WOODBURY, N.Y., UNITED STATES, December 9, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Impact-focused Investment Firm Vanderbilt Financial Group continues to flourish in 2020, with increased recruitment and business growth in the fall season despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We are thrilled to once again report that we have added a record amount of Financial Advisors to our team and are continuing to increase our west coast presence,” said Joseph Trifiletti, President of Vanderbilt Financial Group. “2020 has really been a benchmark year for our firm. We can’t wait to see what 2021 has in store for us.”
“Our firm’s focus is on socially and environmentally responsible investments. With many still reeling from the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic, increased racial tensions and a polarizing presidential election, Advisors want to work at a firm that is more purposeful,” stated Stephen Distante, Vanderbilt Financial Group Founder and Chairman. “This increase in recruitment will allow us to be even more impactful during turbulent times.”
Vanderbilt also attributes their recruitment success to their increased investment in technology, which both improves business processing time and increases the value of an Advisor’s practice by being at the forefront of technology with straight through business processing. Vanderbilt recently expanded its RIA affiliate firm that offers new strategic relationships with Charles Schwab, TD Ameritrade and Fidelity Institutional Wealth Services (IWS).
