Direct access to leadership

Centennial Securities was started by a small group of independent thinkers who recognized there is no “one size fits all” approach to investing.

While some companies claim to be independent on paper, we live and breathe it each and every day. Our leadership team understands and accommodates independent thought and respects the unique drive it takes to build a successful practice. When you need us, all you have to do is pick up the phone.

You’re Backed by the Support of a Global Banking Leader

Since the day our doors opened more than 40 years ago, we have held steadfast to our mission to act in the best interest of our clients in order to provide premier products and outstanding service. In late 2018, Centennial Securities’ management team surveyed the firm to assess and evaluate its current clearing firm to determine the level of satisfaction of the custodial services available for our clients and advisors. In 2020, we made the decision to utilize RBC Clearing & Custody, a division of RBC Capital Markets, LLC.

RBC provides clearing and custody services for nearly 200 correspondent firms. We are confident this new chapter will provide key upticks for our clients in order to deliver comprehensive wealth management solutions. With that in mind, we have launched a best-in-class client portal with improvised tools, allowing you to collaborate more closely with your clients.

Technology to Complement Your Clients’ Needs

You’ll have access to our top-of-the-line technology platform, in addition to our team of dedicated professionals at our headquarters who interact directly with financial advisors and their support staff.

Our technology solutions allow you to be connected to an integrated platform, and you’ll be able to customize this platform for you and your team. These resources have been extensively tested against industry competition and we are confident such resources will help you take your business to the next level.

Mobility

You’ll have full access to your desktop and work phone – including client data – from our mobile services.

Client Access

Your clients have online access to their portfolios, including research, statement, and important market data.

Service Desk

If technology questions come up, we offer direct access to our support staff.
