FSI Adds Nearly 150 New Financial Advisor Members

March 23, 2014

In yet another strong show of support for the Financial Services Institute (FSI), Moloney Securities announced that nearly 150 of their independent financial advisors are now new FSI financial advisor members. The financial advisors’ first-year membership is offered on a complimentary basis by the firm.

Dale Brown, FSI’s President & CEO, said: “Everything we do is aimed at increasing our advocacy success. Regulators and lawmakers pay attention when our members, their constituents, are engaged in the policy making process. Once again, our collective voice is growing stronger and more influential. The momentum our members are creating speaks loudly that every independent financial advisor should join the fight to protect their business by becoming an FSI member.”

Moloney Securities’ President & COO Ted Moloney said: “It is a great privilege to offer FSI membership to our financial advisors. Given the highly regulated environment in which we operate, it is of paramount importance that we have a voice and an advocate in the legislative process. We therefore fully support and endorse the mission of the Financial Services Institute.”

In addition to advocacy, FSI financial advisor members receive: access to analyses of regulatory and legislative proposals; an Advocacy Action Center and all-in-one mobile app to easily communicate with legislators and regulators and keep up with industry news; opportunities to visit Capitol Hill and educate lawmakers; access to FSI’s Financial Advisor Summit and exclusive FSI publications and communications.

Members also now have access to two tools to help them sell the value of independence to prospective clients in order to grow their businesses. A 60-second video and corresponding infographic can be downloaded for free at financialservices.org/store. Both tools have received review letters from FINRA and are client-ready.
