Helping you focus on what matters, grow your business, and cut costs

Your clients have high expectations, your business needs to grow, and you want to expand your research resources. All while keeping costs low. Callan’s Independent Adviser Group (IAG) can help.

We’re focused on helping firms like yours stand out in a crowded marketplace, become more efficient, and grow while focusing on the needs of your clients.

Our dedicated consultants work with a select number of independent investment advisers and middle-market consulting firms. When you partner with us, you’ll get access to the same investment and implementation resources that our Callan investment consultants have. It’s like having a large, deep bench of tenured research specialists without having to hire them.
