The advisors come to Ameriprise with nearly $180 million in assets and a focus on growth
Saxon Advisors, a wealth management practice managing nearly $180 million in client assets, recently joined the independent channel of Ameriprise Financial, Inc. (NYSE: AMP). Garry Rutledge, AIF®, Brian Bushman, CRC®, and Donald McClurg, CRPC™, who operate Saxon Advisors in Cincinnati, Ohio, moved their practice to Ameriprise from Cambridge Investment Research Inc.
When the team was looking to make a move, the integrated suite of technology and comprehensive financial planning capabilities at Ameriprise stood out.
“We wanted to deliver a superb client experience while running our business more effectively,” said Bushman. “The advanced technology ecosystem will free up more time in our day to focus on what’s most important—spending time with our clients.”
McClurg is particularly excited about the difference Ameriprise’s financial planning tools and client-facing technology will make for their clients.
He added, “With these enhanced tools and technology, our clients will have a clearer view of how they’re tracking against their financial plans. This level of clarity can help reduce anxiety, especially in rocky markets like we are in now, because clients can see exactly where they stand.”
“Our ultimate goal is to grow Saxon Advisors by bringing on more advisors and providing best-in-class service to more clients,” said Rutledge. “We believe Ameriprise is the right firm to help us do that.”
Ameriprise has continued to attract experienced, productive financial advisors, with approximately 1,700 joining the firm in the last 5 years.1 Nine out of ten advisors who joined Ameriprise say the firm’s technology, financial planning capabilities and ability to acquire clients is better than their previous firm.2 To find out why experienced financial advisors are joining Ameriprise, visit ameriprise.com/why.
