The Best of Both Worlds

You want to run your own business, but you don’t want to be bogged down by complicated operations and expensive overhead. You also want to work for a company where you feel appreciated. Sound familiar?

Join Empire Financial Advisors, an independent financial services firm specializing in building independence for advisors like you. We have no allegiance to specific brands or products, so you can offer your clients comprehensive strategies for their needs.

Joining Empire Financial Advisors also means you have a built-in support team and important resources that help your business run smoothly and effectively.

Even More Reasons to Join Empire Financial Advisors

The Empire Financial Advisors leadership team has more than 50 years of experience in business operations—and we’ve invested a lot of time building a support system that far exceeds those of most individual advisors. That means you can focus on what you do best: building your clients financial independence. Empire Financial Advisors offers:

  • A collaborative, friendly environment in a well-established company
  • The independence you want with the business support you need
  • A built-in “knowledge hub” of collective resources—from operations and compliance to administrative and marketing support
  • Broad and specialized products and services for all types of clients
  • Professionals dedicated to providing comprehensive strategies for financial well-being
  • The largest independent broker-dealer network in the country (As reported by Financial Planning magazine, June 1996-2018, based on total revenue)


Our leaders, Tom and Gil, work hard to help individual advisors be as successful as possible with their business. Empire Financial Advisors’ goal is to strengthen the company by helping each advisor successfully run and grow their practices.
