Here’s the Skinny…
For your curiosity and in the spirit of transparency, I just shared a recent announcement, “The Inside-Scoop on USA Financial for 2018 (and Beyond),” that was sent to all of our affiliated advisors. It’s a bit of a state-of-the-company address that I do each year:
“Long ago, economic security was simply a function of a company’s SIZE and AGE, whereas now economic security is a function of a firm’s continued GROWTH and AGILITY.”
The quote above is something I originally said a few years back, but have restated to our team and others numerous times since. Ironically, even though we strategize as a growing, agile organization, I’m proud that we can lay-claim to achieving high-grades in each of those four categories:
- SIZE – Our overall custody is over $3.5 billion with three-quarters of a billion in annual sales.
- AGE – This year, we will celebrate our 30th year in business.
- GROWTH – In 2017, we were named to the Inc. 5000 list for the fourth year in a row. This is an annual list of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States.
- AGILITY – Early 2017 “took-off” with USA Financial Exchange making a splash as a turnkey asset management program (TAMP) with industry leading features. USA Financial Securities then “officially became more RIA than BD,” as fee revenues surpassed commission revenues for the first time. Finally, at the end of 2017, we quietly launched USA Financial Consulting in response to and in support of IARs, Hybrid RIAs, and Stand-Alone RIAs assessing and implementing compliance, transition, and registration opportunities.
I go in to more detail in the full announcement that can be accessed here: “The Inside-Scoop on USA Financial for 2018 (and Beyond).”
That’s the Skinny,
