Strategic Alliances and Partnerships

Strategic Alliances

AK Advisory Partners has formed a number of strategic alliances and partnerships with other firms that serve the financial services industry. The alliances are strictly referral relationships, while AK Advisory Partners has an equity interest in the partnerships. Advisory Partners and its alliance partners are completely independent of each other from a control and ownership perspective.
