I'm a Certified Financial Planner and also have the Certified Annuity Specialist designation through the Institute of Business and Finance.
Dual registration as both a broker and investment advisor, and the broker/dealer and RIA is called ClientOne Securities out of Kansas. My business is primarily annuities and alternative investments, although we maintain a small book of managed money at Charles Schwab using the Envestnet platform.
Alternative investments include non-traded preferred stocks and select Business Development Companies and Non-traded REITs. Annuities are primarily MYGAs, SPIA/DIA and FIA with only a couple of Variable Annuities in the book.
My goal is to meet someone who is open to working with a young credentialed advisor and utilizing me as a short-term succession plan (retire in 3-5 years). I'm willing to pay a premium to the market for the opportunity.
