Questar Capital Wins #1 Broker/Dealer Award
One of the fastest growing U.S. broker/dealers earns Investment Advisor’s top honor
MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Questar CapitalSM Corporation announced today that it has earned the first-place ranking as the number one broker/dealer by Investment Advisor magazine. Questar Capital won the award following a survey among registered reps across the United States. This is the first time Questar Capital has earned this recognition.
“We look ahead with programs serving women registered representatives and unique programs dedicated to recruiting and training the next generation of registered representatives”
“This award validates our business focus, which is that we listen to our registered representatives and we plug our business into theirs. We allow our reps the freedom to run their business. Our strength comes from listening to our customers, the reps,” said Kevin Bachmann, president, Questar Capital.
Another way Questar Capital stands out is its forward-focus. “We look ahead with programs serving women registered representatives and unique programs dedicated to recruiting and training the next generation of registered representatives,” Bachmann said, adding these well-received programs are at the heart of this first-place win.
Competition Across All Broker/Dealers
The annual recognition and ranking is highly anticipated within the independent broker/dealer community.

Questar Capital ranked number one in Division III which is comprised of broker/dealers ranging in size from 500 - 999 registered reps.
In addition, the leaders of the four winning broker/dealers constitute a special broker/dealer advisory board at Investment Advisor for the year and are featured in an extensive cover story in the September 2014 issue of Investment Advisor.
Earlier in 2014, Questar Capital was identified as one of the fastest growing broker/dealers in the United States by InvestmentNews and Financial Planning.
