Fifth Third Wealth Advisors Surpasses $1 Billion in Assets Under Management

CINCINNATI—In less than 18 months since announcing its launch, Fifth Third Bank's independent Registered Investment Advisor, Fifth Third Wealth Advisors, has exceeded $1 billion in assets under management (AUM).

"This milestone is a result of the dedication of our teams who bring the utmost in tailored solutions and service and their clients who place their trust in us," said Eric Housman, president Fifth Third Wealth Advisors.

Fifth Third Wealth Advisors currently has seven teams serving clients across the country regardless of geographic location. The national practice looks beyond the traditional Fifth Third regional boundaries and is not restricted by the Bank’s footprint when recruiting.

According to Datos Insights U.S. Registered Investment Advisor Landscape Report, more than 5,000 RIAs serve clients in today’s wealth markets, but less than 20 percent have more than $750 million in AUM.

Housman says that Fifth Third Wealth Advisors hybrid model offers advisors the ability to take advantage of Fifth Third Wealth Advisors' flexible investment management platform while also providing access to trust powers, credit and planning through Fifth Third. Complete back-office support and dedicated onboarding resources provide advisors with a seamless transition.

"We believe we offer the look, feel and nimbleness of an independent boutique backed by a top-performing regional bank. We give our teams more time to focus on clients and deepening client relationships," he added.
