Our Broker-Dealer: Cetera Financial Specialists

We are affiliated with Cetera Financial Specialists, one of the premier broker-dealers in the industry. As our broker-dealer, they are responsible for executing trades on your behalf. Like all broker-dealers, they must undergo regular auditing, and are required to meet specific net capital requirements to ensure it can meet its obligations to investors like you.

But their support for our relationship goes well beyond its function as trade executor. Our affiliation means that we am not held to a sales quota or tied to selling only proprietary products.

Our Custodians: Pershing and Cetera Investment Services

While a broker-dealer helps supervise and facilitate the trading that converts your cash into invested assets, those assets are actually held by a custodian. Cetera Financial Specialists works with two custodians. Cetera Investment Services LLC custodies individual retirement accounts (IRAs). Pershing LLC custodies brokerage accounts, including the brokerage accounts within IRAs.

Pershing is a subsidiary of the Bank of New York Mellon Corporation, which is the nation’s oldest continuously operating bank and one of the world’s leading providers of securities services. Cetera Investment Services is an affiliate of Cetera Financial Specialists, providing brokerage and other services to its own clients in addition to providing IRA custodial services to Cetera Financial Specialists’ clients. Both Pershing and Cetera Investment Services have to meet certain net capital requirements and are subject to regular audits, both internally and by independent firms, to ensure the appropriate handling, segregation and protection of investors’ assets.

Our Most Important Connection: With You

While the firms behind me play important roles in our day-to-day servicing of your needs, the most important relationship we have is undoubtedly with you. We work with these firms to make it easier for us to work for you. Anytime you would like more information about the above firms, please do not hesitate to ask. We want you to feel confident that you understand, to your satisfaction, how we work with and through these firms, why we have chosen to work with Cetera Financial Specialists, and the absolute priority both Cetera Financial Specialists and we place on our relationship with you.
