Securities America, a wealth management firm within Advisor Group’s network, reported that president and chief executive officer Jim Nagengast has been nominated to the large firm seat on the FINRA board of governors.
Nagengast was the first petition candidate to ever win election to the FINRA board of governors’ large firm seat, which he accomplished in the 2018 elections.
During a second three-year term, Nagengast seeks to continue to focus on increasing transparency, promoting diversity throughout the financial services industry, enhancing FINRA’s ability to work with its members and curtailing the practice of “rulemaking by enforcement.”
“I have been honored to represent my constituents among the FINRA member community throughout my first term on the board of governors, while at the same time advancing FINRA’s dual mission of protecting investors and supporting the integrity of the markets,” said Nagengast.
In addition to Securities America, the Advisor Group network also includes FSC Securities Corporation, Royal Alliance Associates, SagePoint Financial, Woodbury Financial Services, Triad Advisors, Investacorp, KMS Financial Services and Securities Service Network. Advisor Group serves approximately 11,300 financial professionals that oversee more than $450 billion in client assets.
Securities America is headquartered in Omaha and supports approximately 2,600 independent financial professionals.
