Deitch and was incorporated under the name Commonwealth Equity Services. In 1999, the name Commonwealth Financial Network was adopted. Deitch remains Chairman of the firm. The firm is owned and controlled by its 11 managing principals.
Commonwealth has approximately 1,600 independent financial advisors and financial planners for whom it serves as a "back office," processing investment transactions on behalf of their clients, and to whom the firm provides resources and consulting services to support the advisors’ businesses.
