Independent But Not Alone We believe being independent financial planners allows us to offer personalized, objective advice to our clients.But we have also come to understand that being independent does not mean being alone.Integrated Wealth Strategies (IWS) is a founding member of Integrated Financial Group, an Atlanta-based consortium of independent financial planners from across the country. Since its inception in 2003, the Consortium has maintained a culture of passionate, strictly vetted independent members who support the notion that many minds are greater than one. This Consortium of expertise is called the Brain Trust.Our affiliation with this professional group is invaluable; it gives us access to a network of talented, like-minded financial planners who share strategies, best practices, and advice. Our clients benefit from the collective expertise of the Brain Trust in addition to the focused attention they receive from our team at Integrated Wealth Strategies.Today, Integrated Financial Group is one of the largest independent financial planning consortiums in Atlanta, with over $2.2 billion in brokerage and advisory assets through LPL Financial and over $1.4 billion in assets under management through its separate registered investment advisor, IFG Advisory, LLC as of 3/1/17. With over 80 Consortium Members owning firms across 10 states, we form a diverse, experienced, and qualified group of professionals.
