Unrivaled Paperless On-Boarding for New Advisors
Joining Securities America is a simpler, faster on-boarding process thanks to a completely paperless online system that replaces ink signatures and fingerprints with electronic versions. Securities America’s system pulls information from the company’s internal databases as well as FINRA’s CRD application to prepopulate forms for advisors to review online and correct or confirm. A built-in tracking feature provides the status of each document, avoiding redundancies or overlap between Securities America staff and the prospective advisor.
With dynamic questioning, the answers to certain questions trigger which additional questions the prospective advisor must complete. The system also performs automatic completion checks to ensure the advisor hasn’t missed or skipped a response. The automated on-boarding system is just the latest addition to a more comprehensive paperless office solution promoted by Securities America over the past several years.
