LEXINGTON, Ky. — Ross, Sinclaire & Associates has hired Matthew Brewsaugh as a wealth manager in the firm’s Lexington, Ky. office.
The announcement comes as Cincinnati-based RSA continues to expand its wealth management staff and grow its Private Client Group.
“My philosophy of wealth management is that we have to address it as problem solvers for our clients,” said Kevin Thompson, director of RSA’s Private Client Group. “We find out where they are, where they want to be, figure out how to get them there and then walk them down that road.
“I was first impressed by Matthew’s tenacity, professionalism and client service model,” Thompson said. “He’s a problem solver that brings substantive risk management expertise to RSA’s Private Client Group.”
Brewsaugh, who grew up in Danville, Ky. and attended Midway College and the University of Kentucky, previously worked as an independent financial advisor, a financial sales consultant with PNC and a financial representative with AIG.
“I felt that RSA’s culture of being a client first firm would be wonderful to be a part of,” Brewsaugh said. “RSA allows outside the box strategies, which allows us to not only separate ourselves from the pack, but also help clients reach their goals in a more personalized, effective and ethical manner. After investigating the history of the company, it became clear to me that RSA was a place that truly prioritized the goals of its clients above everything else.”
Brewsaugh said he follows three guiding principles as an investment advisor and wealth manager: respect, honesty and motivation.
“These principles have been key to my success in the business,” he said. “I believe no one can truly serve their clients without respecting not only their wishes but them as people, and being honest with them about the solutions you can provide, as well as the way you do business. Motivation will always be key to achieving your own goals, but it is also immensely important to be motivated to find the best way to assist your clients.”
