“We think research, market commentary, portfolio management, and other information-accretive investment services will play an increasingly important role in our value-proposition to our advisors and clients. Going ‘independent’ does not have to mean going ‘alone’. We want to make sure that we stay at the forefront of that trend by providing our advisors a robust platform that fully supports their business. I am delighted by this new opportunity expanding my role in a company I have happily called home for thirteen years.” – Ahmed Riesgo, Chief Investment Officer
“I would like to congratulate Ahmed on his promotion and look forward to his contributions as we continue to grow. Ahmed has been a key member of the team for many years, and I am excited to work alongside him in his new role.” – Javier Rivero, President and COO
