  • At The Leaders Group, we are on the same side of the “football,” if you will. Many professional advisors are constantly wrestling with their broker-dealers. It is a theme I often hear among members of my industry groups. Working with The Leaders Group and its home-office staff is not a challenge. I can pick up the phone and speak with anybody at Leaders to get the help my office and I need. In the past, I have been associated with broker-dealers where there is a massive feeling of competitiveness among the advisors. At the Leaders Group, a feeling of family pervades throughout. In our profession, to maintain strong client relationships, advisors need backing from a strong team like The Leaders Group. Call us. We enjoy talking about our experience.

  • The answer at The Leaders Group is not “no and maybe we will reconsider,” the answer is, “we will investigate that and see if we can make it happen.” That is a nice breath of fresh air for a firm like ours, having dealt with restrictive broker-dealers in the past. A broker-dealer’s role should be to enable member firm growth as opposed to viewing member requests as a hassle or inconvenience. We could not be happier with The Leaders Group, and we look forward to working with them for many years to come.

  • The compliance department has been proactive to strategize with, which has been great. The Leaders Group is highly thoughtful in getting us to where we want to be as a firm. Compliance and the whole group make it easy. We can get things done in an expeditious manner.
