About Cambridge Investment Research

Cambridge Investment Research, Inc. (Cambridge), headquartered in Fairfield, Iowa and founded in 1981 -is one of only two remaining independent, privately owned broker-dealers in the industry, with over $65 billion in assets under management and nearly 3,000 independent registered representatives serving thousands of clients across the country. Fully committed to remain employee-owned, Cambridge believes this is essential for stability and to offer truly independent advice with an unbiased view with regard to financial products to clients. As an industry leader devoted to the four core values of integrity, commitment, flexibility and kindness, Cambridge fosters an atmosphere and culture that allows their employee-associates and registered representatives alike to share and thrive in mutual success.

Additionally, Cambridge has been bestowed the honor of being named "Broker-Dealer of the Year" for six of the last eight years in Investment Advisor magazine's annual poll asking advisor-representatives to evaluate various attributes of their own broker-dealer.*
