Does anyone have any information on Securities America? I am either going to Commonwealth Financial or Securities America and would like some feedback.
Thanks for your time in advance.
Historically Securities America has been known as the high payout/lower support b/d. Experienced, self-sufficient reps who are looking for a decent b/d with around the highest payout, but don't need a lot of handholding from them, often went there. Don't know if that's still the case since they were acquired by American Express.
Commonwealth (my opinion) is a very good quality b/d. Very supportive & good culture. Reps always seem to be very happy there. It's not unusual for reps that have done thorough due diligence in terms of looking for the highest quality indy b/ds, end up with RJFS, LPL & Commonwealth on their list of finalists.
I was with Securities America. I moved to LPL two years ago and it is way beyond Securities America in every way!

Do you care to elaborate? Why did you leave SA?
