Private Advisor Group Closes 2021 with Record Recruiting Results

MORRISTOWN, NJ, February 1, 2022 /

Private Advisor Group, one of the largest and fastest-growing independent wealth management firms in the country*, announced that it will close 2021 with a record $3.3 billion in assets under management onboarded through the addition of new independent advisor practices.

Frank Smith, Private Advisor Group’s Head of Advisor Growth shared, “the strong recruiting momentum has been propelled by advisors seeking alignment with an experienced and highly reputable leader in the wealth management profession that offers attractive services, greater autonomy, competitive economics, and experienced risk management. The growth to date has been predominantly organic, which speaks volumes to the value of affiliation with Private Advisor Group, including the focus we place on culture and community. We believe these results are confirmation of our trajectory that further strengthens our position for continued growth both organically and through strategic acquisitions.” He added, “Our new Head of Business Development, Verne Marble, has contributed to this momentum by elevating our approach to business development and introducing an improved experience for prospective advisors.”

While Private Advisor Group continues to attract seasoned financial advisors looking to further expand independent planning and investment services to more investors, other new additions to the Private Advisor Group community encompass a variety of firms seeking to access the benefits of greater scale, improve flexibility in their practice, as well as professionals looking to further pursue their career aspirations within the financial profession. With a multi-dimensional platform, advisors have access to flexible affiliation based on their practice’s unique needs and structure. Relationships are in place with six major custodians, to meet the increasing desire for advisors to access a truly national and multi-custodian platform. 

Private Advisor Group will continue to recruit financial entrepreneurs nationwide who are seeking to model a practice that favors independence, and those looking to grow smarter and more confidently while expanding upon comprehensive planning services and an emphasis on the end-client experience.
