Overview of BB&T Scott & Stringfellow

BB&T Scott & Stringfellow offers financial advisors and clients the best of both worlds: small enough to provide unparalleled service and direct access to key decision makers, yet large enough to offer the depth and breadth of resources and solutions necessary to support client needs. The firm’s culture truly merges high touch with high tech.

Our success largely depends on addressing three important associate needs – environment, compensation and benefits. We have created an environment that places an emphasis on feedback from the financial advisor community. Our senior managers are accessible at all levels and every key management decision is made considering the effect on our clients and financial advisors. Our production-based compensation package is highly competitive in the industry and rewards our financial advisors’ contributions to the firm’s success. Our benefits program leverages the size of BB&T to offer a comprehensive and flexible menu that focuses on every aspect of well-being.
