(LOS ANGELES / September 10, 2020)
B. Riley Wealth Management, Inc., a full service private wealth and investment services firm and subsidiary of B. Riley Financial, Inc. (NASDAQ:RILY) ("B. Riley"), today announced that Robert A. Anthony has joined the firm as Managing Director and branch manager of the Houston office.
"Bob brings an extensive background in sales management and training to his new role as branch manager," said Chuck Hastings, Chief Executive Officer, B. Riley Wealth Management. "For the past six years, he's been an advisor himself, so he understands what it takes to run a successful high net worth client practice. This combination of experience and perspective will make him a great leader, supporter and coach to our advisors."
During his 24-year financial services career, Anthony helped create, facilitate and manage the national sales training program for Chase Investment Services Corp., where he trained thousands of registered reps. He also held sales management and supervisory manager roles while with Chase. In 2014, he shifted to a client-facing role and spent the last six years as a private client advisor with JP Morgan Securities. A native Texan and fourth generation Houstonian, Anthony holds a bachelor's degree in economics and an M.B.A. in finance from University of St. Thomas Houston.
"During my career, I've most enjoyed the role of helping advisors grow their practices," said Anthony, "so I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to do so for this dynamic, growing firm. In contrast to a wirehouse environment, B. Riley Wealth Management's boutique culture and deep resources offer exactly what financial advisors need to provide a high touch, sophisticated level of service to their clients. I believe B. Riley is uniquely situated to help advisors take their business to another level."
