I've looked at HD Vest as a way to add investments to my tax practice. I'm finishing up the EA next month and have a 7 from a previous position in a tax firm. I want to make sure there aren't other BDs I should also be looking at for my goals. I don't see myself as primarily an investment guy, but wish to offer investments that address a specific tax issue. (IRA contributions, LTC insurance, annuities, etc.) I'd like a BD with minimul production requirements and a "hands off" attitude to the type of products I'm recommending. I basically want ot offer the service as a convenience to tax cliennts and would like a BD that understands that my main focus is my tax practice. Recommendations or is HD Vest the way to go?
