Momentum Continues to Build Towards Industry Unity
In yet another strong show of support for the Financial Services Institute (FSI), Capital Investment Companies announced that over 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: “Grassroots engagement is critical to our advocacy success. Regulators and lawmakers pay attention when constituents are engaged in the policy making process. So our collective voice is getting 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.”
Capital Investment Companies’ President Richard K. Bryant added: “It’s an honor to be associated with an organization like FSI. They make a tremendous difference in our industry. Their knowledge of the issues and skillful execution gets results.”
In addition to advocacy, FSI financial advisor members receive: access to analyses of regulatory and legislative proposals; an Advocacy Action Center to easily communicate with legislators and regulators; opportunities to visit Capitol Hill and educate lawmakers; access to FSI’s first-ever Financial Advisor Summit and exclusive FSI publications and communications.
