Allworth Financial Partners with Stewart and Patten Company, Adds $1 Billion in Assets

Principal-owned and operated for multiple generations, the Lafayette, California, firm is Allworth’s 35th acquisition

Folsom, California, June 3, 2024 – Allworth Financial has acquired Northern California-based Stewart and Patten Company, bringing the firm to 17 California locations and 42 offices nationwide. Berkshire Global Advisors served as exclusive financial advisor to Stewart and Patten Company. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Founded in 1965 by Ronald S. Patten and John K. (Jack) Stewart, Stewart and Patten manages over $1 billion in AUM for its clients, including families, trusts, charitable foundations, retirement plans, estates, and corporations. The partnership will bring two partner-advisors and five support team members to Allworth.

“The opportunity to work with a firm that has the same dedication to clients as we have while also offloading operational responsibilities was a major factor in our decision to partner with Allworth,” said Stewart and Patten principal, Robert Gentry. “Additionally, Allworth will provide resources to us to ensure long-term business continuity.”

“We’ve traditionally had to interface with numerous outside CPAs, estate planning attorneys, and even financial planning specialists,” noted Stewart and Patten principal, Lori Sherman. “By partnering with Allworth, we will have access to comprehensive tax, estate planning and financial planning solutions while still working with outside professionals, as needed.”

“We’re honored to partner with a firm with such a rich history,” said Allworth CEO, John Bunch. “Over the past 60 years, Stewart and Patten has built an impressive firm centered around their commitment to placing the well-being of their clients ahead of all else.”
