Hawaii advisors say custodian-neutral environment, technology critical to IBD move

Three advisor group joins boutique broker-dealer/RIA

SCF Securities announced Thursday that three Kauai-based advisors have transitioned to independent broker-dealer SCF Securities and its custodian-neutral corporate RIA, SCF Investment Advisors.

The three man team has offices in Lihue, on the island of Kauai, and Honolulu, on the island of Oahu. They collectively manage approximately $60 million in assets.

The advisors’ ability to work with multiple custodians through a single integrated technology platform was critical to their selection of SCF as a broker-dealer/RIA partner. SCF’s Blue Diamond Connect™ technology provides everything they need and — unlike the technology at their previous firm — allows the advisor team to rebrand the complete client experience to fully align with its DBA.

The entire offering was better at SCF, the team claims. The compensation package was attractive, but the firm’s commitment to service also served as a key factor. At their previous firm, compliance approval could take weeks. At SCF, however, the level of responsiveness from compliance personnel and the entire back office staff will positively impact the efficiency of the team’s financial practice.
