I was looking for a brokerdealer that was a good size – but not so big that I would be a small fish in a big pond.” He continues, “I was looking for a place where my voice would be heard, where my vote would matter.” He adds, “ I wanted to be with an established firm, with the right culture and a can-do attitude, moving in the right direction. I look forward to building this 401K division with [IFG].”
“We’re honored to have David and his experienced team at Pension Advisors on board with Independent Financial Group,” comments David A. Fischer, CMO and Managing Director of the firm.

This is the philosophy on which our company was based. We look forward to bringing aboard more like-minded individuals like David, specifically those who have been successful in the retirement space.”
