Sprague Signs with Cetera Advisor Networks

Los Angeles, CA – Cetera Advisor Networks, formerly Financial Network Investment Corporation, today announced the signing of Scott A. Sprague, CLU, ChFC, CFP, an independent financial advisor based in San Ramon, Calif. Sprague is the founder of Sprague Wealth Solutions LLC, a comprehensive financial planning firm, and he oversees approximately $110 million in total client assets.

“Getting good value from a broker-dealer relationship is an important part of building a successful practice,” said Sprague. “And I discovered substantial value with Cetera Advisor Networks. Additionally, the assistance with my transition was very helpful, making the process much easier than I expected.”

Sprague joins Cetera Advisor Network’s BAR Region, led by John Brackett.

“We’re really glad Scott joined us. He’s the kind of seasoned advisor that BAR hopes to attract,” said BAR Financial Vice President Greg R. Brackett. “Scott has built a strong wealth management practice as part of his comprehensive offering to clients, which makes him a great fit in our region.”

Sprague, an Oregon State University alumnus, operates a consultative practice that does a mix of fee-based financial planning, portfolio allocation and risk management. He began his career 25 years ago in San Francisco.

“The culture at Cetera has been a big advantage since coming over,” he said. “They do the right thing. And when I call the home office, I hear friendly voices on the other end.”
