Kestra Financial Closes Out 2020 with $5.3 Billion in New Recruitment Assets

AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 4, 2021–
After wrapping up an unprecedented year, industry-leading wealth management platform Kestra Financial today announced its annual recruitment results.
The firm added $5.3 billion in new assets in 2020. Additions include:

  • Larry Krmpotich, Riverfront Wealth Management

Note: The asterisk (*) represents recruits who joined through Kestra Private Wealth Services.
“2020 will go down in history as one of the most challenging years for our economy, yet we observed one pervasive trend in wealth management: The pursuit of independence,” said Stephen Langlois, President of Kestra Financial. “In fact, more than half of our new recruits sought to leave the employee model of wirehouses.”
Financial professionals can choose independence directly from the wirehouse through Kestra Financial or Kestra Private Wealth Services, a full-service offering including real estate, equipment, compliance, and technology.
“Our recent success wouldn’t have been possible without our team’s commitment to culture and relentless pursuit of high-touch service,” said Daniel Schwamb, Executive Vice President of Business Development. “This, coupled with our nimble technology infrastructure, enabled us to adapt quickly to the virtual environment.”
