Newly combined practice group sought innovative, resourceful platform.

Tampa, FL (April 1, 2022) – Two experienced financial advisors have combined their financial practice  capabilities and took a leap ahead today when they joined Signature Financial Solutions, ranked as one of the largest Tampa Bay-area financial advisory firms.

Kevin Cool, a 21-year financial services veteran, formerly with John Hancock and AIG in the Tampa Bay area, has helped numerous advisors   design investment and insurance strategies to fit a wide range of unique   needs. Kevin joins with Jim Grady, a former managing principal of the St.   Petersburg office of Lincoln Financial Advisors and himself a 34-year   financial services veteran.

The new team brings their 55-years of combined experience to Signature  Financial Solutions, which itself has a corporate lineage dating back to the  1930s. 

“Jim and I have ample experience and a desire to grow our combined  practice. What we lacked was a firm that could provide the hands-on  support for our day-to-day activities that also had the resources required to  empower our practice with the resources a digital platform requires today.  That’s a high bar to meet. We needed a paperless new business processing platform to help us grow efficiently, robust data security systems to help  protect our clients and our practice, 24/7 client account access, support for  the numerous apps required to be digital-capable, and a turnkey peer support community because while we wanted our independence we appreciate how peers can help you  identify and solve common problems more quickly than when you’re operating alone. After a thorough  search we found everything on that list with Signature Financial Solutions and their affiliation with one  of the largest financial networks in the US”, Cool explained.
