ICM also offers a competitive opportunity to licensed and experienced advisors who have already been successful at building a book of business.  Our target market for this model is strictly transitional advisors who are established in the industry and looking for a new firm to help take their business to the next level through comprehensive planning tools, marketing resources, advanced training, and compliance support.

ICM provides the benefit of being affiliated with a private, boutique firm, combined with the back-office support of SagePoint Financial, one of the largest independent broker-dealers in the United States.  Transition bonuses and administrative support are available to qualified advisors joining our team.
