Kestra Financial Closes Out 2022 With $8.5 Billion in New Recruitment Assets

Kestra Financial, an industry-leading wealth management platform, today announced strong growth in 2022.

The firm welcomed 80 financial professionals and recorded $8.5 billion in new recruitment assets from January through December 2022.

"We experienced tremendous success recruiting financial professionals because they recognize the value of wealth management solutions, technology, and people in the Kestra ecosystem that enable their success and ability to scale their practices," said Daniel Schwamb, Executive Vice President of Business Development at Kestra Financial. "Our staff fully returned to the home office in Austin in 2022, allowing recruits to meet and interact with our team in person during the selection process. With our workforce back together, financial professionals can see and feel our service-focused office culture firsthand."

2022 additions include:

Note: The asterisk (*) represents recruits who joined through Kestra Private Wealth Services.

"Kestra strategically partners with financial professionals and provides the necessary resources enabling them to act in their clients' best interests," said Stephen Langlois, President of Kestra Financial. "We deeply value our financial professionals as clients and independent business owners; we are privileged to support them and their firms. Looking ahead, we are poised for robust growth in 2023 as we continue to welcome more growth and client-oriented financial professionals to our platform."

Financial professionals joining Kestra Financial and Kestra Private Wealth Services in 2022 also cited Kestra's size as a reason for joining the network, as the firm is large enough to offer resources comparable to larger firms, yet small enough to offer personalized attention tailored to support individual practice goals.

Financial professionals have the option of operating an independent practice through either Kestra Financial or Kestra Private Wealth Services, a registered investment adviser subsidiary of Kestra Financial that provides a full-service offering including assistance with real estate, equipment, and technology.
