Our Broker Dealer

We have chosen to offer securities, investment advisory services, and insurance through our broker dealer MML Investor Services (MMLIS) and MassMutual. MassMutual was founded in 1851 and has always had a client obsessive corporate philosophy. Their focus on client’s long-term interests has allowed them to accumulate over $200 billion of assets under management through MML Investor Services and consistently pay dividends to their policyowners since the 1860s (though they are not guaranteed). The strength, longevity, and consistent track record of our broker dealer helps give us the ability to think big, act small, and deliver the best for our clients.
