Fairfield, IA – August 24, 2016 – Cambridge reported that Investment Advisor magazine has announced Cambridge as ‘2016 Broker-Dealer of the Year in Division IV1’ – the division representing independent broker-dealers with over 1,000 producing advisors. The honor is based on the results of the annual poll of advisors conducted by the magazine in June of this year. Cambridge has earned this honor for the ninth time, previously honored in 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2010, 2008, and 2007 as Broker-Dealer of the Year in Division IV and in 2003 for Division III.

“It’s an honor to be named Broker-Dealer of the Year by Investment Advisor magazine,” said Chairman and CEO Eric Schwartz. “We earn this honor when Cambridge’s independent financial advisors value our services and take time from their independent businesses to engage in this poll. There is no greater reward in the service business than being valued for your services. Earning the respect of our advisors is our greatest achievement.”

For Cambridge, the Broker-Dealer of the Year honor is a key measure of success along with the firm’s annual satisfaction survey and other measures that are factored into continually raising Cambridge’s high standards.

Cambridge’s honor is based on receiving high marks in all categories. Registered representatives cast ballots, and the broker-dealers that gained the highest composite scores were awarded the honors in four different divisions based on their number of producing advisors.
