"Heightening the visibility of our clients with solutions that facilitate scalable growth is a key part of our strategic plan," said Brian Nielsen, Chief Executive Officer of Northern Lights Distributors. "Redesigning our website is just one component of this initiative—we will continue to provide interactive tools and informative content to assist advisors in navigating the distribution universe."

The enhanced website provides, among other features, detailed explanations of the four cornerstones of distribution addressed by NLD in customized fund distribution plans—Competitive Edge, Marketing Resources, Distribution Planning and Partner Development. All advisors, regardless of whether or not they have retained NLD, can use this section of the website to learn better methods for identifying and engaging target investors and strategic partners, and also to find ways to improve weaknesses in their funds' distribution plans.

"Distribution is much more complex than it appears, as intermediary platform providers have distinct requirements for marketing and sponsorship processes," said Alma Piscitello, Senior Vice President and Head of Strategic Relationships at Northern Lights Distributors. "We remain committed to educating advisors about distribution processes and channels, and guiding them on how to effectively discern and engage with partners that can help their funds grow."

NLD's site also includes detailed biographies of its strategic relationship team members, and outlines how they work alongside advisors to craft and implement marketing and distribution plans. The firm's relationship managers serve as dedicated advocates who connect advisors with broker-dealers to introduce new product opportunities, establish selling agreements, facilitate National Securities Clearing Corp. trading, prepare and submit advertising materials to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority for review, and process 12b-1 payments.
