THE FSC SECURITIES PERSPECTIVE
Whether you’re a wirehouse veteran ready to take more control, an independent advisor looking for greater service and support, or a commissioned advisor interested in transitioning to a fee-based business model, FSC offers you the freedom to run your practice as you see fit in a collaborative culture.
A Commitment to Supporting and Empowering Independence
Since our first days as a company in 1958, we have been unconditionally committed as a firm to strengthening and supporting the advisors we serve. In fact, to ensure that you have the power you need and the right tools to get the job done we do something radical in this industry: we listen to you. Your input helps shape what we do and how we do it. And then if what we do can be improved, we won’t stop until exactly what’s needed is done. It’s a commitment.
The results reflect this approach. More than 1,200 advisors call FSC home and they boast an average annual GDC in excess of $261,000 with a total of $38 billion in total client assets. With an impressive retention rate and an average tenure of 10.6 years, we find that when advisors find us, they stay and tend to stay for a long time. For nearly 60 years, FSC has been the first choice for advisors.
When an advisor selects to affiliate with FSC, they tend to stay for a very long time—on average for well over a decade and often to the end of their career.
Top producers—and our advisors average over $261,000 in annual GDC—like what they’ve found at FSC because of the culture of collaboration and support.
Flexibility, Tools and Options That Put Advisors in Control
FSC puts advisors in control by providing them with flexibility to run their business the way they want. We want you to do business your way. While many broker-dealers offer narrow definitions of what open architecture means to them, we are focused on what it means to you. We understand that you have a vision to take your already successful practice to an even better place. The bottom line is that you know the best way to manage your own business.
Your ability to excel in your practice is tied to having the right tools to get the job done. That’s why FSC is dedicated to developing sophisticated programs, technologies and guardrails necessary for success. These include a suite of solutions for business planning, streamlined offices, portfolio management, and a wide range of powerful resources integrated into one dynamic resource center.
Our liberating “open architecture” approach is designed to maximize your flexibility and support so that it fits the way you want to do business.
Choose from a wide range of affiliation options and we’ll help ensure that you are in your comfort zone: Independent, Branch or RIA models.
We Put Advisors First and Then Provide Extraordinary Support
We are confident that the financial professionals we serve enjoy the best of all worlds—big-firm resources with small-firm attention. That’s because we are part of one of the largest truly independent broker-dealer networks in the industry and yet have maintained a family feel with a genuine open-door policy that encourages advisor input and helps shape the firm’s direction. In every way, FSC is advisor-centric.
We never take our commitment to supporting advisors lightly. As an FSC advisor you can count on advanced technology, business-building support, learning opportunities, coaching and training, and extensive product listings. Our support begins at the moment you choose to join our team and continues throughout your career with us and even beyond. Now the industry standards, our succession and continuity programs help you reap the rewards of a job well done.
