Mission Wealth Announces Merger with Green Valley Wealth Management

Mission Wealth LP announced today that it has merged with Green Valley Wealth Management, an investment firm that operates out of Greensboro, NC and oversees approximately $90 million in assets under management. Green Valley Wealth Management’s talented team strengthens Mission Wealth’s existing client service experience in North Carolina. The partnership establishes a location in the Southeastern Region, allowing Mission Wealth to better serve the needs of future clientele in this area.

“We are thrilled to welcome the entire team at Green Valley Wealth Management to Mission Wealth. From our very first conversation with Phyllis, Susan, and Beth, we knew their team’s passion for comprehensive wealth management, investment counsel, and community involvement was a perfect fit. The addition of Green Valley will add to our existing presence in the Southeast and allow us to better serve the growing needs of our clientele in the region. As we have gotten to know each other better over recent months, it has solidified my respect for what Green Valley has built, confirmed our strong cultural match, and reinforced our collective belief in the importance of continuously enhancing the client experience.”
