• FSI Broker-Dealer Financial Performance and Compensation Study

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

    The Study provides detailed benchmarking data of the independent broker-dealer community. It is issued in two separate reports — one analyzing the financial performance of the broker-dealer firms and the other addressing the compensation of broker-dealer home office personnel.

    How to Participate

    FSI Broker-Dealer members are encouraged to participate in both parts of 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 Broker-Dealer 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.

    Participant Benefits

    Study participants will receive:

    • A complimentary copy of the report(s) for which they submit survey data;
    • A confidential customized Benchmark Performance Report which compares their own firm’s metrics with industry averages; and
    • A complimentary one-hour telephone consultation with the Study provider, FA Insight.

    Complimentary Study Reports will be distributed to all participants in early August.

    How to Purchase

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