New York, January 11, 2020 – Wealthspire Advisors, an NFP company and independent investment adviser, today announced the official rebrand of StratWealth as Wealthspire Advisors. Wealthspire closed on the acquisition of StratWealth, an award-winning wealth management firm serving families and retirement plans on November 13, 2020.

“StratWealth has a fantastic culture of client service and talented advisors that fit well with Wealthspire,” said Wealthspire CEO Mike LaMena. “Integrating them with our deep investment platform, robust technology and back office support structure enhances value for StratWealth’s clients. We are excited to welcome StratWealth’s accomplished team and expand our presence in the Mid-Atlantic market, and we look forward to continuing to expand our wealth management platform through a combination with top quality firms throughout the United States.”

Wealthspire Advisors currently oversees approximately $12.5 billion in AUM across 14 offices in 8 states. The acquisition expands the firms presence in the Mid-Atlantic, where it now has offices in Fulton, Annapolis, Salisbury, and Potomac, Md., as well as, Reston, Va., and Philadelphia, Pa.

StratWealth serves more than 900 families with assets of approximately $1.5 billion in Fulton, Md., Annapolis, and Salisbury. In addition, the firm services over 100 business retirement plans that became part of NFP’s retirement business, bringing expanded support and services to those plans.

“Being part of Wealthspire is a game changer for both StratWealth’s clients and our associates,” said James DeCarlo, CEO of StratWealth. “We are pleased to fully integrate with Wealthspire and be part of a dynamic, growing firm with broader services and a national presence. We’ll still have the same close-knit company culture and commitment to serving our clients, just with a much deeper talent base supporting us.”
