Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) August 27, 2014
Prospera Financial Services, Inc. (Prospera) was named last week as Investment Advisor Magazine’s 2014 Broker-Dealer of the Year in Division I, representing firms with up to 199 producing advisors. The magazine conducts an annual poll asking its financial advisor readers to anonymously rank their firms on criteria like service, payout and technology. This is the fourth time in six years that Prospera has attained the prestigious industry honor, and was previously honored in 2009, 2010, and 2012.
David Stringer, President of Prospera, states “This award is especially meaningful to me and the entire Prospera team because it really came from our reps through their nominations. We firmly believe we work for them; we are financial professionals serving financial professionals. Our entire support team is keenly focused on delivering industry-leading service and support to our financial professionals so our win is particularly gratifying as recognition of that hard work.”
The annual Broker-Dealer of the Year award is based on voting in 15 different categories, including an overall rating that counts for 30% of the total score. The broker-dealer receiving the highest average rating from its voting representatives wins Broker-Dealer of the Year in its division.
“We aspire to be the gold standard for boutique independent firms”, Stringer adds. “This certainly feels good and reinforces that we are on the right track as we continually raise our industry-leading standards for service at an independent broker-dealer.”
