Grinney conducted extensive due diligence before moving firms, looking for one with an inclusive client-first culture, robust financial planning capabilities, a wide array of products, and support to build out her team. She discovered that Ameriprise met her criteria after she was invited to attend the firm’s annual 2022 Women’s Advisor Summit, where she met many members of senior leadership and other women advisors.

“Ameriprise has developed an impressive community for women advisors. The women’s event was inspiring, with so many top peers sharing good ideas for how we can better serve our clients,” said Grinney, who has 24 years of experience in the industry. “I’m energized by the opportunity to form a team practice, which will help us grow and serve clients well while also providing a clear succession plan to benefit their futures for decades. I started my career as an advisor in a team setting because I worked in my father’s practice for 13 years before his retirement. Ameriprise’s vast resources to support team building will allow me to mentor and develop the rest of my team in a similar inclusive setting.”

“We are truly delighted to welcome Cate and her clients to the Ameriprise family,” said Timari Robison, Ameriprise National Women’s Recruiting Director. “Ameriprise has deeply invested in the capabilities advisors need to grow their practices and help their clients achieve their biggest dreams. We’re excited to get to work helping Cate and her team harness the power of our resources and expertise to take their business to the next level.”

Grinney’s team also includes financial advisor Kailee Davis, MBA, RICP®, and support staff Beth Sammon and Bridgette Hallcock. The team, which operates under the name Cate Grinney & Kailee Davis Group, is supported by Ameriprise franchise field vice president Marcus Ranger.

Earlier this year, Cate Grinney was named to Forbes “2022 America’s Top Women Wealth Advisors Best-in-State” list1, which recognizes the industry’s top women advisors based on several factors, including levels of ethical standards, professionalism, and success in the business.

The Forbes Top Women, Best-in-State Women and Best-in-State Wealth Advisor rankings are developed by SHOOK Research and are created using an algorithm that includes both qualitative (in-person, virtual and telephone due diligence meetings; client impact; industry experience; review of best practices and compliance records; and firm nominations) and quantitative (assets under management and revenue generated for their firms) data. Certain awards include a demographic component to qualify. Investment performance is not a criterion because client objectives and risk tolerances vary, and advisors rarely have audited performance reports.
