Cetera Advisor Networks is an independent broker-dealer that was founded in 1983 as Financial Network Investment Corporation, a pioneer on the emergent independent-contractor broker-dealer scene. It was built on the belief that financial advisors could enjoy even greater success by joining high-performance teams offering local support and guidance, while sharing best practices across a nationwide network. From that belief, the firm's hallmark regional model was born – a model that built the firm into one of the nation's largest and most successful independent broker-dealers.
