WV Wealth Management Solutions is aligned with Cambridge Investment Research, Inc. as our Broker/Dealer to help us maintain our independence and offer our clients more diverse options with no sales quotas.
In the words of Cambridge Investment Research, Inc.: "An independent Broker/Dealer allows financial professionals to offer non-proprietary products, such as mutual funds or life insurance, from a wide variety of companies. Your financial professional has chosen to work with an independent Broker/Dealer in order to offer you unbiased investment advice compensated in the form of fees, commissions, or both.
Cambridge allows their Advisors to be independent by not forcing them to sell proprietary products or meet any sales quotas. Therefore, your financial professional is not pressured or distracted by corporate interests and can focus on what is best for you and your financial goals.
Your independent financial professional is not an employee of an investment or financial services firm - they are an independent business owner."
