In addition to the team you will meet below, our resources include our Registered Investment Adviser and Broker-Dealer, Cambridge Investment Research, and our Office of Supervisory Jurisdiction, Baker Wealth Management of Charlotte, NC. Cambridge, headquartered in Fairfield, Iowa, is a truly independent firm that makes available to its financial professionals a wide range of non-proprietary products.

We don’t “sell” for a parent company, so when we make a recommendation, it is because it is in the client’s best interest.

We work for our clients. Period.
