“From OCC Bank Examiner, the Bank Officer to employee status Wealth Advisor, I made the move to Independent in 2019 and it’s the best move of my career. Building my practice of service my way without the Wells Fargo style production quotas and incentives. Still must adhere to all laws and FINRA rulings and under annual audit and review, I now operate under 1099 NEC rules. Our entire team moved over from Wells Fargo Advisors in 2019 to the Raymond James Independent platform – terrific company, ability to serve my clients without company interference, remain heavily regulated and supervised but free to operate my business, hire my team my way. Never been happier.”
