Tarah Williams, President and COO of Prospera, said, “Over the past several months, we have seen significant consolidation among mega firms in our industry, leaving many advisors asking if there is a different path to build their businesses. We strive to provide our advisors with personalized services and support so they can grow their practice their own way.”

Led by President and Senior Financial Advisor Matthew Gaspar, G4 specializes in comprehensive financial, tax, retirement, income and philanthropic planning for families, executives and owners of small- to medium-sized businesses. The firm also provides education, risk analysis, trust and estate services, and portfolio management.
