Wells Fargo Advisors Financial Network, the independent brokerage arm of Wells Fargo & Co, announced that their 1,250 independent financial advisors are now Financial Services Institute members.
The financial advisors’ first-year membership, which is usually $99 per person, is offered on a complimentary basis by the firm.
Kent Christian, the president of Wells Fargo Advisors Financial Network, applauds FSI’s advocacy efforts as a reason for their complimentary membership.
“We are committed to our membership in FSI,” Christian said in a statement. “Their advocacy efforts are imperative to the independent broker-dealer channel, and we believe their efforts should be front and center with our affiliated financial advisors.”
As part of their advocacy efforts, the lobbying group holds FSI Capitol Hill Day & National Discussions every year. This year, on May 12-14, all FSI members are invited to spend a full day as citizen lobbyists advocating on Capitol Hill.
Dale Brown, FSI’s President & CEO, says everything the organization does is aimed at increasing its advocacy success.
