About Broker Village

We Help Firms Increase Profits and Limit the Potential for Liability

Broker Village is an analytics and consulting firm. We serve the retail financial services industry. We create decision-making tools and services for executives, financial advisors, and regulators. The tools analyze product pricing, practice management, and financial planning options. As better decisions are made, an investor’s wealth and a firm’s profits may rise. A firm also can limit its liabilities.

Our analytics are widely used by regulators. We power seven FINRA tools, including the standard-setting Fund Analyzer. Our clients and regulators see the exact same results. Those results are audited by CPAs, a CFA, and a securities lawyer. That’s high-level compliance comfort!

Unique Optics Help Everyone Make Better Decisions

Consider our Trade and Compliance Analyzer. It’s a risk assessment tool for executives and advisors. It models mutual fund and ETF trades in terms of account value, cost, and advisor pay. No other tool is like it.

 

For any trade, know in advance if account value is maximized, cost is minimized, and conflicts are eliminated. In an arbitration, know in advance if the math supports your trade or if the opposing claim has merit. It’s better to be in command of the math than a victim of it.

 

This tool can satisfy regulatory mandates, like those under SEC Regulation Best Interest. If conflict of interest, reverse churning, or prohibited transaction issues exist, you have the optics to see them and tools to fix them.

With our practice management tools, advisor productivity may rise. So will practice value. Sales managers implore advisors to partner up, move to fees, or work the back-of-a-book. The merits now can be quantified, making the advice more compelling.

Our planning tools focus on mortgages and college savings. Which loan or savings strategy is best? All options are costly and tax-sensitive. Making the right decision saves an investor thousands of dollars. That justifies working with a full-service advisor and their fees.

Fast and Easy to Implement

When licensing our tools, we make your life easy. You go live in a few days. Run them on your servers or ours. Tools are part of an overall package that includes training, support, audits, and customized sales material.  

With our consulting services, again, we make life easy. We help you analyze complex issues and consider alternatives before you commit to action. Then we move quickly and accurately.
