FAIRFIELD, Iowa--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 4, 2018--Cambridge is pleased to report Investment Advisor magazine announced the firm as a 2018 Broker-Dealer of the Year in Division IV 1, the division representing independent broker-dealers with more than 1,000 producing advisors. The honor is based on the results of an annual poll of advisors conducted by the magazine earlier this year. Cambridge has earned this honor for the 11 th time, previously being recognized in 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2010, 2008, and 2007 as Broker-Dealer of the Year in Division IV and in 2003 for Division III.

“We take great pride in earning Broker-Dealer of the Year because it is a prestigious honor based on the responses from the advisors choosing Cambridge to support their independent businesses,” said President and Chief Executive Officer Amy Webber. “Our purpose is to make a difference in the lives of our advisors, their clients, and our associates; and this award is an important validation of our efforts. We extend our heartfelt thanks to our advisors and our associates for the many successes we enjoy, and we are grateful for their dedication in serving investing clients.”

Cambridge views the Broker-Dealer of the Year honor as a key measure of achievement in its commitment to continually raise standards of excellence even higher in serving those who serve others. Cambridge is the only firm honored with being recognized 11 times as a Broker-Dealer of the Year, and this honor is based on receiving advisor feedback in 15 categories from the Broker-Dealer of the Year awards criteria. Independent financial advisors cast ballots, and the broker-dealers that gained the highest composite scores were awarded the honors in four different divisions based on their number of producing advisors. The Broker-Dealer of the Year is profiled in Investment Advisor’s September 2018 print issue and in the digital edition posted online via ThinkAdvisor.com.
