Prospera Financial Services is a boutique wealth management organisation that supports a nationwide network of independent advisers.

Tarah Williams, Prospera’s president and chief operating officer said: “Over the past several months, we have seen significant consolidation among mega firms in our industry, leaving many advisers asking if there is a different path to build their businesses. We strive to provide our advisers with personalized services and support so they can grow their practice their own way. The addition of G4 Wealth Management, East Coast Capital Management and Paraclete Wealth Consultants serves as a meaningful proof point that our value proposition is resonating with growth-minded advisers across the country, and we welcome these teams to the Prospera family.”

The three Prospera advisers joining include:

  • G4 Wealth Management
