CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) June 13, 2016
Noyes, a 108 years old wealth management and investment-banking firm, announced today the appointment of Scott Schmidt to its Wealth Management Group.
Schmidt will be based at Noyes’ office in Elgin, IL. As a Wealth Advisor he will focus on providing comprehensive wealth management counsel and services to the firm’s clientele, as well as attracting new high-net-worth clients.
Prior to joining Noyes, Schmidt served as Investment Executive at Firth Third Securities, Inc. and he will continue his work as Founding Partner at Schmidt & Lerner, LLC, an Elgin, IL-based law firm specializing in estate planning.
“Continuing to expand our team, attracting independence-seeking advisors is one of the key goals of Noyes’ strategic growth plan. Scott is a great addition to our growing team of experienced wealth managers,” said Jim Lynch, Illinois Market Leader and Managing Director.
“Throughout his career, as both an investment executive and an accomplished estate planning attorney, he has consistently focused on his client’s best interests. His philosophy is perfectly aligned with Noyes’ mission of delivering the best unconflicted client service, high-caliber investment products, services and support,” Lynch concluded.
“I joined Noyes in order to provide a high level of wealth management services to a very select group of clients,” stated Schmidt. “As a true advisor my focus is strengthening relationships with existing clients, and I take on additional clients only when I am certain I can provide them with the high level of service my current clients have come to expect. The Noyes team supports my vision and provides me with a wide range of tools and the backing I need to realize it.”
