Financial Representatives to Financial Advisors

Financial Representatives to Financial Advisors

At Thoroughbred Advisors our team consists of both Financial Representatives and Financial Advisors. The main difference between the two is additional licensing which allows the Financial Advisor to have access to more tools, including certain investments. When individuals who are new to our industry join our team, they first become Financial Representatives, then work towards attaining the licenses and certifications of becoming a Financial Advisor.
