What Trusted Rep/Advisors Require
Almost any Broker/Dealer can execute a trade for you, and for some Rep/Advisors this might be enough. On the other hand, a growing number of clients want you to make objective recommendations and decisions that meet their specific, sometimes unique, investment needs—and are willing to pay a fee for this expertise. Consequently, more and more Rep/Advisors are dedicating themselves to filling this role of “trusted advisor.” This, in turn, requires much greater freedom of choice.
OpenOPTIONS™ Means More Choices
“Freedom To Choose” requires a Broker/Dealer with unsurpassed fee expertise, so it can offer the necessary range of options. While some Rep/Advisors can satisfy their clients’ needs with just a few platform and program choices, an increasing number are using multiple trading platforms, customized fee schedules, and entirely new programs for their clients. We’re seeing more Rep/Advisors with unprecedented client needs and situations, and who need unconventional, yet compliant, solutions. At Cambridge, this is all in a day’s work.
