“We believe that advisors should feel empowered when they come to our firm, and we are proud of the fact that we can encapsulate that through offering different affiliation channels such as W2, 1099, and RIA-only models,” said Jeff Gonyo, Divisional President, Southern Division3 and Head of Recruiting of Steward Partners. “This is evident of the new optionality that we have established in the last year and is something we deliberately constructed to ensure that Steward Partners is the right fit for any advisor.”
