WASHINGTON, Sept. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Steward Partners Global Advisory LLC, an employee-owned, full service independent partnership associated with Raymond James Financial Services, Inc. (member FINRA/SIPC), announced today that financial advisors Larry Natale, Mark Johnson and Dino Johnson, have joined Steward Partners as Founding Partners in a new Albany, NY, location. The team has a combined 55 years of experience serving clients as wealth managers and joins Steward from Wells Fargo where they collectively managed $160 million in client assets and had $1.6 million in revenue.
With the newest location in Albany, Steward Partners now has seven offices in four states and the District of Columbia. The firm, which utilizes Raymond James' platform and support services, also has plans to open several more locations over the next twelve months. Steward's rapid expansion establishes itself as one of the fastest growing full service independent partnerships in the country.
"We're excited to welcome Larry, Mark and Dino to Steward Partners and Raymond James in Steward's new Albany location," said Scott Curtis, president of Raymond James Financial Services. "This team is another high quality, client-first focused group of experienced financial advisors to affiliate under Steward Partners' unique business model. We're proud of our relationship.
A RETURN HOME FOR STEWARD'S SENIOR MANAGEMENT
"Steward's Executive Chairman Michael Maurer and I spent the early part of our careers right here in Albany, NY," says Steward's Divisional President, Jeff Gonyo. "And Larry Natale and I began in the business together here in Albany some 20 years ago, so it's nice to come full circle and expand our partnership with people with whom we have such great history. Today feels rather like a homecoming for Michael and me ─ to have our colleagues establish the Steward flag in Albany. We are excited about the opportunity this market represents."
"Michael and Jeff have deep advisor relationships in Albany, NY," adds Steward's CEO, Jim Gold. "It's fun to see how well they are received in the upstate New York market. In addition, their outstanding reputations reach even beyond Albany so we look forward to further expansion in and around the area over the next several months."
"The market here is very close and personal," said Natale. "Many advisors in and around town remember the impact Michael and Jeff had early on in their careers. If anyone is fortunate enough to hear the Steward story as we have, they will take advantage sooner rather than later."
"We spent the last few years carefully analyzing the wealth management landscape," adds Mark Johnson. "We wanted to find a place that satisfies our clients' wants and needs today, but also well into the future. The combined Steward Partners and Raymond James offering was the best opportunity for us."
Steward Partners has added 30 advisors with nearly $32 million in trailing 12 month production and who previously managed over $4 billion in assets, since November 2013. The firm anticipates another $10 million in revenue and $1 billion in assets by year end 2016.
"This milestone is personal for me, as I remember my days in Albany like it was yesterday," stated Maurer. "Larry, Mark and Dino are quality people as well as an impressive team. Our measured growth strategy and successful relationship with Raymond James is allowing us to expand into new markets like Albany. You can expect more growth in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast well into 2017."
