HilltopSecurities Welcomes Financial Advisors Managing $382 Million to Independent Network and Private Client Group

DALLAS, April 22, 2019 – Hilltop Securities Inc. (HTS) and Hilltop Securities Independent Network Inc. (HTIN) recently welcomed five new financial advisors managing approximately $382 million in client assets to its employee channel and independent network wealth management platforms.

The advisors join HilltopSecurities from major national firms, building on an industry trend of advisors seeking more flexibility and responsive management.

“We’re excited to welcome these talented advisors to the HilltopSecurities family,” said Dave Geschke, president of HilltopSecurities Independent Network and senior managing director of HilltopSecurities Wealth Management. “The one thing I hear constantly from wirehouse advisors across the country is that their firm has lost its advisor-centered focus. As a regional-sized company with a national presence, we’re happy to show them how their business can advance with a firm that pays attention.”

Amy Barnes joins HTIN in Springfield, Illinois, from U.S. Bancorp with $149 million in assets under management (AUM); Shane Abernathy joins HTIN in San Antonio, Texas, from Investment Professionals, Inc., with $83 million in AUM; and Christophe Dupin de Saint Cyr and Greg Shankle join HTIN in San Pedro and Hermosa Beach, California, from Raymond James & Associates with $80 million in AUM. Kranston Kincaid joins the firm’s Private Client Group in Austin, Texas, from Merrill Lynch with $70 million in AUM.
