Our combined organization will make us stronger as we continue to support and meet the ever-growing demands of financial professionals and their clients. What is of critical importance in any partnership is fit – both cultural and strategic. This is very much true of our new relationship with Grove Point – the cultures, priorities and philosophies of our firms could not be more aligned, and our ability to grow and deliver a differentiated experience has never been more certain.”

Since its founding, Atria has aggressively invested in people, solutions and services that drive scale and efficiencies for independent financial professionals, meet the complex needs of their clients and help them stay at the forefront of a highly competitive environment.

Grove Point’s financial professionals will also benefit from Atria’s field-based practice management consultants, in-branch recruiting support and the ability to collaborate and interact with their new peers across the Atria family at a robust calendar of growth-focused national and regional events throughout the year.

James Poer, CEO of Kestra, added, “We feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to play a role in Grove Point’s growth over the past five years as we worked together to deliver services and solutions that supported Grove Point’s financial professionals. As Grove Point embarks on this new chapter, our highest priority is to ensure the continuation of Grove Point’s success and for the firm to be best positioned for the future. Atria was the clear choice, and we are so very excited for Grove Point’s financial professionals, clients and employees with what lies ahead with Atria.”

Michelle Barry, President of Grove Point, said, “We are delighted about our new partnership with Atria and the additional resources they will immediately bring to our financial professionals. The fact that the two firms have common custody and strategic partner firms will enable our financial professionals to continue to focus on their clients, with no need to repaper. We look forward to taking full advantage of our collective value propositions for both our associates and our financial professionals and witnessing our continued growth together. Atria’s substantial and ongoing investment in the business demonstrated to us its long-term commitment to providing the most comprehensive, competitive and innovative solutions in our industry and is precisely what we need for the next chapter of our firm.”
