The Power of Dual Clearing

Securities America helps ensure your independence as a business person and professional financial advisor by providing the ability to clear business through two distinct platforms. Securities America has built strong relationships with National Financial Services, LLC, Member NYSE/SIPC and Pershing, LLC, member FINRA, NYSE, SIPC, and a subsidiary of The Bank of New York Mellon Corporation.

Equally powerful, these two different clearing platforms give you the ability to select the company that best meets your mix of business, your style of doing business and your personal preferences. You can go about your daily business assured that your practice and the safety of your clients’ assets will not be negatively impacted by a clearing conversion.
