Argent Financial Group Adds Market Leader to Memphis Team

MEMPHIS, Tennessee (May 21, 2014) – Argent Financial Group, a diversified Southern wealth and financial services firm responsible for more than $6 billion in client assets, has added Edward Brundick to its Memphis team.

Brundick will serve as market president of Argent Trust’s Memphis operations, while also partnering with Argent-subsidiary Highland Capital Management, LLC, an investment firm also based in Memphis.

“Edward has a strong track record of success, and we look forward to our partnership with him,” Steve Wishnia, CEO of Highland Capital Management, said. “Ed is a great addition to the Argent Trust team, he will be a valuable resource for both Argent as well as Highland Capital.”

With both an MBA and a law degree from the University of Memphis, Brundick began his career as an associate attorney before moving into the field of wealth management in 2005. Since then, he has gained experience in roles such as chief operating officer for Waddell & Associates, instructor of finance at the University of Memphis and managing director for Duncan-Williams.

“Furthering my career in the financial industry with a company like Argent,” said Brundick, “will definitely be challenging but I welcome the opportunity to grow and I’m excited to see what the future holds for our partnership together.”
