  • Brokerage – BDFSC clears through First Clearing LLC, an affiliate of Wells Fargo & Company. First Clearing LLC was founded in 1983 and is headquartered in St. Louis. Their team of experienced professionals offers some of the industry’s best insights and innovative approaches to business advancement. Their affiliation with Wells Fargo Advisors, one of the nation’s largest brokerage firms, and their parent company, Wells Fargo & Company, one of the world’s most admired financial services firms and highly valued brands, means access to vast resources to help drive business growth and productivity. This unique and powerful combination provides both intimacy and scale that can be brought to bear across various business models.
  • Advisory – IAC supports our investment advisory representatives with the full spectrum of approaches, ranging from the use of third party managers and mutual fund programs to advisor developed strategies, Unified Managed Accounts, managed programs and financial planning. Our advisors also have the freedom to select from a number of custodian firms including TD Ameritrade, Fidelity Institutional and Charles Schwab.

    Additionally, IAC can assist the advisor who manages their own investment advisory firm but can benefit from the services of a broker-dealer as well. We are committed to partnering with these firms to provide a sensible, cost-effective approach to broker-dealer services and supervision. Our intent is to offer a broker-dealer alternative that supports your practice, preserves your freedom and satisfies our supervisory charge without requiring undue administration or costs.
  • Insurance – BDFSC partners with a selection of insurance organizations that specialize in serving the independent financial professional. These firms have demonstrated exemplary customer service, extensive professional knowledge and the ability to help you build your insurance practice.
    While our advisors are not currently obligated to use our partner firms, we are confident that they will prove themselves valuable. They offer a wide selection of top products and carriers and you can expect top compensation, and BDFSC production credit.
  • Alternative Investments – BDFSC understands the role that alternative investment can play in the sophisticated investor’s portfolio. Investing in real assets such as real estate, agriculture, land development and energy can offer a means to diversification that extends beyond stocks, bonds and cash for the right investor.
    BDFSC is open to the review and offering of select traded and non-traded REIT’s, BDC’s and private placements. BDFSC advisors may benefit from the activity in alternative investments in that they are able to differentiate themselves from their competition and offer their clients true value with unique investment opportunities that may not be available elsewhere.
