RICHMOND, Va., Dec. 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Equity Concepts, an industry-leading financial services firm, celebrates another successful year of growth by growing assets, expanding its team and upgrading the firm's technology.
Equity Concepts experienced solid growth in new assets under advisement in 2015 of approximately $75 million, bringing the total to $775 million. In addition to asset growth, the firm expanded its team this year by adding John Hopper as the new Director of Strategic Growth. Hopper added over 25 years of experience in private banking and wealth management to the team. He has already launched efforts to grow and expand Equity Concepts' services to the broader market, as well as determining and implementing internal growth strategies.
"To stay on the cutting edge of wealth management, we have a team of advisors that specialize in each aspect of a client's financial strategy. We see this collaborative team based approach as the future of wealth management, and what clients will soon come to expect," said Andrew Walker, Managing Director & Chief Investment Officer of the firm.
Internally, the firm is continuing to grow by making significant changes to its work flow and team structure. This new structure has helped to streamline the onboarding process for new clients and gives each client a more uniform experience with the firm.
In 2015, Equity Concepts also focused on optimizing the firm's technology infrastructure and overall client experience. With the addition of programs such as Riskalyze, software that quantifies an investor's risk exposure, the firm is taking client education, communication and advice to a new level.
"We're committed to providing technology solutions that strengthen our client relationships and empower them to take control of their financial futures," said Ken Jones, Director of Client Services and Technology.
The firm also expanded its industry presence and brand awareness by hiring Flackable, a national financial public relations agency, as its integrated communications agency of record. Flackable now leads media relations and content strategy for Equity Concepts as the firm expands its regional and national visibility.
