Bob Carter stated, “The leveraging of an experienced, visionary executive, Brian Murphy, has created this contemporary, integrated platform for all financial products through partnerships with Pershing, Envestnet, and other providers.”

Bob Carter, Lion Street’s Founder and CEO states, “It is a tremendous honor to be given this award, knowing it came from votes of confidence received from our Owner-Firms. We are humbled to be commended by those that we service.” Lion Street consists of 125 Owner-Firms nationwide in 40 states. Lion Street won the Division I category for companies with up to 199 representatives.

Lion Street was founded by industry veteran Bob Carter in 2010 as a distributor of insurance products. Distinguished by offering real value through ownership, both employees and advisors have stock in the company providing cultural and financial alignment. Lion Street started Lion Street Financial to provide a broker-dealer and RIA for Owner-Firms that provide investment advice and asset management to corporate and high-net-worth clients.

Mr. Carter added, “The leveraging of an experienced, visionary executive, Brian Murphy, has created this contemporary, integrated platform for all financial products through partnerships with Pershing, Envestnet, and other providers.”

“Independent broker-dealers are facing business and especially regulatory headwinds from the Department of Labor’s fiduciary rule,” said Jamie Green, editor of Investment Advisor. “Yet these firms are earning the loyalty of their representatives day in and day out as shown by the high rankings they were given by their fiercely independent reps.”

Brian Murphy, Executive Director of Lion Street Financial stated, “Being relatively new, we are uninhibited by legacy issues facing most broker-dealers today. Our systems are custom designed for today’s regulatory environment and adaptable to the changing needs of elite registered representatives. We aren’t bringing in green advisors, but well established firms.”

Lion Street’s recognition is based on receiving high scores in all categories, and a total score that was highest among its peers. For additional coverage of Lion Street and the Broker-Dealer of the Year award, please visit the online articles from ThinkAdvisor.com linked below.
