The Equitable Bank Award for Multi-Office Advisor Network/Brokerage of the Year

“Being an independent advisor firm, our success is driven by advisors and what they do” – John Kelleway, IA Securities


IA SECURITIES has been on a path of rapid growth in recent years, and that momentum led to the firm being named Multi-Office Advisor Network/Brokerage of the Year. According to president John Kelleway, the win will help further iA’s growth trajectory. “We were a small dealer a few years ago, have been growing and are basically trying to remove the whole ‘best kept secret’ tag, and this is an acknowledgment of that,” he said.


Kelleway went on to praise iA’s advisors and their efforts. “We have some of the best advisors in the business, and watching the work they do with clients is an acknowledgment of what we are doing at the core.”


Damon Knights, head of deposits at award sponsor Equitable Bank, added: “The impression that the [finalists] give to the market [and] the advisors around AUM growth, quality service and overall performance is important. When you think about who you want to be associated with, that’s the impression you want, and we’re really happy that iA won this year.”
