• FSI Financial Performance and Compensation Study

    An important and valuable benefit of FSI Firm membership is the opportunity to participate in the FSI Financial Performance and Compensation Study.

    The Study provides detailed benchmarking data of independent financial services firms. It has two components — one analyzing the financial performance of broker-dealer/RIA firms and the other addressing the compensation of their home office personnel.

    How to Participate

    FSI firm members are encouraged to participate in the Study. The results are presented in the aggregate, with no identifying firm information, so participants may rest assured that their data will remain confidential.

    Only FSI member firms are eligible to participate in the survey or receive a copy of the Study. It is not available for purchase to anyone else. The 2015 survey is now closed. If you completed the survey, a representative from your firm should have received a copy of the Study report. If your firm participated but has not yet received a copy, please contact Kathryn Anderson, Director of Corporate Relations.

    The 2016 Study will begin fielding surveys in the spring. FSI member firm CEOs will be alerted via email when the survey is open.

    Participant Benefits

    Study participants receive a complimentary copy of the Study report. Complimentary Study Reports for 2015 were distributed in August.

    How to Purchase

    FSI firm members who did not participate in the 2015 Study may purchase the Study at a price of $2,000 for any one report, or $3,500 for both.
