St. Louis, MO, February 2021 — Smith Moore, a nationally recognized wealth management firm founded over 100 years ago, announced that it has opened a new branch office location in Fulton, Missouri. This new branch opening reflects Smith Moore’s ongoing growth in the region and commitment to serving clients in the Midwest and Southeast.

President & CEO Jim Deutsch announced the formal opening of the new Fulton branch location, which will be led by experienced, local investment professionals: Financial Advisors Aaron Rigdon and Tim Borman, and Client Associate, Blaine McQuaid Pestle. The team joins Smith Moore from Cetera Financial Group.

“We chose to join Smith Moore because they foster an independent approach and mindset that will provide us more flexibility with how we serve our clients,” says Borman. “Our clients will be able to experience the benefits of a boutique practice with the resources of a full-service firm.”

Rigdon commented: “Our focus will remain on serving the complex wealth management needs of our clients and helping them preserve and grow their wealth across generations. And I look forward to serving our clients out of Smith Moore’s new Fulton branch and the firm’s existing Columbia branch.”

The new Smith Moore branch office is located at 534 Court Street, Fulton, MO 65251 and the team can be reached at (573) 544-2027.


“As Smith Moore continues to expand its footprint, Aaron, Tim, and Blaine are an ideal addition to our business,” says Deutsch. “We’re very happy to welcome them to Smith Moore.”

Regional Manager Greg Church continued, “They bring over three decades of combined wealth management experience to our firm, and they leverage a team-oriented approach to providing clients an elevated level of service to support their full financial picture.”

Founded in 1913, Smith Moore has grown to include a total of nine branch locations, with branches in Missouri, Illinois, Kansas and Mississippi. Smith Moore provides financial counsel for every stage of life through an integrated financial strategy that evolves as clients move through all phases of wealth planning: Accumulation, Distribution, and Legacy.
