LCP In The News

March 2021

Lakeview Capital Partners (“LCP”) transitions from the institutional business to focus on exclusively serving individuals and families in the wealth management space.

LCP is excited to announce the formation of Lakeview Private Wealth (“LPW”), a newly created and wholly owned division of Lakeview Capital Partners. Lakeview Private Wealth will focus on core competencies with individuals and families, as well as grow its ultra-high net worth (“UHNW”) family office-style division. This additional division will also offer current and future retail clients of LCP access to an even greater level of advice and services traditionally reserved for only the UHNW.

Chuck Rice, a 34-year Wall Street veteran with extensive expertise in the private wealth arena, will serve as CEO of Lakeview Capital Partners, including the Private Wealth and retail divisions of the company. Rice has spent the last 15 years in a senior leadership position at a top Wall Street firm, focused on families with $25 million plus in assets. Rice is building a team of investment advisors at LCP with specific expertise in the UHNW space.

The Private Wealth group’s product and service platform will help clients establish family governance and bring focus to philanthropy, tax and estate planning, and wealth transfer strategies. The group will consist of a team of advisors, custodians, asset managers, tax and estate planners, and CPA’s to provide guidance on planning and investments for ultra-high net worth individuals and families.

“Ultimately, Lakeview Private Wealth looks to distinguish itself from the competition through experience and emotional intelligence,” says Rice. “We focus on deep relationships with our clients, because in the end, it’s the people who matter most. And, the best place to do this is in the independent RIA space.“
