CHARLOTTE, N.C. – December 13, 2021 – Independent Advisor Alliance (IAA), an office of supervisory jurisdiction on LPL Financial LLC’s hybrid registered investment advisor platform, announced today that Way & Way has joined its network of independent advisors.
Comprised of Dennis and Reese Way, this father-son team was previously with Stephens Inc. Together, they bring a combined 40 plus years of comprehensive wealth management services to clients in Columbia, SC, and the surrounding regions.
