Sanctuary Wealth Continues to Expand its Institutional Platform with the Addition of Two Fixed Income Offices in Tampa, FL and Dallas, TX
INDIANAPOLIS, IN, November 15, 2018 – Sanctuary Wealth (“Sanctuary”) has announced that Andy Lewis and Rob Hyken have affiliated with Sanctuary to drive its institutional fixed income business and head the Tampa, Florida office while Greg Thompson, in association with Sanctuary, will continue to build his institutional business through the Cullen Asher (USA) LLC office in Dallas, Texas.
In pursuing its growth strategy in the institutional fixed income arena, Sanctuary has affiliated with Andy Lewis and Rob Hyken, both seasoned top producers with outstanding expertise in institutional fixed income, and specializations in corporate finance and investment banking, private equity, and lending. With more than 40 years of combined experience, each has significant expertise and tenure in institutional securities on both the buy and sell sides, and across diverse instruments including high yield, commercial mortgage-backed, and other securitized investments. “We are looking forward to working with Sanctuary’s elite network of Advisors,” says Lewis. “These consummate professionals are bright, creative, and eager for sophisticated capital markets opportunities that we are ready to bring to the table.” Adds Hyken, “We are excited to work with Sanctuary Advisors and believe it’s a win-win; for us, the opportunity to learn more about the complexities of the wealth management market, and for Sanctuary and its clients, greater access to a wider range of securities and alternative investments.”
Sanctuary President and Founder Jim Dickson says, “I’m confident that Andy and Rob have the industry contacts to source whatever a client may need, the knowledge and skill to help clients leverage investments to minimize risk.”
Cullen Asher Capital Markets is an institutional client-centered financial services firm established by Greg Thompson in 2010 that focuses on analytics as well as the trading and sales of fixed-income securities. “Cullen Asher recognizes the innovation and infinite opportunities the Sanctuary Wealth platform offers us to expand and develop our institutional business,” says Thompson. “We view the capable, flexible, and independent Sanctuary Wealth platform as fundamental to navigating successfully the debt capital markets in today’s evolving credit and regulatory environment. Creating investment strategies for institutional investors based on needs for preservation of capital, liquidity, and risk tolerances requires our firm to pursue the path of best execution and work unconstrained on their behalf.”
Robert Walter, Senior Managing Director and leader of Sanctuary’s growing institutional and independent broker-dealer business, states, “We are pleased to welcome Cullen Asher to the Sanctuary family. The firm’s track record of exceptional results, diverse relationships, and outstanding customer service along with its culture of integrity and trust are an ideal fit for us. Together, our strengths combine exponentially to enhance our ability to meet the needs of the institutional investor — not just with capital markets services, but also with a comprehensive suite of risk management solutions, analytics, asset management, valuation, and advisory capabilities.”
Jim Dickson adds, “We are fortunate to welcome Andy, Rob and the Cullen Asher team to Sanctuary. Their contributions will be essential to our continued growth and our ability to reach and serve a broader constituency.”
