Today’s financial professional faces unprecedented challenges. Helping clients make sound financial decisions and navigate difficult markets are no longer enough to ensure success. The regulatory environment combined with increased competition and expanding client needs are driving evolution in the advisory model. Preserving flexibility while maintaining focus on a unique value proposition is the key to long-term success.

With great challenge comes great opportunity.

In 2012, two leading financial services firms, both located in Omaha, Nebraska, came together to meet the needs of an underserved segment of the market: financial professionals who wanted the freedom and autonomy of operating their own registered investment advisor firm but were discouraged by the idea of managing the complexity and compliance burden themselves. The companies – Securities America and Orion Advisor Services – partnered to form a new entity to shoulder the regulatory burden and harness industry-leading innovation allowing advisors to maintain focus where it belongs – on their clients. That firm is Arbor Point Advisors.
