“I am honored and pleased to make the top 100 list of a firm such as American Portfolios”, Bell stated. “This is indeed a validation of our business model and our decision to associate with American Portfolios in May 2015.” American Portfolios has been selected as Broker/Dealer of the Year in 2017 for the third consecutive year by Investment Advisor magazine. In addition, the firm was named one of the best firms to work for in New York State in 2018 for the third year in a row.

We have our own investment portfolios managed entirely in-house. I saw affiliation with American Portfolios as the best way to execute this unique approach and this standing helps verify that choice. Many firms claim to be “independent,” but are not. We really do have synergies with American Portfolios not available anyplace else.”
