Integrity first, and everything else follows

Dan D’Alio and Rich Caputo started EmployShare in 1996, bringing together years of experience in the insurance and outsourcing industries. They realized there was no one efficiently and effectively helping advisors manage and protect their practices. Most financial advisory practices are closely held businesses, operating in a heavily regulated environment and subject to the same employment laws as any other small business. It’s a lot for an advisor to personally handle, especially as their business grows and they bring on staff and other resources.  Rich and Dan provide a wrap-around all-encompassing employer service model unique in the industry. High integrity, high-touch service is their hallmark.  And they’ve got a great team ready to help you manage and protect your practice.
