ESI’s foundation is rooted in the belief that everyone should have access to the responsible, goal-oriented advice that an advisor can provide.
Investment professionals rely on a partnership with a broker-dealer in order to help serve their clients. Just as hospitals provide the support structure physicians and surgeons need to practice medicine, broker-dealers also serve many important functions on behalf of financial practitioners and their clients. This is why it is imperative that investment professionals conduct their practices through an experienced broker-dealer such as Equity Services, Inc. (ESI).
For example, a broker-dealer provides a support staff and technology platforms to execute the recommendations an adviser and their client agree to implement. ESI provides access to the infrastructure to buy, sell, service and report on a vast array of investment solutions.
ESI has an outstanding team of dedicated professionals and has contracted with some of the nation’s largest and most reputable financial firms to carry out some of these critical functions.
With fee-based products, EFA, its adviser representatives and third party managers are paid a fee for managing the assets of clients, as opposed to charging a transactional commission.
