Welcome to the United Planners’ website. This section of our website is dedicated to providing potential clients and the clients of our Financial Service Representatives, information and important disclosures about their choice of Broker-Dealer firms.

Founded in 1987 and located in Scottsdale, Arizona, United Planners provides full brokerage, investment advisory, and insurance services to over 375 prestigious investment and financial planning professionals throughout the United States. We here at United Planners have over 150 years of collective experience among our senior management team. We are a member of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), as well as with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Securities Investment Protection Corporation (SIPC).

Our business philosophy is to provide the highest level of personalized investment advisory and securities brokerage services to a select group of consummate financial professionals. Our “client oriented” service and support coupled with our advanced technology offerings sets United Planners apart from other Broker-Dealer firms. Our vision and resolve is to be:

United Planners Ranked #7 in IBDs with Highest Producing Reps

As an Investment Advisory and Independent Broker-Dealer firm, we provide our Financial Service Representatives access to a wide array of non-proprietary investment products and support services which assist him or her in their practice. Because of this relationship we have with your Representative, you will complete a United Planners’ Client Agreement when establishing an investment account.

As a Broker-Dealer registered with FINRA and the SEC, we are subject to certain laws and regulations regarding you and your investment experience. Such information is confidential (please see our Privacy Policy which is available here in this section of our website or by request).

Although your relationship is mainly with your individual Financial Service Representative, there are a few times you will receive correspondence directly from United Planners. Your Client Agreement is established through us, and we will send you a letter to advise you of your account registration and financial profile. Each year end we will also send you a mailing which will allow you to update your personal or financial information. Changes or updates to these mailings can be made directly with your Financial Service Representative.

I want to personally thank you for taking the time to learn more about United Planners.
