Angeles Wealth Management Appoints Rick Nott as Managing Director, Capping the Sixth Straight Year of Strong Growth
Nott brings more than 15 years of wealth management experience, adding to the firm's comprehensive private wealth services and solutions
Santa Monica, CA, February 6th, 2024 — Angeles Wealth Management, LLC, ("Angeles Wealth"), a national wealth management firm serving generationally wealthy families, today announced the hiring of Rick Nott, CFA, CFP®, CPWA®, as Managing Director. Operating out of Angeles Wealth's Santa Monica office, Nott serves as a "financial architect" for clients. He specializes in building bespoke plans and investment portfolios that aim to balance long-term capital accumulation with the building of an enduring legacy spanning multiple generations.
Nott brings more than 15 years of experience in wealth management with a specific focus on asset allocation and financial planning. At Angeles Wealth, Nott will utilize the firm's institutional-caliber investment process to create highly tailored and customized wealth management plans for ultra-high-net-worth (UHNW) families and individuals, including athletes, business owners and entrepreneurs. Prior to joining the firm, he was a senior wealth advisor at LourdMurray, and also spent time as an advisor at AdvicePeriod and Signature Estate and Investment Advisors. Nott started his career in wealth management at United Capital Financial Advisors.
"My career began during the global financial crisis, where I learned the value of crafting a financial design that is not only aligned with client goals, but that is structured to encourage a long-term focus on generational wealth creation and preservation," said Nott. "I'm excited to be joining Angeles Wealth, and its team-oriented approach, that maintains a culture of constant growth, learning and improvement."
Nott's arrival at Angeles Wealth caps off a sixth consecutive year of strong growth, as the firm's assets under management (AUM) now exceed $1.7 billion, propelled by over 40 percent year-over-year AUM growth in 2023. Angeles Wealth's growth has been wholly organic since its inception, and over the last six years, the firm has achieved a nearly 40 percent compound annual growth rate in AUM.
"Just as an architect purposefully designs a house to withstand the elements, Rick applies a similar approach to financial planning for clients. His process seeks to provide stability and a runway for building and protecting multi-generational wealth," said Jonathan Foster, President and CEO of Angeles Wealth. "The enemy of planning is emotion, and Rick's focus on the long-term view will help our clients navigate their wealth across generations."
In the past year, Angeles Wealth has continued to bolster its private wealth team to better serve its UHNW and philanthropic clients. Most recently, Angeles Wealth announced Edward Lowndes as Chief Operating Officer and Chief Compliance Officer to oversee the firm's flourishing operations. Angeles Wealth also elevated Chloe Wohlforth to partner, a role in which she will continue to advise family clients on financial planning and investment management.
