Our History

Celebrating 50+ years

With 50+ years in the financial services industry, AdvisorNet Financial can look back on several significant incarnations. Founded in 1959 as Strommen & Associates by Clair Strommen, we had 5 agents, one staff person and commission-based insurance and financial product sales of $20,000.

Through the 60s and 70s we added offices in Duluth and Wisconsin. By 1980, ownership had moved to Dan W. Anderson, Wayne C. Swenson and Robert Strommen. The firm added brokerage services and opened an office in Fargo. In 1986 when Robert Strommen left the firm, we changed our name to Swenson Anderson Associates, Inc.

Through the 80s and 90s Swenson Anderson continued to add associates and expand our services into employee benefits as well as back-office services for our team. We were a charter recipient of the Master Agency Award, and have continued to receive this “Top 100 Agency” recognition since the award’s inception in 1983. When Dan May joined the ownership team in 1997, we had 93 associates, 45 staff members and commission-based earnings of more than $11.7 million.

Over the last 10 years, the legacy of Wayne Swenson and Dan Anderson has been to create a trusted resource for the independent financial advisor, offering our high level of knowledge and operational support to ensure a successful practice. Then we provide an unsurpassed menu of financial products and services for their client base through our Securities, RIA, Insurance, Mortgage, Advanced Planning and Property & Casualty groups.

The legacy of Swenson Anderson will live forever…in the new incarnation of AdvisorNet Financial. Our firm will continue to foster close relationships with associates while creating a community that helps any independent financial advisor navigate the challenges and evolution of our industry.
