River Oak Asset Advisory, an independent investment and wealth management firm in Cincinnati, OH, is excited to announce their affiliation with RFG Advisory. Founder and CEO Steve Spaeth, CFP®, made the game-changing decision to embrace independence and launch his own firm after more than two decades with leading Wall Street institutions.
“2020 afforded all of us the opportunity to think about our futures and how we want to live our lives,” says Steve, “As a professional passionately dedicated to my clients and their families, it became abundantly clear that I could take my 1-1 service experience to another level by starting my own firm.” A Financial Advisor for 27 years making the leap to independence was not always the obvious choice. “You grow comfortable with what you know,” continued Steve, “but, the future belongs to those that are committed to embracing change and forging the path forward.”
Partnering with RFG Advisory, River Oak Asset Advisory will be in the enviable position of spending all of their time on what they love – serving clients and growing the firm. They will remain in charge of all business decisions and operations, but with the added resources, people, infrastructure and technology to help the firm in its next phase of growth.
“The team at RFG wakes up every day to bring their A-game to our Advisors, so they can in turn bring their A-game to their clients,” states Bobby White, Founder & CEO of RFG Advisory. “It’s a win-win and we couldn’t be more honored than to partner with Steve and his team.”
River Oak Asset Advisory sets itself apart through its experience, intellectual firepower and passion for serving families and helping them to build multi-generational wealth. “The future of wealth management is changing. Being entrepreneurial and aligning yourself from a culture, mission and values perspective with your clients is more important than ever,” adds RFG Advisory’s President Shannon Spotswood. “There is a reason Advisors are leaving the large Wall Street firms in favor of independence – the desire to have a service model that puts clients’ best interests first, always.”
With access to an innovative online portal, more investment options and comprehensive financial planning, clients will immediately understand what sets River Oak Asset Advisory apart. “The marketplace is clamoring for a differentiated and highly customized financial advisory experience,” stated Steve, “By focusing on generational wealth planning, investment management, business succession planning and estate planning strategies I am confident that this next chapter serving my clients and growing the firm is destined to be the most rewarding and exciting yet.”
