Executive Vice President & Senior Advisor
SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio’s Ulrich Investment Consultants has completed another acquisition.
The RIA firm, which manages $1.8 billion has acquired Strategic Wealth Management Inc., an RIA managing $800m in Kirkland, WA. As part of the acquisition Ulrich will be gaining four employees from Strategic Wealth Management. Financial terms of the deal are not disclosed.
The announcement comes on the heels of an active 2021, which saw Ulrich open its local headquarters in mid-town San Antonio, in the newly-opened office building, The Soto, Texas’ first mass timber development. The firm invited the local community to celebrate by hosting a grand opening event in March of this year.
The firm, which also has offices in Albuquerque, NM and Spokane, WA, specializes in financial management of high net-worth individuals and their families. Ulrich is also one of a small number of wealth management firms nationwide that specialize in financial management for Native American Tribes.
Acquiring Strategic Wealth Management allows Ulrich to expand its presence among Native American Tribes.
“The tribal side is unique,” said John Ulrich, Ulrich Investment Consultants CEO. “Working with tribal governments requires an intricate understanding of how tribes work. It is a lot like working with small municipalities. We have served tribal communities for three decades, and are now even better positioned to support the growing financial needs of these communities. With over 500 tribes nationwide, Strategic Wealth Management deepens our relationships and our knowledge in this area.”
The newly-formed team will work closely with tribal clients to ensure integration of financial policy, planning and management processes with investment solutions and strategies.
James Sizemore, SWM’s Chief Financial Officer and Director of Native American Services, will join Ulrich as a partner and lead the Native American Consulting
practice. Sizemore has served as an independent Tribal auditor and, for more than a decade, as a Tribal finance director and controller of a major Native American tribe. He has focused his work exclusively on consulting for or on behalf of Native American tribes since 1986.
Ulrich will leverage his deep understanding to enrich its suite of services.
Comprehensive services offered to tribal clients include:
● Strategic financial planning
● Debt management
● Development of fiscal and financial management policies
● Development of budget and administration processes
● Assistance with credit and financing of tribal infrastructures and enterprises
● Assistance with coordinating and reconciling funds at the Office of Trust Funds Management (“OTFM”)
● Planning for Self-Determination contracting/compacting
● Training for Finance Department managers and employees
“We understand the dynamics of our tribal communities,” said Ulrich. “These growing communities are seeking resources to help protect and grow their wealth. We believe there is a significant opportunity to serve these groups. We want to be an ally in their financial future.”
