Houston’s Monroe Vos Joins CAPTRUST
Raleigh, NC—March 9, 2023—CAPTRUST Financial Advisors (CAPTRUST) announced today the addition of Monroe Vos Consulting (Monroe Vos).

The firm provides advisory services for retirement plan sponsors, endowments, and foundations and provides wealth management services to high-net-worth individuals and family offices.
The firm brings its entire team of 17 colleagues to CAPTRUST and more than $5.8 billion in assets.
“The genesis of Monroe Vos was to avoid conflicts of interest and to put clients first—and the alignment of these values led us to choose CAPTRUST. CAPTRUST’s culture and philosophy have a lot of similarities to ours at Monroe Vos. We had commonality when it comes to the care of the client,” said Vos.
This addition bolsters CAPTRUST’s presence in Houston and Birmingham, joining the firm’s existing wealth, retirement plan, and endowment and foundation practices in these regions. CAPTRUST has had an established presence in Texas for more than a decade and continues to grow, with more than 100 employees.
