Asset management firm JHS Capital Advisors has hired two financial advisors in its Tampa, Fla. headquarters from Morgan Stanley Smith Barney and Oppenheimer & Co.
Jeffery Iseler and Tom Prendergast have both been registered with JHS since Jan. 6, according to their public registration records with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority.
Iseler joins JHS from Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, where he had been employed since 1999.
Prendergast most recently served at Oppenheimer. He has also been registered with H&R Block Financial Advisors and Prudential Securities, FINRA records show, and began his financial advisory career in 1986.
Neither Iseler nor Prendergast’s previous assets under management or production were disclosed by JHS, as per the firm’s policy not to release that information for individual advisors, Eileen M. Canady, vice president of strategic development and media relations at JHS, said.
With their hiring, JHS now has about 95 total financial advisors, according to Canady. JHS was founded in Dec. 2009 as an asset management firm aiming to provide advisors with independence while also giving them access to products and services like an insurance group and trading desk.
“We know everybody by name, everyone does. They can call on the leadership team any day and speak to them,” Canady said of the culture JHS offers to advisor recruits. “We absolutely have plans to continue to grow.”
