I want you to be in a better, safer, more secure financial position.

We’ll get there by working together.

Whether you are experiencing major life changes, planning for retirement, or simply deciding where to invest and save your money, a financial professional can advise you, the investing client, on how to best prepare your finances for the future. Selecting an independent financial professional is an important step to achieving your goals.

Services

At Allegro Wealth Advisors, we work with business owners, families, and individuals to clarify financial goals and create a financial plan to achieve them.

Our clients are resourceful self-starters, entrepreneurs, and professionals looking for reassurance and guidance to help ensure they’re on the right path toward financial success. We seek to alleviate their concerns, congratulate them on their successes, and work together to achieve even greater prosperity.

Every client will go through our comprehensive financial planning process, which analyzes existing assets and liabilities, client risk tolerance, tax rates, and legal documents to gain a holistic depiction of the client’s current financial situation. With this information and the client’s goals, we suggest strategies and investments in the following areas:

Financial planning

Investment management

Asset protection

Estate planning

Business succession

College planning

Retirement Planning

Charitable Planning

In addition to these financial strategies and solutions, we also act as a behavioral coach for our clients to help them save and plan for their goals. We build long-term relationships with our clients and treat everyone with the dignity and courtesy they deserve.

What is an independent financial professional?

Your independent financial professional is not an employee of an investment or financial services firm – they are an independent business owner. They have the freedom to structure their business in a manner that best serves their investing clients. Your independent financial professional has chosen to work with Cambridge Investment Group, Inc, a privately controlled financial solutions firm focused on serving independent financial advisors and their investing clients. Cambridge is also a national corporation with a registered investment adviser as well as an industry leading independent broker-dealer. Cambridge provides services to independent financial professionals that may include processing investment business, marketing assistance, business consulting, and education. In addition, Cambridge holds certain responsibilities for regulatory compliance and adherence to securities laws.

About Cambridge

Honored to be among the most respected firms in the industry, Cambridge is a 12-time honoree in the Broker-Dealer of the Year annual poll by Investment Advisor magazine1 and has earned an overall average of 9 out of 10 from our advisors based on Cambridge’s Advisor Satisfaction Survey over the last 20 years.

Ranked among the top 10 independent broker-dealers by revenue2, Cambridge remains strong and growing – in part due to our conservative financial strategies and the disciplined efforts of financial professionals in their independent businesses. In addition, we believe our long-term success is also due to the appeal of moderate business practices and traditional values.

In keeping with Cambridge’s longstanding focus on flexibility and choice, our financial solutions are designed to give independent financial professionals the ability to serve their clients according to their unique business model, while using multiple management styles based on the preferences of their investing clients. To best support independent financial professionals and their clients, we continue to support both fee-based and commission options, giving investing clients the freedom of choice in how they interact with their financial professional.

At Cambridge, our purpose is to make a difference in the lives of our advisors, their clients, and our associates. We support over 3,300 independent financial professionals nationwide who serve their hundreds of thousands of clients3. We are proud that advisors who share our core values of integrity, commitment, flexibility, and kindness choose Cambridge as their financial solutions firm. The advisors affiliated with Cambridge live and work in communities all across the country, servicing investing clients who reflect the unique demographics of their communities.

Why is private control and independence important?

You may be familiar with firms that are subsidiaries of commercial banks, investment banks, or investment companies. An independent, privately controlled firm is different because they generally do not underwrite securities, create research, or engage in investment banking. They allow financial advisors to offer non-proprietary products, such as mutual funds or life insurance, from a wide variety of companies. Many independent financial professionals choose to work with Cambridge because of their ability to provide investment advice and holistic financial and retirement planning guidance without expectations to sell proprietary products.
