[GRAPHIC] Stories of Independence 

[GRAPHIC] How Berkeley Capital Partners has taken charge of its own destiny.

Going independent has been an enormous benefit to the asset management side of what we do.

The industry is changing so quickly that we wanted to be in control of our own business so we could make good decisions for our clients.

We have the ability to control our own destiny and manage our own business. I can sit down with a person, and I can make a business decision immediately on the spot.

You have the choice of what trading platform you buy, where you get different investment ideas, you know, what kind of research you use. And in fact, you can make all those decisions and you have that choice is something you really don’t have in the wirehouse world because someone’s choosing for you.

Being independent has really allowed us the flexibility to change our firm in ways that we think is best for the client and the best for the future of the firm.

Really, it gives you a rewarding feeling being able to do what you truly think is the right thing to do for them with no one influencing that decision.
