Many advisors consider the compliance department the dreaded sales prevention team. We have heard many stories of the painful process of trying to receive compliance approval for the simplest marketing piece. We promise when it comes to compliance that we will work with you as a partner.
Sales and marketing is an integral part of your business and we are here to not only help you increase your production, but to do so within established industry rules and regulations. We consider web sites, brochures, print advertising, mailers, sponsorships, and seminars to be valid means of communicating your business to current and potential clients. We will work with you to develop advertising that satisfies regulatory guidelines.
We continue to increase our compliance staff to provide you with timely turnaround of your marketing materials. There are various rules and regulations set by the different regulatory authorities such as FINRA, the SEC and the states that must be followed. Our proactive compliance staff is here to help and protect you and your customers.
Changing broker/dealers is a difficult task. It is that "fear of the unknown" that often keeps wirehouse representatives from making the leap to doing what they feel deep down is the right thing to do with their careers. Our transition team will help ease the pain. While changing firms will never be easy, our experience has taught us how to do it better and more efficiently. While a move to Cantella may be the first change of broker/dealers in your career, we have helped transition hundreds of representatives and each time gain more knowledge to help keep the transition smooth.
Our experience will help mitigate your fears and avoid frustration. We are here to help you during those first few months as you learn a new system. We are firm believers in doing things right the first time and want you to ask as many questions as necessary to feel comfortable with each aspect of your business. We develop a timeline for implementation and a transition plan designed to meet the needs of your business. We are here to help.
Your transition team will identify and strategize your business in various aspects including:
- Establishing your branch office location
- Transferring securities and insurance licenses
- Transferring client accounts and processing broker/dealer of record changes
- Familiarizing you with compliance standards and procedures
- Printing business cards, letterhead and marketing materials

- Technology guidance to help you get the most out of the platform
- Trading training to help you understand your new system
