AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 10, 2019--

Kestra Private Wealth Services, LLC (Kestra PWS), a registered investment adviser subsidiary of Kestra Financial, Inc. supporting independent advisor teams nationwide, announces the addition of newly independent advisors of Mundi Financial from Middletown, New York.


Led by CEO and Founder Bill Krivicich, the professionals of Mundi Financial offer investment management and financial planning to retirees on a discretionary, customized basis. They also specialize in using a multi-step process that incorporates several investment disciplines to create a well-rounded experience for clients, beyond the financial plan itself. Krivicich is a CFA ® charterholder and has over 20 years of experience in the industry. In his previous role, he oversaw nearly $1 billion in assets as chief investment officer.

“When I decided to establish our own, independent practice, I did a lot of due diligence on potential partners,” said Krivicich. “What we found in Kestra PWS is a team of industry experts who, quite literally, have been in our shoes. Their attention to detail and execution throughout the process was impressive and gave us a lot of confidence in the team.”

The professionals of Mundi Financial collectively oversee $200 million in assets.

“From the onset, we were impressed with Bill’s expertise, integrity, and genuine desire to take care of his clients,” said Rob Bartenstein, CEO and Senior Managing Director of Kestra PWS. “This passion for delivering superior service is ultimately what drives most wirehouse advisors to establish independent businesses, and firmly aligns with our values at Kestra PWS.”
