Fisher Investments alumnus Richard Wells has joined Convergent Wealth Advisors as managing director.

The 20-year industry vet will focus on the firm's wealth management platform, Independence by Convergent, which serves clients with investable assets of $1 million or more. Wells will work to expand the platform's presence beyond Washington, DC; New York and Los Angeles, concentrating initially on the Atlanta, Georgia market.

The Independence platform had $500 million under advisement as of September 2013, representing growth of almost 100% in a year. The platform's client base has more than doubled in that period.

Said Convergent CEO Dave Zier in a statement: “To have a talent like Richard join Convergent is a testament to our solid brand and related ability to attract some of the best talent out there.”

Convergent advises on over $11 billion in assets (as of September 30, 2013), providing investment consulting services and customized wealth management solutions to ultra-high net worth individuals and family offices with investable assets of $10 million and more.

Convergent is a majority-owned subsidiary of Convergent Capital Management, which is a subsidiary of City National Corporation, the parent company of City National Bank.
