Three Advisors with Combined $546 Million in Assets Move Their Businesses to Ameriprise Financial Institutions Practice

The former Securian Financial Services advisors joined Springs Wealth Group in Colorado Springs

MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ameriprise Financial, Inc. (NYSE: AMP) today announced that Springs Wealth Group, a well-established team in the company’s Financial Institutions Group led by Chris Young, CFP®, CEPA®, Chris Van Stavern, and Andy Inman, CEPA®, has expanded with the addition of three advisors who collectively manage $546 million in client assets:

  • Robert “Bob” Book, AIF®, and Timothy “Tim” Mason, CFP®, ChFC®, CLU® joined from Securian Financial Services where they together managed $447 million in assets.

Securian Financial Services advisors choose Ameriprise for technology, thought leadership

Ladrow, who also joined from Securian, similarly chose to align with Springs Wealth because of the access the team could provide to Ameriprise’s integrated technology and resources to deepen relationships with clients.
