Linscomb & Williams, a fee-only RIA with $2 billion in assets under management, announced Tuesday  it is opening an office in Birmingham, Ala.

"Opening an office in Birmingham is a natural evolution given the commitment of our parent company, Cadence Bank, in the area,” J. Harold Williams, the firm's CEO, said in a statement. “This move complements our mission to serve clients as a wealth manager and fiduciary.”

The office will be led by Sheri Robinson, a senior financial planner with more than 20 years of experience in the industry. Prior to joining the firm in April, she was a wealth strategist for BBVA Wealth Solutions, a subsidiary of BBVA Compass.

In her new role, Robinson will provide wealth management strategies including comprehensive financial planning and investment management.

"We couldn't have asked for a better person to lead our efforts in the Alabama market than Sheri," says Jim Atkinson, executive vice president for Linscomb & Williams. "She is a highly accomplished wealth advisor whose talents and experience will help Linscomb & Williams grow.”
