I got a chance to go to First Investors, Ameriprise, MetLife, Scottrade, AIG, and a few local firms (Texas). Does anyone know much about First Investors? Their headquarters is on Wall Street but thats the only good thing I know about them. Not considering Ameriprise at all, MetLife is really not that appealing, Scottrade still uses the term stockbroker but you really are more like customer service. I want to be able to offer stocks and bonds etc. and I don't know if First Investors does that kind of business. What's up with having a series 6 in stead of a 7?
