Scott Bishop
MBA, CPA/PFS, CFP®, Executive Director of Wealth Solutions

When my partner and I were looking to leave our prior company, we had to decide what we enjoy doing vs. what we would be doing if we started our own boutique firm from scratch. Given our areas of interest and skill, we decided that we wanted to spend our time serving clients and growing our book. We joined Avidian because they gave us the flexibility to grow as we wanted while taking over the areas we didn’t want to deal with such as HR, Compliance, trading and accounting.

David M. Lee
CFP®, Sr. Wealth Advisor

As a solo practice, I had been looking for over 10 years for a succession partner. I’ve probably been in discussions with at least a dozen prospective partners, but unable to find one who would provide the same level of concern for my clients and capacity to serve various client needs. Finally, Avidian came to my attention. They were flexible enough to work through the nuances of my client base.
