“Harvey was an early investor and founding Board member of Dynasty Financial Partners. He is a proven leader over the last four decades at the highest levels of finance. We welcome his leadership in this new role as Interim Chairman, “said Shirl Penney, Dynasty President & CEO. “I also can’t thank Todd enough for his support as a cofounder, friend, and investor and for his work in the business and as our Chairman the last nine plus years.

In January 2020, Dynasty Financial Partners announced that Bill Crager, CEO of Envestnet, joined the Board.
Now approaching its 10 year anniversary, Dynasty Financial Partners is a leading brand name in the wealth management industry that has become synonymous with powering RIA independence. With over $40 billion on its platform, the firm is expanding its RIA outsourcing, capital and investment capabilities across the board.
The Dynasty Investment Platform has grown significantly over the past several years. This has occurred through both organic growth of the existing firms in the network as well as inorganic growth via the addition of new firms. The platform surpassed $20B in assets late 2019.
The Enterprise Group is the division within Dynasty that focuses on consulting and project management services to the existing RIA community. It works with companies to drive technology optimization, increase growth and help firms become more profitable. Now moving into its third year, the Enterprise Group now covers seven firms, with a combined AUM of over $13 billion.
For RIAs seeking to grow, the need for capital can be constant. Dynasty Capital Strategies has expanded its capabilities as we work with Network advisors who need capital for business startup, succession planning, and asset diversification or to fund acquisition growth strategies. Dynasty Capital Strategies is an innovative financing program that helps independent RIAs expand, scale and grow their business with both debt and equity options for advisors. The programs are often used to fund M&A, succession planning, liquidity in transition to independence, or to fund investments in the business.
