TOPEKA, Kan., June 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- AE Wealth Management continues to grow without accepting external capital or making acquisitions, having surpassed $4 billion in total platform assets as of June 12, 2018.
AE Wealth increased its total platform assets from just under $590 million at year-end 2016 to approximately $3 billion as of December 31, 2017—and it took less than six months for the firm's platform assets to grow to over $4 billion. AE Wealth was recently ranked No. 2 by InvestmentNews on the publication's list of fee-only registered investment advisors (RIAs) with $1 billion or more in assets that experienced the largest year-over-year total asset growth, as of May 1, 2018.
"The success of AE Wealth Management is due to the strength of our advisor partners and our dedicated Wealth Team," said Chris Radford, President of AE Wealth Management. "We couldn't be prouder of the advisors who, through their relationships with us, have strengthened their capabilities to help clients achieve long-term financial goals—and, in the process, facilitated scalable growth for their own practices."
AE Wealth's sustainable growth is driven in part by ongoing enhancements to its offering of practice management resources and investment solutions for independent advisors. The firm most recently rolled out its InvestmentHQ mobile app, which enables clients to view all of their investments on a single screen from any smartphone. InvestmentHQ can also help advisors strengthen client relationships and facilitate practice expansion by, among other things, providing investors with snapshots of position, transaction, and account data from their investment portfolios as well as indexed annuities from 10 top insurance carriers.
