Choose the business model that's right for you

We know that every practice is unique. That's why we offer three distinct business models – each with the same product platform, integrated technology, elite advisor programs and back office support:

  • Independent – Ameriprise Independent Advisor
  • Branch – Ameriprise Advisor Group
  • Bank/Credit Union – Ameriprise Financial Institutions Group

As you consider which model best aligns with your goals and vision, you can consider going solo — or joining a team practice. 

  • Teaming — Benefit from the support and knowledge of a broad-based group of successful advisors 
  • Sole practitioner — Leverage local leadership and a comprehensive corporate office committed to your growth

No matter which business model you choose, you'll be backed by our Ultimate Advisor Partnership to help you grow. 

Ameriprise Advisor Group

As an employee advisor, you’ll leverage the support of our strong Fortune 500® brand and enjoy the employee benefits provided while focusing on building your practice while we manage the infrastructure, cover the overhead costs and handle the business details.  You’ll also benefit from the leadership and coaching you need to succeed, while enjoying the camaraderie and networking in a branch office.

Ameriprise Independent Advisor

Ameriprise is committed to providing you with the tools, support and resources to help you grow. We will partner with you to protect the practice you have built. You can also choose how to structure and where to locate your practice.
