BEING INDEPENDENT

The Independent Financial Advisor

Being independent, while at the same time having the size and national presence of Commonwealth Financial Network (Commonwealth) behind us, is extremely important to Edwards & Owens Financial Strategies and Wealth Management and is one of the instrumental reasons we decided to align ourselves with Commonwealth Financial Network as our broker/dealer.

We are free to act in your best interest, helping you follow the best course of action to meet your financial goals - without any pressure to promote a particular product or strategy. We at Edwards & Owens do not offer any proprietary investment products. We remain free to advise our clients on which investment vehicles best suit their needs, without favoring one product over another. It's a model that differs from that of other, larger financial firms known as wirehouses, whose representatives are accountable not just to their clients but also to the parent company that employs them.

Having access to a large, privately-held independent broker/dealer brings a high level of assurance to our clients. You'll find there are many levels of experienced people and valuable resources standing behind you at Edwards & Owens.

The people who work at Edwards & Owens have the knowledge and experience needed to help you pursue your financial goals. As a client centered firm, our staff is always ready to address your concerns, answer your questions, and put you at ease.
