Focus Financial Partners, which brings together independent RIA firms, said Monday that LaFleur & Godfrey of Grand Rapids, Mich., had joined the partnership with some $400 million in client assets. This addition is the fourth transaction Focus has made in 2013.
“We launched Focus almost seven years ago to bring together fiduciary-minded RIAs to help them achieve their strategic business goals. LaFleur & Godfrey’s practice centers on high-touch service, deep client relationships and a drive for growth, all of which are attributes we look for in our partners,” said Rudy Adolf (left), founder and CEO of Focus, in a press release.
“The Midwest will continue to be an important geographic market for Focus, and we are excited to develop deeper ties and attract other talented advisory teams in this region,” added Adolf.
LaFleur & Godfrey has been in business since 1987, providing investment-management solutions to high-net-worth clients, as well as some financial-planning services.
“Focus is an industry leader in the RIA space and has a proven track record of helping entrepreneurs maximize their growth potential,” said Daniel VanTimmeren, a principal and co-founder of LaFleur & Godfrey, in a statement.
