Financial advisors Kathy Crowley, CFP®, AIF®, Corinne Crowley, CFP®, AIF® and Seamus Keenan recently joined the Ameriprise Financial Institutions Group (AFIG) from Raymond James with $168 million in client assets. The team, which operates under the name Centennial Financial Services, Crowley Wealth1, provides financial advice and investment services to 15 bank branches across the Florida Panhandle, as well as the broader community.
Kathy Crowley, who leads the team, was not initially looking to move but decided it was the right decision after exploring what Ameriprise had to offer. Her team chose Ameriprise because of the firm’s longtime focus on financial planning and dedication to client service. The team found the Ameriprise Financial Institutions Group particularly attractive because of the extensive resources available to them to grow.
“I was convinced we needed to move to Ameriprise once I saw the firm's commitment to serving clients through holistic advice,” said Kathy Crowley. “Our clients have access to a wide array of investments and products at Ameriprise and through our partnership with Centennial Financial Services, which has been crucial to helping our clients find solutions to stay on track for their goals amid the unprecedented time we're in now. I'm excited to return to the bank environment where I started my career and I look forward to helping clients reach the next step in their financial journey.”
“Ameriprise offers significant growth potential for our team because we are able to efficiently provide outstanding service to our clients and acquire new ones through the firm's deep financial planning and investment product capabilities,” added Corinne Crowley. “The company has extensive marketing resources that focus on the value financial advice can bring to Centennial Financial Services clients.”
Seamus Keenan added, “I’m looking forward to using Ameriprise’s resources to help enhance the referral relationship we already have with bank employees and to ultimately help more people in our community achieve their financial goals.”
“We’re thrilled to partner with Ameriprise and Kathy’s team to bring new financial planning services to our clients,” said Jim Haynes, regional president of Centennial Bank, parent company of Centennial Financial Services. “Ameriprise’s Financial Institutions Group offers partners a turnkey program that will help us deepen relationships with existing clients.”
The advisors joined Ameriprise in Panama City, Florida along with practice manager Adrienne Davis, and sales assistants Kim Anderson-Temples and Sherry Ryder. They are supported by Centennial Financial Services Program Manager Kyle Stroud, Ameriprise Regional Director John Hoffman, and Ameriprise group vice president – AFIG Jay McAnelly.
“Kathy and her team have worked hard to earn their clients’ trust, and we’re proud they chose to join with us,” said McAnelly. “This move provides the whole team with extensive resources to continue providing amazing service to their clients and Centennial Financial Services clients.”
Ameriprise formed its Financial Institutions Group after acquiring Investment Professionals, Inc. (IPI) in 2017. Leveraging Ameriprise’s strength as a wealth manager and IPI’s expertise in serving the financial institutions market, the AFIG channel specializes in the on-site delivery of investment programs to banks and credit unions.
