NEW YORK, April 18, 2017 Snowden Lane Partners, an independent, advisor-owned, wealth advisory firm dedicated to providing client-focused advice in a values-driven culture, today announced that its teams in Maryland will form the Riverstone Capital Wealth Group, a combined effort of the Mayo-Bryer Group in Bethesda, MD, and the Kirby-Hayes Group, which recently joined the firm, in Salisbury, MD.

Under the new name, Ryan Kirby and Chris Hayes, each a Partner and Director, will work in concert with the new team led by Senior Partners and Managing Directors, Keith Mayo and Alex Bryer, serving client assets in excess of $450 million.
“The recent addition of Ryan and Chris’ team represents a critical step forward for Snowden Lane Partners’ footprint in the Mid-Atlantic region,” said Bryer. “Our groups joined forces this year to augment our services in a network of the most capable and informed independent financial advisors in the country. As the Riverstone Capital Wealth Group, we will continue to be a cohesive team of sophisticated and trusted partners to current and future clients.”
Since its founding in 2011, Snowden Lane has rapidly built a national brand, attracting top industry talent from Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch, UBS, J.P. Morgan, and Wells Fargo. The firm has seven offices around the country, including Pasadena and San Diego, CA; New Haven, CT; Pittsburgh, PA; Baltimore and Bethesda, MD; as well as its New York City headquarters. In 2016, the Financial Times named Snowden Lane to its elite FT 300 list for the second straight year, recognizing it as one of the top independent RIA firms in the U.S.
“For us, the creation of the Riverstone Capital Wealth Group is proof positive that Snowden Lane Partners provides its advisory teams with the resources they need to meet client demands today and in the future,” said President and Managing Partner, Greg Franks. “This is a big year for our business and we’re thrilled at the prospects for growth with this new team and others in our independent network.”
