Rockville, MD, May 2, 2019 — Bronfman Rothschild, an independent investment advisor based in Rockville, Maryland, today announced the closing of its sale to Sontag Advisory (a subsidiary of NFP Corp.). Bronfman Rothschild will integrate with Sontag Advisory and the combined firms will manage $11.93 billion as of March 31, 2019. Of those assets under management, $2.4 billion will be managed by Bronfman Rothschild Plan Advisors, who will be bolstered by NFP’s comprehensive retirement and corporate benefits practice.
“We are excited about the integration of the two firms,” said Mike LaMena, president and COO of Bronfman Rothschild. LaMena, who will become CEO of the combined firms, added, “The initial feedback has been overwhelmingly supportive as clients recognize that the combination will enable us to build a wealth management firm with an even deeper pool of talent, technology and solutions that help us assist clients in meeting their goals.”
NFP first announced plans to acquire Bronfman Rothschild on March 26, 2019, also sharing that a new brand strategy for the combined firms and their shared values would launch later in 2019. As the firms integrate, Mike LaMena will assume the role of chief executive officer, Eric Sontag will become president and chief operating officer and Howard Sontag will become chairman of the combined entity.
