PROMINENT FINANCIAL ADVISORS IN HARTFORD JOIN INDEPENDENT FINANCIAL GROUP, LLC
San Diego, CA – Independent Financial Group, LLC (IFG) recently announced that Valark Financial Services has joined their independent broker-dealer. Valark Financial Services is located in Hartford, Connecticut and is led by Charles Wareham and fellow financial advisors, Craig Breitsprecher, W.Tom Polowy, and Vincent Winans.
“We are excited to have Charles, Craig, Tom and Vincent on board as registered representatives with IFG,” explains David Fischer, co-Founder and Managing Director of the San Diego based broker-dealer. He continues, “Valark’s dedication to their clients, coupled with the integrity with which they manage their business is consistent with IFG’s commitment to service excellence. We are thrilled they’ve chosen IFG as their brokerdealer.”
“After working with LPL Financial since 2005, we sought opportunities to improve services and streamline operations,” says Charles Wareham, Founder of Valark Financial Services. “After reviewing a number of options, we felt that Independent Financial Group was best suited to provide the services we need, but small enough to retain the human touch,” He adds, “We wanted to partner with a firm where we wouldn’t be a faceless office in a mass of tens of thousands. We wanted to work with a firm where we could still receive individualized attention.”
