Broker Dealer Financial Services to Become OSJ for Cambridge Investment Research

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC:

Independent broker-dealer, Broker Dealer Financial Services, has announced that starting at the end of October its 150 reps and advisers will become a Cambridge Investment Research Office of Supervisory Jurisdiction (OSJ).

Broker Dealer Financial Services with $3.5 billion in assets and $20 million in annual revenue has been the latest pickup by Cambridge, one of the largest independent contractor firms in the United States.

Although the terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed, Broker Dealer Financial Services will become an enterprise branch, called a "Super OSJ."

The acquisition by Cambridge comes at a time when broker-dealers such as Broker Dealer Financial Services are looking to offload costs due to rising compliance and regulatory expenses.

Advisors seeking to transition to or from either firm should contact Eccleston Law to plan the transition.
