The Employee Advisor’s “Gut Check”
Have you had that “feeling in your gut” that says, “I’m not sure that where I am is allowing me to serve my clients best?” Many advisors get stuck at this point, uncertain of how to qualify whether the feeling has any basis in reality. Drawing from our decades of experience in working with advisors just like you, we’ve created the “Employee Advisor’s Gut Check” tool. With it, you’ll be armed with the right criteria by which to evaluate your current firm, as well as any others you may be considering.
The Independent Advisor’s “Gut Check”
Many advisors affiliated with broker dealers find themselves at a point in their careers when they question whether where they are is indeed the right place to best serve their clients. It’s at that same point when you realize that what got you “here” may not get you “there”. That’s why we created the “Gut Check for Advisors at Independent Broker Dealers”—to provide you with benchmarks to evaluate your current broker dealer, as well as any others you may consider.
