Balentine Utilizes Milestone Growth to Enhance Client Experience?

ATLANTA, Jan. 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Balentine, a leading independent wealth management firm, announced today that its assets under advisement have reached over $6 billion, a 100% increase in just three years. As a firm that has always been committed to innovation and improvement, Balentine's milestone growth has enabled significant new investments in talent, technology, and resources which will increase simplification for clients to assist them in making the best decisions for their families and businesses.

Investments in Talent

To ensure its clients continue to receive the highest level of personal attention and service as the firm continues to grow, Balentine added six new positions to its team in 2021, for a total of 48 employees, and has approved 11 more positions to add by the end of 2022. The firm has recently invested in personnel in the following areas:

Investments in Technology 

On the technology front, Balentine invested in Addepar, widely considered the industry's most scalable data aggregation and performance reporting platform. This will make it easier for clients to always have a pulse on their entire financial picture. 

To simplify processes and capture cost savings for clients, Balentine introduced an in-house trading platform, led by new Head of Trading, Kenneth Jackson. As a result, clients now enjoy lower trading costs, better execution, consolidated account operations, and improved tax management capabilities. 

Investments in Resources

Recognizing the need for healthcare planning guidance, Balentine partnered with Bernard Healthcare Financial Planners to assist clients and their loved ones in navigating health insurance and Medicare decisions. Now, clients may meet with a healthcare advisor and receive a customized healthcare plan recommendation at no cost.? 

Under the leadership of Balentine President Brittain Prigge, CFA, Balentine continues to focus on deepening relationships with, and broadening the services it provides to, its Family Office clients with needs that stretch beyond investment management to the more complex topics of wealth and legacy.

Finally, Chairman Robert Balentine and CEO Adrian Cronje, Ph.D., CFA released their book First Generation Wealth and led a series of events to help wealth creators think through what it takes to build a meaningful legacy and best support future generations.

The Value of a Client-Centered Approach

Since Balentine was founded, leadership has committed to constant improvement and servitude to clients. As evidence that these efforts are resonating, Balentine has grown rapidly in the past year, reaching over $6 billion in assets under advisement. This revenue growth encompasses both new clients and existing clients who have consolidated their assets and entrusted them to Balentine.

"Reaching over $6 billion of assets under advisement, just 12 years after our founding, validates our client-centered approach to wealth management, and underscores the trust our clients have placed in us," said CEO Adrian Cronje, Ph.D., CFA "But we're far from done growing and strengthening the firm for our clients' benefit."

The Value of Independence

Across the country, wealth management firms?including many in the Southeast?are rapidly consolidating. What's more, private-equity firms have established a significant ownership presence in the industry. Balentine is independent and answerable only to its clients and its employees, and it intends to stay that way. The milestones mentioned above are just part of its larger vision: to build and continually strengthen a world-class wealth management firm that will be here for generations to come.
