Based on 2018 revenue data, we have compiled a list of the top 5 broker dealers/networks for 2019, and the usual suspects dominated the top of the list once again. LPL Financial, Ameriprise Financial Services and Raymond James were first, second and third, respectively, which mimics 2018 rankings exactly. Cetera Financial Group and Advisor Group's member firms combined revenues bring them into the fourth and fifth positions.
We are excited to announce that we have added 15 independent broker dealers to the IFS platform. These BDs have chosen the IFS platform to transform and modernize their brokerage operations and are gaining the efficiencies, enhanced service capabilities and digital experiences that IFS delivers. With the addition of these firms to its client roster, IFS is adding over 22,000 advisors to the platform and extending the reach of digital enablement to their clients.
