Momentum Continues to Build Towards Industry Unity
In yet another strong show of support for the Financial Services Institute (FSI), Money Concepts announced that all of their independent financial advisors are now new FSI financial advisor members. The financial advisors’ first-year membership is offered on a complimentary basis by the firm.
Dale Brown, FSI’s President & CEO, said: “Everything we do is aimed at increasing our advocacy success. Regulators and lawmakers pay attention when our members, their constituents, are engaged in the policy making process. Once again, our collective voice is growing stronger and more influential. The momentum our members are creating speaks loudly that every independent financial advisor should join the fight to protect their business by becoming an FSI member.”
Money Concepts President and CEO Denis Walsh said: “We relentlessly strive to serve the needs and desires of the independent financial advisor community, as well as our associates’ ability to provide the best service and products to their clients. We believe that the work the FSI is engaged in is critically important and we are proud to be associated with them.”
In addition to advocacy, FSI financial advisor members receive: access to analyses of regulatory and legislative proposals; an Advocacy Action Center and all-in-one mobile app to easily communicate with legislators and regulators and keep up with industry news; opportunities to visit Capitol Hill and educate lawmakers; access to FSI’s Financial Advisor Summit and exclusive FSI publications and communications.
Members also now have access to two tools to help them sell the value of independence to prospective clients in order to grow their businesses. A 60-second video and corresponding infographic can be downloaded for free at financialservices.org/store. Both tools have received review letters from FINRA and are client-ready.
