Advisors and Broker-Dealers

As a firm providing wealth management services to clients in the U.S., we are registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as an investment adviser and a broker-dealer, offering both investment advisory and brokerage services.

Though there are similarities among these services, the investment advisory programs and brokerage accounts we offer are separate and distinct, differ in material ways and are governed by different laws and separate contracts with you.

Our clients work with their Financial Advisors to determine the services that are most appropriate given the clients' goals and circumstances. Based on the services you request, we can fulfill your wealth management needs in our capacity as an investment adviser, as a broker-dealer or as both.
