We believe clients come first, and we all need the freedom to customize our business, our way, to best serve our clients.
We Believe Every Journey is Important
Purpose to Make a Difference
Cambridge’s purpose is to make a difference in the lives of our advisors, their clients, and our associates. Our values are integrity, commitment, flexibility, and kindness, and these values have served us well for 38 years.¹
Over 3,300 independent financial professionals choose Cambridge for financial solutions and services, and they serve hundreds of thousands of investing clients across the country through their independent businesses.
Our high standards must always move even higher, but earning a 9 out of 10 annual advisor satisfaction rating, together with being voted Broker-Dealer of the Year¹ 11 times and a Top Workplace² 8 times represents a satisfaction trifecta as measured by advisors and associates. We are in the business of serving others, and we are grateful for their confidence, trust, appreciation, and perhaps most importantly, our shared sense of purpose and values.
Culture Counts and Values Matter Most
We believe a firm’s culture influences its reputation. We think you can take a hard look at a firm’s stated purpose and values and compare that to how the firm’s management and associates engage with financial professionals and manage business activity. Since our earliest days, we’ve been dedicated to our values of integrity, commitment, flexibility, and kindness. These values guide our decisions and shape our efforts on behalf of independent financial professionals and their investing clients.
We are proud that financial professionals choosing Cambridge share our values and our purpose to make a difference, while embracing an independent mindset, as they seek to best serve their investing clients.
