A Visionary with Proven Expertise
Adriel Tam arrives at AdvisorCheck with a track record of success in the financial sector. His previous role as CEO and Co-Founder of Viridian Advisors, a registered investment advisory (RIA) and tax planning firm, showcased his ability to lead and innovate. Viridian Advisors’ acquisition by Edelman Financial Engines in 2021, with assets under management (AUM) of nearly $1 billion, further attests to Tam’s leadership prowess.
Tam’s professional journey includes diverse senior leadership roles within both nonprofit and for-profit entities. Notably, he serves as an Investment Committee Member at Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Western Washington and Alaska for over 16 years. Additionally, Tam holds the position of Board Member and Trustee at the Wing Luke Museum in Seattle, underscoring his commitment to community engagement.
AdvisorCheck’s Quest for Transparency
Since its inception in 2021, AdvisorCheck has been dedicated to providing investors with a comprehensive and user-friendly platform for evaluating and monitoring financial advisors. Leveraging cutting-edge technology, AdvisorCheck’s database platform compiles millions of data points, simplifying the process of assessing and tracking financial advisors throughout their client relationships. The company’s recent launch of AdvisorCheck+ further elevates its offerings by enabling investors to conduct comparison background checks on advisors they are considering and maintaining continuous monitoring of their selected advisor.
Rob McGrath, AdvisorCheck Board Chairman, expresses his enthusiasm for Tam’s appointment: “We’re delighted to welcome Adriel to the AdvisorCheck team. His unparalleled expertise in the wealth management space, combined with his proficiency in effective company management, make him an ideal leader. Adriel’s alignment with our values and vision positions us for a successful collaboration.”
A Vision for Growth and Transformation
Tam’s entry as CEO aligns with AdvisorCheck’s strategic objectives of assembling a dynamic team of industry experts to drive expansion within the financial planning and investment sectors. Under Tam’s leadership, the company has entered a phase of institutional and private capital raising. A pre-seed funding round of $1.8 million was secured earlier this year, and a seed round is slated for launch in August 2023.
Tam envisions a future in which AdvisorCheck plays a pivotal role in fostering consumer transparency and advisor advocacy. “Our platform’s daily traffic of over three thousand visitors reflects the growing demand for transparency and accountability,” remarks Tam. “I’m dedicated to increasing these numbers significantly to benefit investors and enhance consumer transparency. Our next round of funding will catapult us from a proof of concept to a market disruptor, and I’m thrilled to join this remarkable team.”
