I used to work for Edward Jones in their home office. I will just say that I share many of your negative feelings toward that firm.


I am going back to graduate school full time, and while I don't intend to work in the securities industry again, I don't want to let my registrations expire.


I affiliated with that Primerica group just to keep my license in force, but they are a very poorly run organization, to say the least.


I am looking for a normal B/D that I can affiliate with, that will let me just park my licenses there, have me pay all of the fees involved, and not bother me about lack of production, etc.


I would never sell anything Primerica offers, but I don't mind the idea of affiliating with a group that would let me be "part time" and see what I want to who I want in the future.


Any ideas?

"park" my license was a bad choice of words. I want to affiliate with a broker, be free to write business should I find clients among family or friends, but not have a production requirement, etc.


I want to maintain the registrations in case I change my mind about my future plans, but not be a producing broker full time.

I know someone who actually did this.


He was a 'broker' at a discount Brokerage house taking phone orders for about three years. They had a big layoff and he 'parked' his license, then went to work as Bug Spray Man. He 'managed' his own route.


Then he applied at Edward Jones, and got hired. Since the Region was "red" for growth, the RL/GP used a Silver Bullet to get him hired.


He now tells people he has been a "Financial Advisor" for over 10 years. True Story. He door knocked my former BOA.

Silver Bullet?  You mean like Coors Light?
