Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 10, 2013
Independence’s recent exponential growth has pushed the division’s assets under advisement over $500 million as of late September 2013. This achievement is a strong reflection of the firm’s expanding presence within the wealth management space. Additionally, the Independence client base has more than doubled in less than a year. Bill Bancroft, executive director of Independence, stated, “This is a very exciting time for us and our clients. Through the use of technology and our keen focus on recognizing client goals, we are achieving a new level of wealth management—sophisticated investment plans and exceptional service—which is not readily available to most high net worth investors.”
Convergent CEO David Zier noted, “These extraordinary accomplishments of firm growth reflect the mounting need for new and innovative solutions to managing wealth. Our team is truly driven to help investors achieve their goals utilizing the best approach possible.” Now and in the future, Independence is the solution for investors seeking both wealth guidance and investing advice at their fingertips.
