After spending nearly 30 years in the investment business I was fortunate to reach a level of success many would envy. Yet the two firms I worked with had inefficient business models and limited products to help the consumer. So I decided to go totally independent. After an exhausting study of independent broker dealers in which I ran 42 companies through a 22-point filter, I chose Cambridge Investment Research, Inc. and set up our company Independent Financial Professionals (IFP). I chose Cambridge because they are committed to the independent producer. Cambridge enables financial professionals to offer non-proprietary products from a wide variety of companies; they are not concerned about pushing products they developed or making you build your business their way. I set up IFP as a company as a hybrid model for success: where individual producers can work alongside individuals who choose to manage a group and grow professionally by mentoring others. Whether you choose to be an individual practitioner, manage a group, or both, you can thrive here. 

I invite you to check out all the material on our website. If something prompts a question, please feel free to contact company headquarters for more information. In a short period of time, we should be able to determine if joining IFP may be a fit for you.
