[GRAPHIC] How Hank McLarty of Gratus Capital built the firm he wanted. 

One of the beauties of having a registered investment advisor, or RIA, like we are, you can determine what areas of expertise you need to hire and what people on your team you need to bring in. And so hiring professionals that I could select and that I could determine was the level that we needed in these various areas was one of the freeing things of having my own firm versus being told who I needed to work with by a corporation. So it’s a great feeling to see that something that you’ve created with your own hands and worked with a team environment to build is very satisfying.
