Raising awareness about the independent difference

A powerful ad campaign just for you

Your independence is everything. And we support that 100%. That's why we launched a national advertising campaign to help educate high-net-worth investors about the independent difference.

This high-impact multi-media campaign features real, independent advisors and highlights the values they live by—trust, accountability, and the fiduciary standard—giving investors reasons to consider switching to an independent financial advisor.


Educating investors about the independent difference

Investor awareness of the independent difference is an important first step. Helping them understand the benefits of working with an independent advisor is the next. That's why the national advertising campaign drives high-net-worth investors to the Independent Advisor Learning Center. Here, they can learn more about the benefits of working with an independent financial advisor and find independent financial advisory firms near them.


Declare your independence

In order for investors to connect with an independent financial advisor like you, they have to know where to look. That's why we created an advisor directory on the Independent Advisor Learning Center, where high-net-worth investors can find independent financial advisory firms in their area.
