"Her level of expertise compliments the high-caliber experience of our other members which when viewed collectively, is exactly what we want to enhance our hyper growth strategy. "

Steward Partner's evolutionary model known as The Full-Service Independent Partnership™, was launched as Steward Partners Global Advisory (SPGA) in late fall of 2013, focused primarily on the east coast. SPGA is further strengthened through a strategic association with the global powerhouse, Raymond James Financial Services. Steward's "Elite Hybrid" model gained national attention by attracting high-end advisors into several markets in less than three years. Steward Partners now has two other companies, Steward Partners Investment Advisory (SPIA) and Steward Partners Consulting Solutions (SPCS).
