Registered Rep Affiliation Benefits

Affiliation with Gradient Securities affords our representatives a suite of value-added services, including appointment tools, practice management and support services, training, prospecting, and more.

Chances are, most firms provide similar products and payouts. The real difference is the level of service the firm provides. At Gradient Securities, we offer world-class service by recognizing that servicing the investor is the most important thing our representatives do; and servicing those representatives is the most important thing we do. We are, and will always be, a silent partner, helping our representatives take their business to the next level.

Our team is comprised of the following personnel to ensure quick and accurate answers to questions and inquiries as well as ongoing training and support. Plus, our representatives receive easy - and encouraged - access to senior management.

  • Business Consultants - All representatives are assigned a dedicated team member who will serve as a "go-to person" for sales activities. We ensure our representatives don't waste time calling fund and variable companies for product information and sales ideas. We also provide sales ideas, case design, sample case analyses, and point-of-sale presentations and tools.
  • Business Coordinators - We help our representatives leverage their time with our resources. A dedicated business coordinator is assigned to all representatives to answer questions and provide business follow up. We allow our representatives to turn in client applications, and we do the rest. From proofing applications for prospective clients through commissions paid, we provide critical services for representatives so they can spend more time serving their clients.
