Our independent business model ensures we have the autonomy and discretion to put you at the center of all investment strategies and business decisions. Just as we stand behind you to help you pursue your financial dreams, we have teams standing behind us and supporting our business. These firms also strengthen our relationship with you by providing the resources we need to better serve you. We think it’s important for you to know who these partners are and why we have chosen to work with them.

Our Broker-Dealer: Cetera Financial Specialists

We are affiliated with Cetera Financial Specialists, one of the premier broker-dealers in the industry. As our broker-dealer, they are responsible for executing trades on your behalf. Like all broker-dealers, they must undergo regular auditing, and are required to meet specific net capital requirements to ensure it can meet its obligations to investors like you.

But their support for our relationship goes well beyond its function as trade executor. Our affiliation means that we are not held to a sales quota or tied to selling only proprietary products. We have the independence and freedom to recommend the financial solutions that best suit your needs, ensuring your objectives are what drive all decisions, while Cetera Financial Specialists’ network of people and resources help us pursue your unique goals and vision for the future.

Their Parent Company: Cetera Financial Group

Cetera Financial Specialists is part of the family of independently managed firms of Cetera Financial Group (Cetera). For the past 30 years, Cetera’s family of companies has grown to manage over $110 billion in client assets, delivering award-winning* advisory products and solutions and sophisticated trading and technology platforms to us and other advisors across all 50 states. You can be confident that their tools, technology and support help make us more effective in our relationship with you.

Cetera Financial Group is the cornerstone of the retail advice division of RCS Capital Corporation, a publicly traded company (NYSE: RCAP) focused on serving the needs of investors with best-in-class solutions.

Our Custodians: Charles Schwab and Cetera Investment Services

While a broker-dealer helps supervise and facilitate the trading that converts your cash into invested assets, those assets are actually held by a custodian. Cetera Financial Specialists works with two custodians. Cetera Investment Services LLC custodies individual retirement accounts (IRAs). Charles Schwab LLC custodies brokerage accounts, including the brokerage accounts within IRAs.

Charles Schwab is a subsidiary of the Bank of New York Mellon Corporation, which is the nation’s oldest continuously operating bank and one of the world’s leading providers of securities services. Cetera Investment Services is an affiliate of Cetera Financial Specialists, providing brokerage and other services to its own clients in addition to providing IRA custodial services to Cetera Financial Specialists’ clients. Both Charles Schwab and Cetera Investment Services have to meet certain net capital requirements and are subject to regular audits, both internally and by independent firms, to ensure the appropriate handling, segregation and protection of investors’ assets.
