OAKDALE, Minn., Aug. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Woodbury Financial Services, a financial services firm with more than 1,200 advisors across the country, today announced that Life Wealth Principles and National Financial Advisors have chosen to join its rapidly growing network of financial advisors. These latest additions follow Woodbury's recent acquisition of Capital One Investing's in-branch, full-service investment management and brokerage division, continuing a growth momentum that has propelled the firm to a total of $39 billion in assets under advisement (AUA).
Currently servicing over $312 million in AUA, Life Wealth Principles provides its clients with investment management services, with an emphasis on tax planning, retirement income planning, and family wealth planning. The firm, based in Golden, Colorado, sees this partnership with Woodbury as a way to improve its advisory services through expanded platform capabilities, technology, and industry knowledge. A driving factor in Life Wealth Principles' decision to partner with Woodbury was the local presence of Nathan Anderson, regional vice president at Woodbury, who can provide their firm with individualized service and support.
Headquartered in Denver, Colorado, National Financial Advisors specializes in executive benefits planning, income distribution planning, portfolio management, and business succession planning. With approximately $66 million in AUA, the firm is dedicated to helping its clients achieve their most important financial objectives. National Financial Advisors, similar to Life Wealth Principles, saw the value of a regional and highly accessible support network, including substantial succession planning acumen and resources.
"Advisors are choosing Woodbury because we have the size and scale to thrive in the fiduciary era but, more importantly, because we haven't lost sight of what this business is all about: relationships," said Mr. Anderson. "I look forward to working with National Financial Advisors and Life Wealth Principles closely in the years to come to ensure they are primed for success. This, in turn, will enable them to focus on building - and maintaining – meaningful relationships with their clients."
Mitch Moore, president of Life Wealth Principles, remarked: "As we identified potential partners, it became evident that Woodbury positions advisors like us to prioritize clients' best interests. It was also refreshing to see their keen desire to work for us – not the other way around."
"Woodbury's recruiting efforts are underpinned by a core belief that advisors perform vital work, and deserve custom, specialized services that meet their specific needs," added Rick Fergesen, president and CEO of Woodbury Financial Services. "We are equally driven by our strong values, and are subsequently delighted to welcome these two firms to the Woodbury family. Their commitment to exemplary service is evident, and we look forward to offering their advisors the resources they need to continue improving the lives and financial wellbeing of their clients."
