Securities America Adds Branch With $100 Million In Client Assets

Stocks in this article: LTS

Securities America Inc., a subsidiary of Ladenburg Thalmann Financial Services Inc. (NYSE MKT: LTS), is pleased to announce the addition of the independent branch Clements Investment Group LLC of Durango, Colo.

Formerly with United Planners Financial Services, Clements Group has approximately $1.1 million in annual revenue and more than $100 million in client assets. With five financial advisors and four office staff, the Clements Group has its main office in Durango with an additional office in Farmington, N.M.

Jim Clements, founding owner of Clements Group, said the group chose Securities America because of the assistance and improvement the broker-dealer can provide with retirement plan regulations and 401(k) business management.

“We needed a partner that had a full line of services available to its advisors, especially from the retirement plans standpoint,” Clements said. “We are excited to be here, and we look forward to enhancements for our retirement plan line up, the ability to process business more effectively and support for meeting our goals for growth over the next couple years.”

Founded in 1981 to “help people retire,” the Clements Group advisors are committed to maintaining the highest standards of integrity and professionalism in their relationship with clients, and endeavor to know and understand clients’ financial situations while providing them with high quality information, services and products to help them reach their retirement goals.

“The Clements Group went through an exhaustive due diligence process that included many top-tier broker-dealers in the independent space,” said Gregg Johnson, senior vice president of branch office development and acquisitions. “We are extremely pleased that they chose to become a part of the Securities America family. We are working closely with them to ensure a smooth transition and to provide them with our extensive business growth and practice management resources.”
