About Us_History

Anderson Financial Network was founded in Prospect, Kentucky, in 2004 after Walt despaired of working for a parent company that kept growing larger and larger, inevitably losing its personal touch.

So Walt decided to set out on his own and create the type of firm he thought was needed in this day and age of rushed and sometimes impersonal service. That decision proved to be ahead of the curve, as the trend in the industry today is for more and more financial consultants to choose the independent route.

Walt chose to partner with Commonwealth Financial Network®, the largest privately held Registered Investment Adviser–broker/dealer in the United States. Being with an independent broker/dealer means there is no capital-markets side. Commonwealth does not issue stocks and bonds for corporations. Unlike large Wall Street firms, we are able to provide objective financial advice. Our commitment in every aspect of our business is to put the client’s interest first, and Walt holds the AIF® designation as part of this commitment.
