The RiverFront Difference
“I work with people I genuinely like and enjoy working with, doing work I find intellectually rewarding, and I get to help advisors help their clients find financial peace. I don’t know many places where you can find that combination of fulfilling work and fun people who care about each other. ”
Adam Grossman CFA®
Global Equity CIO | Co-Head of Investment Committee
“It is hard to be unique in the investment management business. RiverFront’s uncommon communication, transparency and access builds uniquely strong relationships with advisors. Our top advisors view us as strategic partners in their practices as we are much more than just a manager of money.”
Director of Corporate Strategy
“RiverFront is set apart from its competitors because we focus our efforts on cultivating a partnership with the financial advisor that ultimately benefits the end client. As an investment team, we are an extension of the financial advisor’s team; providing market assistance whenever needed. At the end of the day, we put the client and financial advisor’s interest above all else. Lots of firms talk about this, but at RiverFront we live it. This is what makes RiverFront special and what drives me every day.”
