Cambridge Investment Research, Inc.

Brent Dees Financial Planning has partnered with Cambridge Investment Research, Inc. (Cambridge). As a leading independent broker-dealer, Cambridge allows us to offer unbiased recommendations and impartial guidance as well as the freedom to structure our business in a manner that best serves our clients. Together, Brent Dees Financial Planning and Cambridge focus on a common priority – you.

Cambridge believes in the entrepreneurial spirit of the financial professional. Instead of asking us to fit into a mold of how it thinks we should do business, Cambridge empowers us with a vast menu of compliance-friendly programs, products, and services. This enables us to customize strategies designed to meet your one-of-a-kind financial needs.

Cambridge is owned entirely by its management and financial professionals. Its executive leadership has spent more than 20 years building a legal structure, business plan, and a management team with the goal of remaining privately owned.

Program participants meet for eight to 10 hours each quarter over the span of three years. The group collaborates to work on understanding their business, proper goal setting, clarification of goals, and developing a 90-day strategic plan.
