RUSTON, Louisiana, Sept. 17, 2019 – Argent Financial Group has been named to the 2019 LSU 100 List of Fastest-Growing Tiger Businesses for the fifth year in a row. The LSU 100 is a highly competitive program that identifies, recognizes and celebrates the 100 fastest-growing Louisiana State University graduate-owned or graduate-led businesses in the world from nominations submitted by individuals, colleagues, clients, former classmates or the businesses themselves.

“We are honored to be included on this list among so many other successful companies,” said Kyle McDonald, CEO of Argent Financial Group. “My education at LSU Law School provided a needed base of knowledge and relationships. From that base, we have formed a wonderful team of people who enrich our clients’ lives every day.”

The LSU 100, which began in 2011, celebrates the success of LSU graduates and recognizes the impact of LSU on the local, regional and national economies. Companies are confidentially ranked by Postlethwaite & Netterville by the companies’ compounded annual growth rate.

Honorees will be recognized and the rankings revealed at a black-tie-optional gala to be held at L’Auberge Casino Hotel on Friday, Nov. 22, in Baton Rouge. For more information, visit
