The Advantages of Independence

One-third of today’s break-away advisors choose independence. When you look at the numbers, this choice makes a lot of sense. Independent advisors continue to lead the industry in asset growth, number of new advisors, and earnings potential 1. Independence also offers advantages in allowing advisors to choose their own business model, offer objective and unbiased advice to their clients, and increase their profitability potential.
