Hilltop Securities Inc. and Hilltop Securities Independent Network Inc (HTIN) have added five new financial advisors managing approximately $382 million in client assets to its employee channel and independent network wealth management platforms.
Amy Barnes joins HTIN in Springfield, Illinois from U.S. Bancorp with $149 million in assets under management. Shane Abernathy joins HTIN in San Antonio, Texas from Investment Professionals with $83 million in AUM.
Christophe Dupin de Saint Cyr and Greg Shankle join HTIN in San Pedro and Hermosa Beach, California, from Raymond James & Associates with $80 million in AUM. Kranston Kincaid joins the firm’s Private Client Group in Austin, Texas from Merrill Lynch with $70 million in AUM.
“We’re excited to welcome these talented advisors to the HilltopSecurities family,” said Dave Geschke, president of HTIN and senior managing director of Hilltop Securities Wealth Management. “The one thing I hear constantly from wirehouse advisors across the country is that their firm has lost its advisor-centered focus. As a regional-sized company with a national presence, we’re happy to show them how their business can advance with a firm that pays attention.”
Hilltop Securities delivers advice for municipal issuers, institutions, broker-dealers, and individuals. The financial services firm and registered investment adviser is headquartered in Dallas, Texas, with offices across the United States. Areas of focus include public finance; municipal and taxable fixed income underwriting, sales, and trading; equity and portfolio trading; retail brokerage services; securities clearing; structured finance; and securities lending.
