Broker/Dealer of the Year, Division III

NEXT Financial Group

President Barry Knight

A rep speaks: Having come from a career agency, the limitations I experienced and the pressure to present the home office's proprietary product made presenting myself as an unbiased financial planner mere rhetoric. At NEXT, I can honestly say to my clients and prospects, "I will only present what will truly be in your best interest." The culture of NEXT and the leadership of its management team is one built on integrity.
