The firm’s singular focus on helping banks and credit unions, combined with the high quality of its technology platform and its proven track record of supporting the delivery of an exceptional service experience to advisors and their clients made this a very natural strategic alliance for our bank.”

Now that we have entered the fiduciary era, it’s clear that Cetera has the scale, resources and expertise that will enable our investment program to not only meet the rapidly evolving expectations of retail investors, but keep pace with the constant flow of changes coursing through the financial services industry.”
