Why become an Advisor with Pure? We provide specialized support so that our Advisors can spend their time where they need to – in front of clients, managing the client relationship, and providing comprehensive financial planning advice. Below are examples of how we provide support to our Advisors:

  • Marketing & Business Development – We generate the leads so that our Advisors don’t have to invest their time on marketing efforts. This is done in various ways, including our educational classes and client events, as well as, Your Money, Your Wealth® television, radio, and podcast shows. We have teams focused on marketing and business development to handle calls from numerous prospective clients – people that want to sit down with an experienced financial professional. We also set the appointments, so that the Advisor can spend the time meeting with prospective clients, gaining a better understanding of their needs and how we can help them meet their financial goals.
  • Financial Planning – Our extensive Financial Planning department is comprised of dedicated, experienced financial professionals that partner with our Advisors and provide comprehensive and detailed advice on all aspects (financial planning, tax planning, estate planning, retirement planning, etc.) of the client’s life – We take a deep and PURE dive into planning.
  • Investment Management – Pure’s trading department works with Advisors on managing the client’s portfolio in a tax-optimized way – daily rebalancing, tax loss harvesting, asset location, etc.
  • Operations and Client Services – We have client service teams to handle everything – they work with the custodians to ensure all transactions are taken care of and take the paperwork off the Advisor’s “to-do” list!
