“IFS Securities values the art of independent thinking,” explains IFS Securities President and CEO Alex McKenzie. “We know what it takes to support independent advisors as they build their own businesses and to deliver investment insights for institutional clients,” McKenzie continues. 

Founded in Pennsylvania in 1993, the firm became a member of FINRA in 1996.  McKenzie became owner of the firm in 2007.  In addition to FINRA, the firm is also a member of MSRB and SIPC.
