Wilde Wealth Management Group — independent financial services firm with offices in Scottsdale, Tempe, Glendale, Payson, Tucson and Indiana — announced the addition of Anthony Cosentino to the team.
The Scottsdale resident has joined the firm as an independent investment advisor, according to a press release, noting his role will focus on helping clients prepare for critical financial events in their lives such as retirement, strategic investment planning and caring for future generations.
He will work from the firm’s Scottsdale headquarter office at 7025 N. Scottsdale Road, Suite 115. Cosentino started his career in the financial services industry in 2012, first in banking before moving to finance in 2014.
Recently he worked at Vanguard. He earned his bachelor’s degree in Finance from Arizona State University and has his Series 7, 63, 65 registrations as well as his Certified Financial Planner designation, the release said.
“To me, holistic planning – the integration of tax, estate and life protection planning along with guidance on investments – while maintaining the highest of ethical standards and building an authentic relationship with my clients is paramount,” says Cosentino in a prepared statement.
“Wilde’s ability to provide comprehensive retirement, investment, real estate, insurance, legal and tax planning services all under one roof ultimately led me to their team, but what made me make the move was their service-focused approach and principled business practices.”
Barron’s recently named Wilde Wealth Management founder and CEO Trevor Wilde to its annual list of top 1,200 advisors nationwide and No. 2 overall in Arizona, the release said, noting Wilde’s 13th consecutive year being honored and his third consecutive year among the top five advisors in Arizona.
According to Barron’s, the rankings are based on data provided by over 4,000 of the nation’s most productive advisors.
“Factors included in the rankings are assets under management and revenue produced for the firm, but also regulatory record, quality of practice and philanthropic work, each of which matters deeply to me and made the decision to join the team an even easier one,” says Cosentino.
“Anthony is joining our team during what has been the biggest growth period in our history,” says Wilde in a prepared statement. “We recently invested in doubling the size of our Scottsdale office and look forward to Anthony being among our first leaders in the new space.
This is on the heels of expanding our Tempe office as well as partnering with both Muhlenfeld & Huish and Self Wealth Management in Scottsdale, Mosaic Financial Associates in Tempe and Premier Wealth Management Albuquerque over the past 18 months alone, despite the pandemic.”
