One of the most daunting tasks you face when changing broker/dealers is the process of transitioning your business. Maybe you’ve never changed broker/dealers or have only done it once or twice before. 

As you begin the process, we are here to help you address issues related to new accounts, account transfers, compliance, operations and marketing services. We feel that guiding you and your staff efficiently through your transition period, while properly setting and managing expectations, is an intricate part in transferring your business as quickly and as efficiently as possible.
