often cater directly to a specialty need for advisors, if that is all that the IBD can offer an advisor efficiently, it may not be the best place for you. A mid-size independent IBD like Securities America can offer a lot more value to advisors than most boutique IBDs. It may be that you or your clients’ specialty needs can be met through Securities America too. Don’t assume that what your boutique broker-dealer offers cannot be met by a more full-service, larger firm like Securities America.
Securities America strongly believes that the independent financial advisor business model is the one that puts both the clients’ and the advisor’s interests into harmony. We believe an independent financial advisor can provide fair and objective counsel to clients without the unnecessary pressure of sales goals or proprietary product restrictions. In the end, an independent financial advisor’s clients can be confident that their financial goals are being appropriately placed in the center of the planning and investing process.

Considerations for Narrowing Down Your Broker-Dealer Options
In your search for the ideal broker-dealer partner, you should carefully consider what type of affiliation will provide the best fit not only for where your business is NOW, but more importantly, where you want your business to GO. Does the potential IBD have the programs and personnel in place to provide the type of support you need (now and looking forward)? Can the potential IBD help you provide a better client experience? How will the potential IBD make doing business easier or better?
