The Power of Empowerment

Scale and grow your business with confidence

Developing and managing a fiduciary financial services company in today’s regulatory environment is time-consuming, challenging, and complex. In order to successfully deliver high-quality professional money management, insurance, and financial planning services to your clients you need to hire the right team. Finding the right balance between client acquisition and client services is the key to success. Our team has created and refined a process that serves financial advisors by optimizing the way they deliver professional money management services to their clients. We call it Advisor Empowerment (AE).

Advisor Empowerment helps financial advisors discover, design, and deploy their unique financial planning skills into a business structure that maximizes their success. Our approach keeps you in control, minimizes fees, and enhances the way you do business, ultimately providing you and your business with a sustainable competitive advantage and your client with proficient and effective portfolios.

There’s only so much time in a day, a week, a year. Focus on what you do best and let us do the rest.

Stay Focused on the Big Picture

Think of yourself as an architect designing a building. Clients expect you to create the design that results in a building with a strong foundation and a solid roof. They don’t expect you to pound the nails…but they do rely on you to work with a team of professionals that gets the job done correctly under your direction, making their future a reality. With Synergy Financial Management, you’ll have the team you need. Let us help!

4 Choices for Empowerment

We know one size does not fit all, and that a healthy culture is imperative to your success. Therefore, our Advisor Empowerment Program has four ways you can partner with SFM for professional money management and business support. We can help you build your own RIA or connect you to one of our preferred advisors who will meet your business needs. Moreover, if you qualify, you are welcome to join our private internal investment advisor representative program.

Most firms offer one or two of these alternatives, but SFM offers all four. Now you can select the exact services you want, and have the freedom and support you need.

Independent RIA

If you are an RIA who enjoys independence and wants to set up your own registered investment advisory firm, this is the right choice for you. You stay in control and build your business with SFM guiding you through the entire process. SFM coaches you, staying behind the scenes as your practice’s money manager while you develop your business the way you wish.

Partner RIA

This choice is for the RIA who either wants to join an investment firm, or may already be in a firm and wants to access SFM’s many services. If the thought of taking on a full set of management issues disinterests you, such as making strategic and tactical decisions or being responsible for compliance, SFM can help you find an existing investment firm, perhaps one of the many firms in our preferred network throughout the country. Also, if you are already an RIA at an investment firm and want to use our services, SFM will go through the approval process with your current company so you can partner with us. Either of these choices is a good way to access the many unique and customized services SFM offers.

Synergy IAR

For the very select few, SFM will consider inviting an RIA to join SFM as an Investment Advisory Representative. SFM provides a broad array of products and services for the internal representative willing to advance in business by following SFM’s processes and using SFM’s many resources for becoming a successful financial planner.

Signals Only

Independent RIAs whose profession is focused mostly on money management can purchase SFM’s trading signals, acquiring our unique and privately-developed strategic and tactical investment insights for use with their own clients. RIAs who select this choice make their own decisions on when and how to use the signals, how and where to trade funds, and manage their clients’ investments as they choose best. If requested, SFM can also customize processes for an RIA who needs specific and specialized investment information.
