The practices will merge under the Informed Family Financial Services brand, with Informed Family Financial Services acquiring two staff members and a pair of offices in Reading and the Lehigh Valley.
"This is a major moment for our team as we expand our presence in eastern Pennsylvania," said Informed Family co-founder, CEO and CFO Jeffrey Bush. "We're committed to giving the families we represent confidence and clarity as they transition through various life stages, and this expansion allows us to bring that mission to even more Pennsylvania families."
Earl D. Schultz, president of Strategic Wealth Advisory, joins Informed Family Financial Services as a senior financial consultant, along with Shannon LaRosse, who joins Informed Family Financial Services as an investment advisor representative.
