Financial advisers Shannon Case and Mark Slattery have become registered representatives with independent broker-dealer Securities America, a wholly owned subsidiary of Ladenburg Thalmann Financial Services.
Case (pictured) joined the financial services industry in insurance in 1987 and in 1991 he earned his Series 7. Slattery joined him at a local firm following graduation from Creighton University that same year. In 1995, Case and Slattery joined Securities America and in 1997 they affiliated with American National Bank. After more than 10 years with Securities America, Case and Slattery moved their business to SII Investments in Wisconsin and formalised their partnership by founding CaseSlattery Wealth Partners in Omaha, Nebraska.
“We were never unhappy with Securities America,” Case says. “We just pursued an opportunity that emerged at the time, but kept in constant contact with leadership at Securities America.”
Case and Slattery moved their USD130m financial practice back to Securities America on 3 June.
“After having some great conversations last year, we felt the synergy was great and the time was right for our move back to Securities America,” Slattery says. “The more we researched what Securities America has to offer, the more we realised it was the right business decision to make.”
“We are proud to welcome Shannon Case and Mark Slattery back to the Securities America family,” says Gregg Johnson, senior vice president of branch office development and acquisitions. “We never like to see our advisors leave, but we always maintain open communication even after they have left. Through that communication, former advisors can see the continued growth of our company, and learn firsthand of our continued advances in technology and advisory platforms. This, coupled with a culture that we value greatly, can draw an advisor back to our firm, such as the case with Case and Slattery.”
