Perspective Financial Services Enters Strategic Partnership with Thrivent Advisor Network

May 26, 2023

These are exciting times at Perspective as we engage in a strategic partnership with Thrivent Advisor Network (TAN). Established in 2019, TAN is an independent platform for purpose-driven advisors with shared values. Perspective has become its 25th affiliate. TAN combines the resources and flexibility of a hybrid RIA business model with the benefits of a collaborative community of advisors and business owners who are driven by their beliefs and values.

Mike McCann founded Perspective 20 years ago as a sole proprietorship, with the goal of helping his clients navigate the uncertainty of the markets and the economy. The firm grew rapidly and steadily, and today its team of eight is entirely client-facing and client-focused.

“We conducted a deliberate and extensive search for a strategic alliance that could support our growing operations and technology needs,” McCann said. “More importantly, we also needed a partner firm that would align with our values and treasure the client experience in the same way we do. TAN’s unique structure provides that for us.”

Carolyn Armitage, President of TAN, said, “We provide services that help advisors streamline their processes, focus on their clients, and achieve meaningful growth. We wholeheartedly welcome Perspective Financial Services to the Thrivent Advisor Network. Over the past two decades, Mike and his team have differentiated themselves by focusing not only on achieving their clients’ financial goals, but also on improving clients’ lives and having a positive impact on their communities.”

“We’re excited about our continued growth, with TAN’s broad operational support, as well as the strength, flexibility, and autonomy it offers,” McCann continued. “Having this fantastic team as our back office provides increased bench strength and new opportunities while maintaining a purpose-based business.”
