“I found the management team of Vanderbilt Securities to be uncommonly flexible and accommodating in meeting the unique business needs of my advisory firm and the investment needs of my clients. Combined with the firm’s own entrepreneurial spirit and the sincerity of its local owners and management team, there really wasn’t another broker/dealer that provided anywhere close to the level of confidence and inspiration that I similarly seek to provide to prospective clients of my firm.” – Jeffrey J. Brown CFPⓇ
“Jeff’s holistic approach to finance and coaching fits Vanderbilt’s core values of being a forward-thinking firm and going the extra mile for the clients. He is the perfect fit for our firm.” – Heidi Distante, Chief Executive Officer
