Choice of Affiliation Models
Above all else we want our advisors to be successful and to affiliate with us in a manner of their choosing, as a W-2 employee or a 1099 independent contractor, whichever best suits them and their clients.
We have an advantage in that we are not burdened with the excessive overhead found at the larger firms. Our aim is to utilize cutting edge technologies, to partner with world class institutions and industry leaders in order to improve efficiencies while providing outstanding resources and infrastructure for our teams.
We have built a platform designed primarily for investment professionals who want to continue to grow and who wish to benefit from a collegial environment of professional and like-minded people.
For all of these reasons, we are able to deliver among the industry’s most competitive payout structures. Furthermore, our payout and compensation structure is clear and unambiguous.
An advantage of partnering with Kingsbury Capital in a traditional W-2 manner is that your compensation is very near what an independent contractor would earn on a net basis.
The leverage you gain under our model as a W-2 employee can be significant as you are not burdened with the multitude of tasks and responsibilities that would be required of you as an administrator of a small office or as a sole -proprietor.
For those advisors who want to focus on growing their business and serving their clients, a traditional employee-employer relationship may be best. Leave the business of business administration to us. You focus on what you do best and what you most enjoy, working with clients, growing relationships and coordinating their financial lives.
As an employee, you get an independent culture without the independent expense. We do not want you to worry about the minutia and administrative complexity of running a Broker-Dealer and/or Registered Investment Advisor or the regulatory complexity associated with each. We simply want you to realize your full potential as a financial advisor focused primarily on growing assets and revenue and serving clients.
An independent contractor affiliation may be best for those who are highly entrepreneurial and who enjoy the challenge of managing people and administering an office as much as they enjoy managing their financial advisor practice.
Our goal for our 1099 colleagues is to provide all of the operations, compliance and regulatory oversight needed to run their business safely, comfortably and reliably while providing a payout that rivals any independent firm.
Independent contractors enjoy the same culture and open architecture that is afforded our W-2 colleagues and have access to the same unique products, services, best practice and training as well as full access to corporate leadership.
We embrace the entrepreneurial spirit and work closely with our 1099 colleagues to help them run a sound and efficient business so that they can realize the fruits of their labor and of a well-organized operation.
