We Empower Success
Our success is built on yours—our partner advisors, investors, and every person we’re proud to have work with us.
Distinctly Committed To Growth
We know growth is imperative for every advisor and investor. But it’s not just business or portfolio growth. It’s a mindset to evolve, reinvent, and innovate. These principles are the foundation of Kestra Financial.
Since 1997, we’ve partnered with sophisticated financial advisors who provide their clients with superior service. This focus on advisors led to our remarkable growth in the industry, and in 2016, triggered an opportunity to become independent.
Our independence has created even more flexibility today to do what’s right for our advisors and their clients. We’ve built an industry-leading technology platform and offer a wide range of tools and services, all to help them achieve their goals.
What We Do
We are a financial services platform that is more than simply a broker-dealer. We process investment transactions and provide investment advisory services, and we’re committed to helping advisors and investors achieve success.
We work alongside advisors to help pinpoint and reach specific business objectives as well as manage their back office operations. We’re proudly independent, which enables us to offer a wide range of tools, services, and support to help our advisors’ and their clients’ goals.
We’re regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and we help ensure our advisors’ businesses are compliant with regulatory guidelines.
