You should work with Packerland because you get to choose how your business operates. We don't require you to purchase tools and technology you don't intend to use, which results in Packerland having one of the highest payouts, lowest fees, and best customer service in the industry. We'd like to say that we cultivate a custom approach for each advisor, but the truth is, each tailored solution is provided by YOU and the unique needs of your business. We give our representatives the freedom to invest in and run their businesses independently without overbearing mandates, but that doesn't mean you aren't without support! If you need help figuring out the best partners, technology, or products, we are here to help: you are our #1 priority. This flexible and simple business model and culture has proven successful for over 300 representatives who have signed on with us across the country since 1994.

No need to pay for financial tools you don't need or use. Instead, select what will have the best impact on your business. No matter the industry, communication is king; therefore, we need consistency in some systems, however you get to decide where you spend your technology budget:

  • Fill out applications by hand, Laser App, or fillable PDF.
  • Submit paperwork by email, mail, or fax.
  • Streamline client communication using the tools that work best for you. We suggest DocuSign and LaserApp, and we're happy to help get you up and running with these or other tools, IF you want them for your business.
  • Decide what systems works best for you in terms of managing client assets, portfolio analysis, financial planning, and automated marketing communications.

OBA-Friendly Culture

We understand the benefits that drew you to adding wealth management to your practice. We also understand the challenges. Allow Packerland to help you turn those into the opportunities you need to thrive. We're proud many representatives with OBAs call us “a breath of fresh air.”  

Gross-Dealer Concession (GDC)

Representatives with a GDC of $20,000-$150,000 often get over-looked, but not at Packerland. Regardless of your business size, accomplishment deserves recognition. Reap the benefits of your hard work and client dedication. Get paid accurately and weekly at one of the most competitive rates in the industry.

I am finally affiliated with a broker-dealer that meets my expectations. I encourage all tax professionals to partner with Packerland, they are everything you want in a broker-dealer. They allow me to focus on MY business, such a breath of fresh air. I feel so at ease with Packerland.
