LINCOLN FINANCIAL NETWORK
From financial planning and consultation to client seminars and asset management, we provide support services for all forms of investment advisory business, accompanied by the flexibility you need to make the right decisions for your practice. Plus, the ability to provide these services gives you the time to focus on your clients and help grow your business.
Once you decide to build your practice on an advisory services model, your next decision concerns your registration and affiliation options. You can choose to affiliate as an Investment Advisor Representative or an independent Registered Investment Advisor.
Registering as an Investment Advisor Representative is the fastest and least expensive way to register when it comes to conducting advisory services activities. Under this option, Lincoln Financial is responsible for all regulatory filings, creation of disclosure documents, client agreements, and ensuring that policies and procedures are in compliance with all applicable regulations.
As an independent Registered Investment Advisor, you'll be responsible for all of the responsibilities listed above, but you'll have the strength and support of Lincoln Financial to back you up. You'll have the freedom to choose the activities you would like to conduct, as well as the fees charged for your services.
