United Planners Financial Services of America, a dually registered broker-dealer and registered investment advisor and Milwaukee, WI-based Capital Market Consultants, Inc. (CMC) have entered into an agreement in which CMC will help United Planners enhance their third party money manager due diligence capabilities.

The United Planners’ investment advisory business has been steadily growing. One of the reasons they have been successful is because of their open-architecture philosophy. Advisors can be affiliated with United Planners’ investment advisory firm or they can have their own independent advisory firm. As one of their advisory options, United Planners provides advisors with a selection of professionally managed investment solutions. “As our advisors continue to grow their investment advisory practices through the use of third party money managers, we decided to enhance our overall review process. Our objective is to ensure we maintain the ‘best of breed’ in money manager solutions so our advisors can be assured they are equipped with quality products to offer to their clients. We are confident that CMC’s expertise will assist us in achieving our objectives,” said Billy Oliverio, Vice President of United Planners.

“We are delighted to be assisting an advisor-centric firm like United Planners in this important aspect of their growing business. Money manager due diligence is a core CMC expertise and sharing that skill with United Planners should be of benefit to their firm, advisors and investors. That’s our objective,” said Barry K. Mendelson, CIMA, CEO of Capital Market Consultants, Inc.
