The FMSI Difference
First Midwest Securities, Inc. (FMSI) has been meeting the needs of independent financial advisors since its creation in 1989. The firm is a truly independent broker-dealer, which means it is not owned by another broker-dealer, insurance company, or bank. We provide the conduit to products without proprietary ties or quotas.
Indeed, FMSI is a full–service broker-dealer, registered investment adviser, and insurance agency. In addition to our friendly, knowledgeable back office staff, we offer two clearing options, Pershing and Legent Clearing. We also offer a robust Investment Advisory platform utilizing TD Ameritrade Institutional, Pershing Advisor Solutions, Lockwood, Envestnet, as well as several third party money managers. Additionally, we have a Fixed Income Desk, which is staffed by a seasoned trader who is available to assist you in meeting your clients’ needs.
The relationships we build with our independent financial advisors are key to mutual success. We understand that we are hired by advisors to serve and support the service that they provide to their clients. Our combination of service, independence and payout structure sets you free to concentrate on the important issues – your business and your clients.
Give yourself a raise.
