The Red Stick Group at Morgan Stanley 400 Convention St., Ste. 400 Baton Rouge, LA 70802 (225) 237-3153 fa.morganstanley.com/redstick KENNETH L. RICHE JR. is a Financial Advisor and financial management veteran who has worked for the past 15 years with partners Brad Smith (a Financial Advisor and Chartered Retirement Plans Specialist) and Tessa Gautreaux (who has worked her way up from sales assistant to the role of Financial Advisor). The three bonded together and formed the Red Stick Group at Morgan Stanley, seeking to fulfill the needs of clients who, like them, live, work, volunteer, pay taxes, educate, socialize and enhance the lives of the people who call Greater Baton Rouge home. They believe that an out-of-town advisor cannot offer the same sense of shared community. Ashley Judice, Registered Associate and Mason Ibert, Financial Advisor have recently rounded out the team and its talents. The Red Stick Group at Morgan Stanley is a team of experienced Financial Advisors who are committed to guiding clients and their families through a lifetime of asset and liability decisions, including those involved in retirement and legacy planning. “We approach our business as we approach our lives—with integrity, loyalty, trust, and a strong sense of God and Family,” says Riche. “We created the Red Stick Group to be a premier wealth management team in Baton Rouge. We rely on the capabilities of Morgan Stanley, yet we offer our clients a personal experience similar to that of a boutique. We build our business on a holistic wealth management approach. Our ongoing focus on planning, implementation and regular monitoring helps us establish long-lasting, multigenerational client relationships. Our mission is to make sure that our clients’ wealth truly serves, rather than complicates, their lives.” ©2017 Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC. Member SIPC. CRC1797952 05/17

Lee, Dougherty & Ferrara Investment Management 4611 Bluebonnet Blvd., Ste. A Baton Rouge, LA 70809 (225) 757-1177 LDFwealth.com PRIOR TO forming Lee, Dougherty & Ferrara Investment Management and joining LPL Financial nearly 14 years ago, the founding partners each spent several years with Edward Jones. During that time, Lester, Perry and Ricky assumed various responsibilities beyond being investment advisors, including serving as limited partners, hiring and training of new advisors and various managerial roles. The addition of seven financial consultants has brought experience to the firm from several prominent, national brokerage firms. This broad diversity of experience and investment philosophies enhances the value of advice that Lee, Dougherty & Ferrara provides. In fact, breadth of experience is a strength that plays directly to the founding vision of this firm: To serve clients by offering objective advice and implementing a holistic, consultative approach. “We work diligently to determine a client’s specific purpose for investing so that we can define realistic goals,” says Lester Lee. “Our most fulfilling relationships are those in which we have been able to foster frequent and open communication, with the intention of providing comprehensive planning to assist with the ‘big picture’—helping clients manage wealth throughout the many stages of an investor’s life cycle.” A typical advisor can be hired simply to manage money, but the advisors of Lee, Dougherty & Ferrara find their greatest reward in doing more, becoming an important and lasting part of their clients’ lives. For hundreds of families, this has meant creating, implementing and following a financial plan, whether for educational savings, retirement planning or wealth transfer to the next generation.

The Manne Lejeune Team at Morgan Stanley

Angelique Manne Molly Lejeune 400 Convention St., Ste. 400 Baton Rouge, LA 70802 (225) 237-3136 fa.morganstanley.com/mannelejeuneteam A SHARED love for numbers laid the groundwork for the careers of Angelique Manne and Molly Lejeune, Financial Advisors at Morgan Stanley, but it’s their common passion for working with people that has made them a successful team in the world of financial management. “I have had a passion for numbers and money for as long as I can remember, but my finance coursework at Southern Methodist University opened my eyes to transitioning that passion into a profession,” says Lejeune. Similarly, Manne earned a degree in math at the University of Denver, but followed her passion for people to an MBA and a master’s in finance. Both are veterans of the J.P. Morgan Private Bank. Along with a broad background in banking and finance, what sets the team apart in the world of financial advisors is that they view their clients as family. “We are driven every day to protect our clients’ lifetime of hard work and wealth accumulation,” says Manne. “We aim to deliver financial strategies that go beyond basic financial advice and help guide major life decisions over multiple generations.” Their goal is to be a trusted part of each family whom a husband or wife would call first when something happens to their spouse. That’s why they earn the majority of their new relationships through referrals from existing clients. ©2017 Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC. Member SIPC. CRC1798367 05/17
