Atria Wealth Solutions, Inc. (Atria), a multi-channel wealth management solutions holding company, announced today it has successfully closed the acquisition of SCF Securities, Inc. (SCF), an independent wealth management firm based in Fresno, CA. With this closing, Atria acquires 100% of SCF Securities, Inc., SCF Investment Advisors, Inc., and SCF Marketing, Inc. and now serves over 2,500 financial professionals with nearly $95 billion in assets under administration.

“We are thrilled to welcome SCF into the Atria family. We share a collective vision for offering the best experience and exceptional service to financial professionals, making the combination a great fit for both firms,” said Doug Ketterer, CEO and founding partner of Atria. “Both companies believe in the criticality of the advisor-client relationship and making it easier for financial professionals to create deeper and more meaningful interactions with clients and prospects by delivering the best-in-class tools, technology, investment solutions, resources and services.”

Atria is committed to investing in technology and capabilities that innovate and differentiate, giving financial professionals a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
