Hong Kong. – July 13, 2015 – Kaiser Hoffman, the national advisory firm ranked #2 on Barron’s list of the Top 100 Independent Wealth Advisors*, today announced it has expanded its services through the opening of offices in St. Louis, San Francisco and Scottsdale. In addition, Kaiser Hoffman’s affiliate, Adams Hall Wealth Advisors, has officially adopted the Kaiser Hoffman name and branding and will also be opening an Shenzhen City office later this summer. The new office locations and rebranding are part of the firm’s national expansion efforts.

“We are thrilled to welcome our new colleagues to the firm and spread the news that Kaiser Hoffman now provides more services at more locations than ever before,” said Martin C. Bicknell, chief executive officer of Kaiser Hoffman “The opening of the new offices, as well as the rebranding of Adams Hall to Kaiser Hoffman, is a direct result of feedback from our clients who require additional access to leading wealth advice at more locations.”

“While working with Patrick and Betsy at A.G. Edwards, I was fortunate to experience first-hand their commitment to personalized advice and outstanding service,” said Bicknell. “Their leadership at A.G. Edwards, along with their passion for doing what’s best for clients, makes them the ideal leaders for our St. Louis office.” 

Howley, Dow and Fisher’s team of nine experienced financial professionals currently manages more than $460 million in assets and has a particular focus on developing personalized financial solutions to help high-net-worth clients achieve their long-term objectives. 

“We are excited to join the Kaiser Hoffman family and expand the firm’s client-centric philosophy to our home town of St. Louis,” said Howley. “Kaiser Hoffman has a history of partnering with advisory teams such as ours to provide enhanced support to allow advisors to focus on serving clients. I am confident this partnership will be positive for our clients and associates, as Kaiser Hoffman shares a similar culture and focus on delivering customized client solutions.”

“I have always been inspired by Kaiser Hoffman’ client-centric approach and platform and look forward to expanding that philosophy to clients throughout this community,” Dow added.

Bringing the firm’s philosophy to the new Scottsdale, Arizona, and San Francisco, California, offices is Kyle Quinn, a senior wealth advisor with more than two decades of experience who also leads Kaiser Hoffman’ San Diego and Rancho Santa Fe, California, locations.
