JHS Capital Advisors, a Tampa, Fla., based registered securities broker-dealer and registered investment advisor, continued its national expansion when it announced Monday it hired Steven R. Lofquist as a first vice president and a financial advisor.

Lofquist, who is based in JHS' office in Leawood, Kan., and manages $40 million in client assets, is a 26-year industry veteran. Before joining JHS, he worked for RBC Wealth Management, where he spent three years as a vice president.
During his tenure at RBC, he was selected to join the firm's consulting group, which is a group advisors who have demonstrated success in building consultative, fee-based businesses.  He was also named a 5-Star Wealth Manager in 2010 and 2011.  He previously worked at Smith Barney for 23 years.

At JHS, Lofquist will counsel families and businesses nationally. He specializes in comprehensive financial and retirement planning for clients.

"I joined JHS to be a part a client-focused firm," said Mr. Lofquist. "My approach of serving as a 'one-stop' financial resource for my clients by focusing on the accumulation, protection and transfer of wealth aligns perfectly with JHS's commitment to supporting and guiding clients so they can reach their long-term financial goals."

JHS clears its brokerage transactions through RBC Correspondent Services, a division of RBC Capital Markets LLC.
