Aaron Wealth Advisors adds Adrianna Stasiuk, who had been with JP Morgan’s private bank for eight years.

Chicago RIA Aaron Wealth Advisors has brought on an advisor from JP Morgan.

The Dynasty Financial Partners affiliate, which oversees roughly $840m, has hired Adrianna Stasiuk to serve as a managing director. Stasiuk managed roughly $500m in client assets at JP Morgan’s private bank, according to Dynasty.

‘I have been watching recently what Aaron Wealth Advisors has been doing and how quickly they were growing and the more research I did on the independent space in general… it was just the right move for me and I’m really glad I made the switch and I’m really excited,’ Stasiuk said.

Chicago-based Aaron Wealth Advisors launched in September of 2018, when ex-Goldman Sachs advisor Gary Hirschberg chose to exit the bank’s private wealth management division.

Stasiuk told Citywire she first met Hirschberg a decade ago when she was an intern at Goldman Sachs and kept in touch over the years.

‘I really respected him and really looked up to him,’ she said. ‘I knew he had developed a really good business and was just a really respectful guy.’

Stasiuk had been at JP Morgan for the past eight years and during her time at the bank, developed a specialty in advising women who are navigating divorce.

‘A large part of that dynamic has to do with education, which I feel really strongly about,’ she said.

In addition to the hire of Stasiuk, Aaron Wealth Advisors said that it has hired ex-Northern Trust portfolio manager Toby Stannard as its director of investments. Stannard will work alongside Aaron Wealth Advisors CIO Bill Andrakakos.
