WHY CHOOSE STRATOS?

Many advisors find it easier to go independent as part of an established firm. You are able to enjoy real independence while benefiting from logistical support, lower startup costs, shared overhead and other economies of scale. By sharing the knowledge of those who’ve already made their move, your transition can be smooth and efficient.

Stratos Provides The Freedom To:

Choose your business model and location

Higher income potential

Potential to Increase profitability through  economies of scale

Recommend highly customized strategy options to your clients

Develop more meaningful client relationships

Work free from the pressure to sell specific products

Build equity in your future as an Owner/Partner

Control your own destiny

As a Stratos independent advisor, you are able to recommend the investment strategy options that meet your clients’ needs. You’re free from the pressure to push specific products or meet “informal” cross-selling goals. And you won’t have to worry about client relationships being compromised by senior management’s agenda or bad press.

Business Meeting

A Collaborative
Peer Network

One of the keys to our advisors’ success is the peer network we have established. As a partner-owned firm, our advisors take an interest not only in their success, but in that of the firm and their peers. We’ve fostered an environment that encourages sharing and joint work much like that of a professional services firm. Consequently, advisors routinely share best practices, strategies and even clients when the skill sets of another partner can result in an improved outcome for the end client.

What Advisors Say...

No matter which way you slice and dice it, it costs a lot of money to run an office and you might be somewhere around 10 to 15 percentage points of revenue to run a practice depending on trading volume. What matters is where you NET out at the end of the day. I could have gone direct to LPL and probably be at a 92% or 93% payout based on my production and Branch bonuses; however, for that extra four or five percent that I'm giving up, which is $50,000 on $1,000,000 of production, there is no way I would be able to have concierge-level service for technology and compliance, human resources, marketing, practice acquisition, different platforms, institutional partners at Fidelity and Schwab, like I do through Stratos.

“From the beginning of my time with Stratos, Jeff Concepcion and his team at the home office have been true partners in my business.  Their willingness to help and the sincerity shown, has never waivered.  Stratos goes above and beyond in order to try to provide everything that I need for my business and my clients.   The Stratos staff really does make the difference.”
