Kingsview Partners is pleased to announce that that Broadway Financial, a New York-based RIA, has merged with the firm effective August 20, 2021. With this partnership, Kingsview also welcomes Broadway’s principal, Martin Harper, to the Kingsview Partners team.

Kingsview Partners is proud to support this merger both logistically and financially on behalf of their wealth management partners Jonathan and Ian Millman of Woodbury, NY.  Mr. Harper will remain a registered investment advisor representative with Kingsview and will continue to provide exceptional service for his clients alongside Jonathan and Ian.

Kingsview Partners Appears on the Inc. 5000 for the Fourth Consecutive Year

Kingsview Partners Appears on the Inc. 5000 for the Fourth Consecutive Year

Firm Ranks No. 1869, With A Three-Year Revenue Growth of 241%.

Inc. magazine today revealed that Kingsview Partners is number 1869 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. This year marks the fourth consecutive year Kingsview Partners has ranked, having also garnered recognition in 2018, 2019, and 2020.

The Inc. 5000 list represents the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, and Patagonia all gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

“It is an honor to be ranked amongst such a prestigious group for the fourth time in so many years,” says Kingsview CEO Sean McGillivray.”The women and men of Kingsview work diligently to always put our clients first and consistently elevate the standard of care upon which our business is built. I look forward to doing my part to ensure Kingsview continues to be a force of change in the wealth management industry.”

Kingsview Partners’ ranking on the 2021 Inc 5000 is especially noteworthy given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Their achievements during this period indicate a high degree of competitiveness within the financial industry, plus the flexibility and resilience necessary for long-term success.

“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”

Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, the companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc., which will be available on newsstands on August 20.
