Washington Wealth Management added another wirehouse alum to its advisor roster on Thursday. Nadia Dickinson, a 30-year veteran of Morgan Stanley with $100 million in assets under management, affiliated her newly formed practice, Dickinson Graham Capital, with WWM.
“The affiliation of Nadia Dickinson and her practice underscores how we continue to help former wirehouse advisors achieve the independence they need to expand their business,” Rob Bartenstein, WWM’s CEO, another former Morgan Stanley employee, said in a statement.
Lancaster, Calif.-based Dickinson Graham Capital Management will focus on Californian investors and help WWM boost its presence in Southern California, the firm said. The addition of Dickinson’s business marks the 10th advisory practice to join WWM since National Financial Partners in March acquired it. In September, WWM lured a $220 million team away from RBC Wealth Management.
For Dickinson, WWM and NFP’s broker/dealer platform provides the resources needed to establish her nascent practice. “As I transition to independence, there was no better partner for both developing and growing my practice than WWM. WWM’s turnkey multi-custodial platform, along with its unique understanding of the needs of successful advisors, will enable me to create a highly responsive, client-centered environment,” Dickinson said.
