The firm represents individual and corporate clients including 4,500 participants and 100 small-company 401(k) plans. It specializes in developing long-term financial strategies and retirement planning options for individuals, with a focus on continuing financial education.

"We're thrilled to be joining the team at FSC Securities. Their support network for advisers is unparalleled," says Financial Independence co-founder and senior partner Bill Kumm. "Steve and I have been working together for nearly 30 years, with a shared mission of helping people achieve financial independence by building, protecting, and transferring wealth. We're looking to grow, and with FSC, we'll be plugged into one of the most adept adviser networks in the country."
