We’re excited to announce our partnership with SSN, one of the nation’s industry leading independent broker dealers. We couldn’t be happier to help further their client focused mission and be a small part of their success. Here’s the press announcement.
KNOXVILLE, TN (January 5, 2016) – On January 5, 2016, Knoxville-based broker dealer firm Securities
Service Network, Inc. (SSN), a wholly owned subsidiary of Ladenburg Thalmann Financial Services Inc.
(NYSE MKT; LTS PrA), is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Nitrogen, the inventor of the Risk Number™. The alliance enables SSN advisors to access the award-winning risk alignment
platform at significant cost savings.
Nitrogen was recently named to the Forbes Fintech 50 list, and enables financial advisors to pinpoint
a client or prospect’s Risk Number, compare it with their current portfolio’s risk, and align it with
their target portfolio’s risk. By putting risk first in the discussion, advisors seek to build trust and
credibility with clients, drive alignment on risk expectations, and accelerate their client acquisition
and revenue productivity.
“This provides our advisors with a much improved way of helping clients look at risk,” said Corey
Keltner, Practice Development Specialist at SSN. “Nitrogen gives clients the visual tools to overcome
the greed and fear cycle that can ruin even the best financial plans.”
“Securities Service Network advisors have always been very client-focused, and we are excited to
equip them with the tools to put risk first in their conversations and drive alignment between clients
and their portfolios,” said Aaron Klein, CEO at Nitrogen. “SSN’s focus on making this technology more
accessible to their advisors is a demonstration of their commitment to constantly strengthening
outcomes for the investors who trust their firm.”
