*Ed Slott's Advisory Group is a group of financial professionals who pay a fee to attend a seminar that explores regulations, tax updates, and other issues regarding individual retirement accounts. MDRT Membership is based on production and it does not qualify a financial professional to provide investment recommendations or advice. Inclusion of a wealth manager in any award program is not indicative of future investment success. Ed Slott's Advisory Group, MDRT, and United Capital, are all separate and unrelated companies.
