NEW ORLEANS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–NewEdge Advisors, LLC, a leading New Orleans-based RIA supporting successful independent financial advisors nationwide, announced today that five new advisory groups, with ten advisors and $1 billion in assets under advisement, joined the platform in the first quarter of 2022. The added advisor groups include Atlantic Ave Advisors in Delray Beach, FL; Clearpath Wealth Partners in Norman, OK; Crescent Wealth Management in Greenville, SC; Lagniappe Wealth Management in Shreveport, LA; and WealthWorth in Alpharetta, GA.
The addition of the new advisory teams continues the firm’s substantial growth trajectory after a record-breaking 2021 where NewEdge Advisors added 37 advisors with $2.5 billion in assets serviced. In 2022, the firm has recruited teams with nearly half of the previous year’s total assets in the first quarter alone. As a result of the perpetual growth, NewEdge Advisors now serves over 240 independent advisors across 30 states with $17 billion in brokerage and advisory assets under advisement.
“Advisor demand for independence is not slowing down — they continue to see that taking full control of the client experience in a way uniquely afforded by the RIA space is the direction they want to take their practice,” said Neil Turner, Co-CEO of NewEdge Advisors. “More and more, advisors are also recognizing that NewEdge Advisors provides something beyond just a platform. We are creating a partnership that encourages a culture of collaboration and idea-sharing and welcome already successful financial advisors to join other like-minded professionals that want to contribute to increased success for everyone.”
The Advisor Succession Program (ASP), which allows advisors to monetize part of their revenue but maintain the autonomy and control that comes with going into private practice, is expected to further boost the firm’s growth in 2022.
“An increasing number of advisors are taking advantage of our tailored ASP program. Advisors understand that with NewEdge Advisors as their partner, they have the flexibility to structure their practice as they see fit,” said David Symecko, Managing Director of Business Development. “We have grown a very large pipeline of advisors looking to leverage the scale and support that NewEdge Advisors can provide and we are excited to see the growth that 2022 will bring.”
The firm expects its substantial growth to continue throughout 2022, as it seeks opportunities to expand its geographic footprint amid ongoing advisor demand.
