NEXT Financial Group Inc. (NEXT) was recently recognized by Rep. Magazine as a three-time finalist in their 2015 Wealth Management Industry Awards. The firm’s nominated initiatives include the Commitment to Excellence (CTE) Committee, the Essential Lessons for Investment Training Excellence (ELITE) Program and their transition support.
Nominated in the categories practice management, transition support and service, NEXT was the only broker-dealer in its class to take three out of four nominations.
“Providing our advisors with resources and avenues for success is our highest priority,” said Barry Knight, president of NEXT. “I could not be more proud of our back office team for all their hard work in making these recognized initiatives possible.”
All three nominations were attributed to programs or initiatives NEXT has created that enhance the advisors’ experience. The Commitment to Excellence Committee’s success stems from firm-wide efforts such as customer service training week for employees and representative highlights. The ELITE program provides aspiring advisors a way to ease into the industry through licensing support and study materials, as well as training through the Sequoia System for Advisors. NEXT’s dedicated transition team of professionals has helped hundreds of advisors efficiently switch over accounts, strengthen their division recruiting efforts and spearhead their marketing strategies.
“As a founding member of NEXT, the recognition from these nominations truly shows how far we have come,” said Norm Grant, CEO of NEXT Financial Holdings Inc. “I believe it is also indicative of where our firm is heading in the future, and our direction will continue to be led by the needs of our advisors.”
