Kestra Private Wealth Services Welcomes $250 Million Inspired Wealth Planning
AUSTIN, Texas-- Kestra Private Wealth Services, LLC ("Kestra PWS"), a registered investment adviser subsidiary of Kestra Financial, Inc., today announced the addition of Inspired Wealth Planning to its platform, whose financial professionals collectively oversee $250 million in client assets.
Founded by seasoned Financial Advisor and President Ricky Smith, Inspired Wealth Planning includes Registered Associate Jynni Bowyer and Client Service Associate Stacey Kamerer. Located in Cordele, Georgia, the firm’s team specializes in creating customized financial plans with a focus on life events including multi-generational planning, liquidity events, legacy strategies, and longevity preparation.
A client and team-oriented firm, Inspired Wealth Planning's decision to go independent with Kestra PWS was driven by the dedicated staff and full-service support model that takes away the complexities of real estate, compliance, technology, and more.
"The move to Kestra Private Wealth Services provides our team with the flexibility and choices for clients that we weren't able to deliver before," said the Inspired Wealth Planning team. "With so many tasks unrelated to client service off our plate, we can focus on maintaining and enhancing our high-touch client experience, strengthening our team, and scaling our firm."
Through this partnership, Inspired Wealth Planning looks to continue growing both in firm size and in its impact on clients and the local community. The name Inspired Wealth Planning is derived from the belief that the first step to changing peoples’ lives comes from inspiration within oneself.
"The team at Inspired Wealth Planning joins a growing list of former wirehouse professionals that see the value of our independent, full-service support model for their business," said Robert Bartenstein, Senior Managing Director and CEO at Kestra PWS. "We are committed to helping financial professionals like Ricky and his team make an impact on the lives of clients, staff, and their community with our deep bench of resources and enhanced level of support."
