We found all of that and more with Advisor Group and Royal Alliance, where there is a clear belief in the power of our ‘team of teams’ approach. From the outset, Royal Alliance stood out to PCRG as the top firm for Super-OSJ groups. Combining Royal Alliance’s unparalleled expertise in serving Super-OSJs with Advisor Group’s industry-leading technology, practice management, acquisition financing and hands-on recruiting support through the firm’s innovative Branch Builder program creates an incredibly compelling value proposition for independent groups like PCRG.”

We welcome PCRG to the Royal Alliance and Advisor Group family, and we look forward to helping them embark upon a new stage of growth and success for their entire group.”
