Testimonials and success stories of what a few of our financial advisors have to say about our firm.


Barb, Lighthouse Advisors, LLC

1) THE PEOPLE - You couldn’t ask for a greater group of individuals to work with. Collectively I have found them to be hard-working, conscientious and thoughtful. They treat me with the same consideration and service that I strive to provide MY clients, and I like that!
2) THEIR SIZE - I have found that bigger is NOT better when it comes to a Broker-Dealer. I appreciate that they are small enough that I can easily communicate with any department I need support from. This includes their compliance department. It has been a breath of fresh air to work with a compliance department where open communication is fostered and where I am helped to run my business with the expert guidance needed to protect my client’s best interest and mine as well
3) THEIR PARTNERSHIPS - Though BDFS is smaller in size, the resources available to me as a broker are vast. I have numerous platforms to choose from that best fit the needs of my client base and of my business structure; a smaller company providing a more personal touch, coupled with the resources of a larger firm is a perfect fit for me
4) THEIR PHILOSOPHY - I have found that they truly value and appreciate the role of the Independent Financial Advisor and they consistently work to nourish that relationship
5) THEIR VISION - They tirelessly look for ways to be a stronger support to their Advisors, just as I am constantly looking for ways to BE a better Advisor”

With the firm since 2009

Tonya, Lone Star Investment, LLC

“Moving my book of business to BDFS/IAC was one of the best business decisions I have made. Not only do they offer a great commission payout schedule but their back office support is phenomenal. As an Independent in a one advisor office, back office support is crucial to me. BDFS/ IAC have the BEST I have ever worked with in my career. I have found my FOREVER Broker Dealer!”

Ryan, Capital Financial Partners

"Our team made the decision to partner with Investment Advisors Corp. because they allowed us the freedom to build and manage our practice on our own terms, while providing the support, tools and resources needed to best serve our clients."

With the firm since 2014

David, CFP®, Investment Office, First Security Bank & Trust

“Many firms have presented us with the opportunity for a higher payout or grand marketing concepts, but none have been able to match the ability to resolve problems in a timely and efficient manner. The brokerage business is very relationship oriented, and the firm understands and has the ability to solve our customers’ problems quickly and accurately. This helps to make our customers feel taken care of and helps us to continue our existing relationships and add new ones.”

With the firm since 1993

Austin, Executive Vice President, Grinnell State Bank

“They have been a wonderful partner in providing our bank with a strategic opportunity for growth. The assistance we received in education and marketing has been extremely valuable.”
