"Success isn't about how much money you make,
it's about the difference you make in people's lives."
— Michelle Obama
Commonwealth Financial Network® is our broker/dealer. A broker/dealer is a company that a registered investment professional is required to affiliate with in order to buy and sell investment products on behalf of investors. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) delegates the supervision of financial advisors to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). FINRA, in turn, requires us to choose a broker/dealer to partner with on your behalf. Commonwealth is an independent broker/dealer, which means that our firm remains independent, too. We are free to act in your best interest without pressure to promote a particular product or strategy. It's a model that differs from that of some other, larger financial firms known as "wirehouses," whose financial representatives are accountable not just to their clients, but also to the parent company that employs them. Commonwealth is also independently owned and managed, which means the firm retains the freedom to allocate resources where they're needed and to act in the best interests of its financial advisors and their clients—not shareholders. Commonwealth's organization is built around helping advisors do whatever it takes to serve their clients. It's that infrastructure—and the always expanding abundance of resources it provides—that makes it easier for our firm to provide you with the best possible guidance and the prompt, personal service you expect and deserve.
