Press Release – Snowden Lane Partners and Kestrel Capital Announce Strategic Alliance

October 2019 - Press Release

Dublin, Ireland based Kestrel and Snowden Lane will cooperate with respect to cross-border business development


NEW YORK – October 3, 2019 – Snowden Lane Partners, an independent, advisor-owned, wealth advisory firm dedicated to providing client-focused advice in a values-driven culture, today announced a strategic cooperation alliance with Dublin, Ireland based Kestrel Capital, an independent wealth advisory firm that advises high net worth individuals, family offices, corporations, charities and retirement plans.

Snowden Lane and Kestrel Capital will seek to expand their respective service capabilities and refer clients to one another where there may be an opportunity to develop and strengthen business relationships. By virtue of its authorization by the Central Bank of Ireland and the U.K. Financial Conduct Authority, Kestrel Capital has and will retain its “single passport” and ability to do business in both the United Kingdom and the European Union. Snowden Lane affiliates are authorized to do business in the U.S.

John Crowe, Partner and Chief Executive Officer of Kestrel Capital, stated, “There are many business executives and their families from the U.S. residing in Ireland who can benefit from cross-border advisory capabilities, and more families with children residing abroad that present complex cross-border estate planning challenges. This alliance will enable us to ensure they are receiving comprehensive professional advice whether they reside in the U.K., Ireland, the E.U. or the United States.”

Rob Mooney, Managing Partner and Chief Executive Officer of Snowden Lane added: “In many ways, the world is still becoming a smaller place, and we believe a strategic relationship with a reputable advisory firm like Kestrel Capital is very valuable as we look to develop our business outside the U.S.”

Lyle LaMothe, Snowden Lane’s Chairman, added, “We’ve known John and his firm for some time and see a real potential to develop new relationships by way of referral, as well as to facilitate servicing existing cross-border clients and their families.”

Since its founding in 2011, Snowden Lane has rapidly built a national brand, attracting top industry talent from Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch, UBS, JP Morgan, Raymond James and Wells Fargo, among others. The firm has 10 offices around the country, including Pasadena and San Diego, CA; New Haven, CT; Coral Gables, FL; Pittsburgh, PA; Baltimore, Salisbury and Bethesda, MD; San Antonio, TX; as well as its New York City headquarters. In 2019, the Financial Times named Snowden Lane to its elite FT 300 list for the fifth straight year, recognizing it as one of the top independent RIA firms in the U.S. A number of the firm’s advisors have been recognized as FT 401 Top Retirement advisors, and a number by Forbes/Shook as top state advisors.
