Minneapolis – October 21, 2019 – Today Ameriprise Financial, Inc. (NYSE: AMP) announced that Stiles, Miller & Clark Group, a team of experienced financial advisors managing approximately $256 million in assets, has joined its employee channel in Lansing, Mich. Craig Stiles, MBA, Gregory Miller, and Nathan Clark, CPWA®, CRPC® lead the team and are joined by registered client services associates Karen Hill and Amy Wightman. Mark Calderone supports the team as their Ameriprise branch manager.
The team joins Ameriprise from Merrill Lynch. Miller has almost 33 years of experience serving clients; Stiles has 17 years; and Clark has 13 years of experience.
The advisors conducted due diligence on several firms over a few years before deciding to join Ameriprise. “All five of us on the team were excited about moving to Ameriprise,” said Craig Stiles. “And, we’re pleased to say that our expectations have been exceeded.”
The team highlighted three qualities of Ameriprise that stood out to them most in comparison to other firms:
  • Ease of doing business with clients. “We found that Ameriprise is best able to support how clients use our advice today and how we want to grow in the future,” said Craig Stiles. “In particular, we like how business here can be performed on the go, with mobile apps for both clients and advisors.”
  • Supporting, rather than circumventing, the advisor-client relationship. “We were attracted to the intense focus Ameriprise has on supporting the advisor-client relationship,” said Greg Miller. “It is front and center in the way the firm designs their policies and how various departments work together to support advisors.”
  • Stability amid the abundance of changes happening across the industry. “From technology to products to client expectations, there is a lot of transformation underway for advisors and for clients,” said Nathan Clark. “We were looking for greater flexibility to evolve our business in a way that allows us to serve clients well. Ameriprise stands out for sticking to their financial planning roots, while continually enabling advisors to serve clients in a modern way.”
