Quqa launched Crescent after almost seven years at Edward Jones to better serve his community of business owners and high-net-worth clients as an independent advisor.

I’m confident Crescent will be better positioned to deliver a memorable client experience and achieve exponential growth by transitioning to independence.”

Client service associates Mona Amiri, Heidi Moreno and Ibraheem Amin, who have been with Quqa for years, will continue to be integral members of the team following this transition. These talented individuals are excited to see how RFG’s support will introduce immediate gains in efficiency, streamlining everything from client onboarding to portfolio management and alleviating the burden of administrative tasks.

“We are delighted to welcome Ahmad and his team to the RFG family,” said Shannon Spotswood, president at RFG Advisory. “One of our main tenets is ‘supported independence,’ and that means partnering with entrepreneurial-minded advisors who are serious about growing their business. We can’t wait to see the Crescent team meet and exceed their goals.”
