Cadaret, Grant is an independent broker/dealer serving over 900 financial advisors located in over 500 branch offices across the United States. The firm was founded in 1985 by two financial advisors who shared a vision of independent thinking — giving advisors the freedom and ability to build investment portfolios based on their clients’ objectives, not the company’s. One of the largest truly independent broker/dealers in the country, Cadaret, Grant strives to meet the business requirements of both advisors and clients through exemplary service, first-rate technology, and support systems that maximize the power of fresh, innovative thinking focused exclusively on the personal success of each individual investor.
