Commonwealth Financial Network®
As registered investment professionals, we are required to affiliate with a company in order to buy and sell investment products on behalf of investors. Azimuth Wealth Management has chosen to work with Commonwealth Financial Network, an independent broker/dealer, which means our firm remains independent, too. We are free to act in your best interest, without pressure to promote a particular product or strategy. It's a model that differs from that of some other, larger financial firms whose financial representatives are accountable not just to their clients, but also to the parent company that employs them.
Commonwealth Financial Network is recognized as one of the nation's largest privately held independent broker/dealers. Our relationship with Commonwealth provides us with extensive resources, including a highly credentialed independent investment research team, attorneys, and insurance professionals. Commonwealth is also independently owned and managed, which means the firm retains the freedom to allocate resources where they're needed and to act in the best interests of its financial advisors and their clients—not shareholders.
