Farpointe Wealth Partners LLC, an independent financial advice firm within the Cetera network, has added Schexnayder Wealth Advisors, a $190 million asset team led by owner and senior advisor, Nolan Schexnayder.
Based in the New Orleans metropolitan area, Schexnayder’s seven-member team provides tax, accounting and wealth management services. Farpointe, co-founded by Scott Rawlins and Brian Stern, became an independently owned business within Cetera’s financial professional network in December of 2020.
Schexnayder joins Farpointe after more than 34 years at his prior firm, Avantax Investment Services, according to his BrokerCheck profile. Commenting on his decision, Schexnayder said, “We were attracted by the talent of Farpointe’s leadership, and the firm’s vision of curating an exclusive group of like-minded financial professionals who value trust, collaboration and meaningful personal relationships galvanized by a shared culture.”
Schexnayder will also be joining Farpointe’s board. Rawlins noted that “Nolan was a top producer for over 25 years at his prior firm and was a pioneer in helping pave the way for CPAs to provide comprehensive financial planning services.”
