Investment manager loses right to CFP mark until January

The arbiters of the Certified Financial Planner designation last week said they and local investment manager Kay Quinn in April agreed to a settlement that suspended Quinn's right to use the CFP mark until next January. At issue are a handful rules and ethics transgressions, including advising 55 Quinn Financial Partners clients to invest in a real estate securities that weren't registered for sale in Tennessee — for which the state's Department of Commerce and Insurance censured Quinn in 2013.

Cool Springs asset manager adds CPA, former school board member

Cool Springs money manager Dave Crouch has recruited financial executive and former Williamson County Schools board member Cherie Hammond to help him build Aspen Grove Asset Management, the eight-year-old firm that manages about $65 million. Hammond, who is married to media entrepreneur Dan Hammond, also challenged Glen Casada in last year's election for the state House District 63 seat.

As an alternative to product-based financial advisors, Crouch has built the firm’s reputation on intensive management of personally selected individual securities portfolios. Although Hammond will focus on business development in the short term, she plans to earn her Series 7 and Series 66 licenses and become an Investment Advisor Representative within the year.
