Our Firm

Independent Advisors

You’ve worked hard to build your business; the last thing you need is someone dictating how to organize your business, setting quotas on products or pushing services that make no sense for your clients. When you look around the industry the landscape has changed. The waves of acquisitions over the past 20 years have left few survivors that believe the core of a successful business is still the relationship between the advisor and the client. And yet that is Sterne Agee. We’re here to help you and your clients thrive. We combine unsurpassed products, services and technology to give you the tools you need, as an independent advisor, to reach your most ambitious goals.

We support over 275 independent advisors throughout the country and we have been recognized as one of the fastest growing Broker/Dealers in the nation. Our comprehensive collection of products gives you and your clients more options and more avenues to reach your goals. While our compensation plan rivals any in the business, we will never compromise your integrity or relationship with your clients by forcing you to choose between your own profitability and your clients. You built the relationship, so why should your client relationship belong to anyone but you? We’re here to help you serve your clients in the way you think best.
