ALTOONA, Pa., April 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Seltzer Financial Strategies and Equity Concepts North (ECN), comprehensive financial services firms, are uniting under Equity Concepts, a Richmond, Virginia-based firm whose registered representatives serve clients in over 40 states and manage more than $875 million in assets.
Led by Amy Seltzer and David Halpern, each of the Altoona organizations have experienced great success as independent practices in the Pennsylvania market. The strategic merger of the offices with Equity Concepts is part of a growth strategy to increase resources available to all clients of the firm and expand the firm's mid-Atlantic footprint.
"As our industry continues to evolve and change, we see more strength and opportunity in being a unified team in the market," said Michael Thaler, co-founder of Equity Concepts.
With the addition of Seltzer Financial and ECN to its brand, Equity Concepts enhances its already robust team. The organization has assembled a collection of advisors with a variety of professional backgrounds, including multiple CFP's and MBA's, as well as a CPA and JD. Working together across all parties, clients will have access to specialists in areas, such as estate planning and alternative investments.
"We see this type of collaboration across specialties as the future of financial planning," said Seltzer. "You have to have size and scale to deliver it, and that's what we are now positioned to do."
"It is exciting to be able to bring this depth of expertise together," said Halpern. "These changes will allow us to focus less on the day to day of running a business and more on the client relationships which are truly at the heart of what we do."
The office will be located at 3370 Lynnwood Drive in Altoona.
