I am excited this week to announce the winners of the second annual invitation-only WSR Wealth Exemplar Awards. We expanded the 2024 awards to 15 categories that once again spotlight the best in wealth management including trend-setting transactions, exemplary organizations and industry-shaping leaders. Our team has devoted more resources and energy into this than any other project in WSR’s history, including last year’s inaugural awards, and we are pleased to present the results to you.
In addition, we just attended FSI OneVoice in Orlando, so look for our coverage! We also bring you our weekly Deals & Recruiting Roundup, coverage of a triple merger and rebranding backed by Merchant, and Snappy Kraken’s analysis of digital marketing techniques.
On a personal note, I am proud to announce that I have joined the newly created Realta Wealth Advisory Board, as Board Chairman. I will serve alongside Board Members Joseph Kuo, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Haven Tower Group, and Mike Zebrowski, Chief Operating Officer at Docupace.
Make your voice heard about your tech stack by taking five minutes to complete our survey on the state of advisor technology.
