Independent and Team Broker Support

Whether involved in investment banking or wealth management, individually or as a team, Niagara may be able to provide the necessary compliance and registration services to those who join the Platform without focusing on the overhead responsibilities of running your brokerage business.

As FINRA has intensified its focus over recent years on independent bankers and brokers who deal with private securities, requiring licensing with FINRA, much of the capital advisory work that was previously unlicensed is now required to be licensed and compliant with FINRA and SEC regulations. At the same time, the costs associated with creating and maintaining your own broker dealer have increased substantially. For small teams, especially, this can be a difficult and an obviously draining experience to both maintain compliance with FINRA and other regulators while trying to focus on business, regardless of whether your business is focused on investment banking or wealth management. Becoming registered with Niagara on the Niagara Platform can help ease your focus on the overall compliance risks and tasks associated with your business while providing the flexibility and independence you need to conduct your business successfully. We strive to provide the supervisory structure and report on your activities while you focus on your business within the comprehensive and efficient supervisory structure we provide for you to operate within.
