AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 18, 2021–

Kestra Private Wealth Services, LLC (Kestra PWS), a registered investment advisor subsidiary of Kestra Financial, Inc., today announced the addition of Maven Bridge Capital.

Maven Bridge Capital, located in Brea, California with established footprints in both Orange County and Whittier, California, is led by Chief Executive Officer and wealth manager Kristoffer “Kris” Fu. Kris oversees approximately $109 million in assets and brings with him a strong client base flush with long-term relationships.

“For wealth management professionals, a large portion of their day is often devoted to simply running the business,” said Rob Bartenstein, CEO and Senior Managing Director of Kestra PWS. “With our capabilities and services in Kris’ back pocket, he can spend more time growing his clientele and deepening his existing relationships — which he has expressed as his top priority since the start.”

Kris believes his alignment with Kestra PWS gives his firm the ability to provide a more sophisticated set of solutions for clients as well as the latitude to further customize and enhance his service offering, all the while growing his business and honing his expertise.

“After having spent over a decade in the wirehouse, I reached the point where it no longer provided me with the tools I needed to give my clients the high levels of service they deserved,” said Kris.“The independent model gives me the platform, flexibility and independence to be creative and truly help my clients in all aspects of their financial life.”

Kris was previously affiliated with J.P. Morgan Securities, LLC.
