SFA Partners, a group of financial services firms, has hired Bryan Yvon as director of business development. In his new position, Yvon will focus on attracting new advisors to the company – which includes its dually registered broker-dealer, The Strategic Financial Alliance, and its registered investment advisor, Strategic Blueprint. Yvon will also be responsible for “promoting the organic growth of the firm’s existing professionals.”
Yvon is a longtime financial services industry veteran, starting in 1994 as a financial advisor at Allmerica Financial. He embarked on a wholesaling career in 1998 with a stint at The Phoenix Funds, and from there, he spent more than two decades wholesaling across the Southeast for a number of asset managers, including Transamerica, Prudential, and W.P. Carey. Yvon most recently served as director of investment relations at BC Partners.
“I’m thrilled to welcome Bryan to the SFA Partners community. His experience, not only as a wholesaler but as an advisor, makes him a perfect fit to accelerate our current growth trajectory. I look forward to partnering with him as he works to bring aboard new advisors and expand Strategic Blueprint, which has fast become a go-to destination for growth-focused, advice-based independent financial professionals,” said Jamie Mackay, executive vice president and chief operating officer.
SFA Partners provides shared services for The Strategic Financial Alliance, an independent broker-dealer and corporate RIA; Strategic Blueprint, an independent RIA geared to serving fee-based advisors; and SFA Insurance Services. Collectively, the firms serve more than 150 advisors who manage about $6 billion in assets.
