FWA Brand 1099 Advisor

Freedom to choose how you want to structure your career- FWA Brand 1099 Option

In the last decade we have witnessed the surge in financial advisors choosing independence.

Along with independence comes a host of added duties, the ones your broker-dealer did for you. These activities are mostly administrative and produce no direct income. At some point the illusion of a higher payout drifts further away, as your time is now split between hosts of non-income producing activities.

If your idea of independence is doing it your way, and earning more because you work hard on the activities that grow your income, then we might have a hybrid solution for you.
