Questar Capital Wins #1 Broker/Dealer Award
MINNEAPOLIS --(Business Wire)--
CapitalSM Corporation announced today that it
has earned the first-place ranking as the number one broker/dealer by Investment
Advisor magazine. Questar Capital won the award following a survey
among registered reps across the United States. This is the first time
Questar Capital has earned this recognition.
"This award validates our business focus, which is that we listen to our
registered representatives and we plug our business into theirs. We
allow our reps the freedom to run their business. Our strength comes
from listening to our customers, the reps," said Kevin Bachmann,
president, Questar Capital.
Another way Questar Capital stands out is its forward-focus. "We look
ahead with programs serving women registered representatives and unique
programs dedicated to recruiting and training the next generation of
registere representatives," Bachmann said, adding these well-received
programs are at the heart of this first-place win.
Competition Across All Broker/Dealers
The annual recognition and ranking is highly anticipated within the
independent broker/dealer community.
Investment Advisor's editorial staff oversee credentialed voters
who are asked to rate their own broker/dealers in 15 categories, such as
back-office and marketing support, compliance, communication and overall
performance and services.
The broker/dealers that receive the highest average rating from their
representatives are named Broker/Dealers of the Year in four divisions
based on their number of producing representatives. Questar Capital
ranked number one in Division III which is comprised of broker/dealers
ranging in size from 500 - 999 registered reps.
In addition, the leaders of the four winning broker/dealers constitute a
special broker/dealer advisory board at Investment Advisor for
the year and are featured in an extensive cover story in the September
2014 issue of Investment Advisor.
