Our Broker Dealer

LKNFG operates independently of our broker dealer and custodians. This is important because it means we do not hold assets on behalf of clients.
Cambridge Investment Research serves as our Independent Broker-Dealer. We selected Cambridge as their core values closely align with our firm – Integrity, Commitment, Flexibility & Kindness. Cambridge has a long history of supporting independent advisors, and allow us to conduct business that puts our clients’ interests first. Our partnership also provides regulatory and compliance oversight, state of the art technology and cybersecurity, and ongoing insight and education in a complex industry.

Founded in 1981, in Fairfield, IA, Cambridge is one of the most respected firms in the industry. Today, Cambridge serves over 3,200 Financial Advisors with assets under advisement surpassing $100 Billion.

Our Custodians
