Broker
A brokerage firm, also called a broker-dealer, is in the business of buying and selling securities—stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and certain other investment products—on behalf of its customers (as broker), for its own account (as dealer), or both.
Individuals who work for broker-dealers — the sales personnel are commonly referred to as brokers.

Investment Adviser
An investment adviser is paid for providing advice about securities to clients. In addition, some investment advisers manage investment portfolios and offer financial planning services.
It is common for a financial professional to act as both a broker and an investment adviser. Because of this, we include investment advisers on BrokerCheck, and provide links to the SEC's Investment Adviser Public Disclosure (IAPD) website so you can research further.

The information presented in BrokerCheck pertains only to experience in the securities industry. This individual is also an Investment Adviser. Please visit the Investment Adviser Public Disclosure (IAPD) website for more information.
