Stephens Hires Adam Crow as Managing Director of its Wealth Planning and Strategy Group

Stephens, an independent financial services firm, announced today the hiring of Adam Crow as Managing Director of its Wealth Planning and Strategy Group, an extension of its Private Client Group division dedicated to highly-sophisticated and complex financial planning. Mr. Crow brings to the firm over 15 years of legal and financial planning experience addressing the unique opportunities and issues raised by significant wealth.

In his new role, Mr. Crow will lead the Wealth Planning and Strategy Group and coordinate the delivery of strategic financial and estate and tax planning advice to ultra-high-net-worth individuals, families and privately-held businesses. He will apply a consultative approach to unique and specialized client matters such as liquidity events and other major life and business transitions, while offering guidance related to legacy plans, family financial education and estate meetings. Mr. Crow and the Group-at-large will liaise across Stephens’ divisions, responding to varied client needs with customized programs.

Prior to joining Stephens, Mr. Crow was a member of Rose Law Firm, where he was recognized as one of the area’s top practitioners and worked with many of the highest net worth families and largest closely-held businesses in the region, including Stephens and its clients.

“Adam has extensive experience helping high-net worth clients and businesses navigate sophisticated financial and personal planning matters. He is a meaningful addition to our team and his expertise will allow him to seamlessly collaborate with our existing clients and their advisors to develop and implement comprehensive wealth strategies,” stated Kevin Scanlon, Executive Vice-President and Head of Stephens Private Client Group. “We believe our Wealth Planning and Strategy Group not only complements our existing services but enhances our capabilities throughout the department and firm. We look forward to Adam’s contributions to this effort,” he concluded.

Mr. Crow added: “I am thrilled to be joining Stephens and am excited to collaborate with my colleagues to advise clients and prospects on all types of wealth transfer and planning matters, such as trusts and estates, taxation, and family governance issues. As we begin to enter the largest generational transfer of wealth in history, I look forward to assisting clients and their families as they navigate and best prepare for this transition.”

Mr. Crow received his Master of Laws (LL.M.) in Taxation from New York University School of Law. He received a Juris Doctor (with honors) from the University of Arkansas School of Law and a B.S.B.A. in Finance from the University of Arkansas. He will be based in Little Rock.
