Integration Instigated After Advisor Group’s Acquisition of Ladenburg Thalman
Securities America, which is a broker-dealer of the Advisor Group network, has completed integrating brokerage firms Investacorp, KMS Financial Securities, and Securities Services Network into its fold. All four were Ladenburg Thalman broker-dealers until Advisor Group acquired Ladenburg and its firms last year for $1.3B.
Triad Advisors, another former Ladenburg Thalman broker-dealer, will stay a standalone firm. The other Advisor Group broker-dealers include Woodbury Financial Services, FSC Securities, SagePoint Financial, Royal Alliance Associates, and FSC Securities Corporation.
The Advisor Group – Ladenburg Thalman merger has turned the Advisor Group into a network with over $450M in assets under management, almost 11,500 financial advisors, and $3B in yearly revenues.

Just because Investacorp, Securities Service Network, and KMS Financial Services are now part of Securities America does not mean that customers of these broker-dealers have lost the opportunity to pursue financial recovery if they sustained investment losses caused by broker fraud or negligence.

Advisor Group Firms Sold GPB Capital Private Placements
SSEK Law Firm has been actively investigating a number of Advisor Group firms for some time now over their sales of GPB private placements to customers. We’ve also filed several broker fraud cases against Triad Advisors (and many other broker-dealers) related to the GPB investments that were sold to investors.
Unfortunately, while thousands of GPB investors have likely lost their entire investment in the GPB funds, brokerage firms and their registered representatives earned many millions in commissions and other fees.
GPB Capital Holdings is accused of running a $1.8B Ponzi scam. A US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) fraud lawsuit, parallel criminal charges, other civil cases, as well as many broker fraud claims have already been brought.
