Capital Square, one of the nation’s leading sponsors of tax-advantaged real estate investments and an active developer and manager of housing communities, announced today that industry veteran, Drew Jackson, has joined the firm as senior managing director, private wealth solutions and a member of the executive management team. He brings more than 25 years of experience in financial services to Capital Square, where he will nurture and expand relationships throughout the independent broker-dealer and registered investment adviser channels.
Jackson joins Capital Square from Concorde Holdings, a leading broker-dealer, registered investment adviser and insurance agency, where he most recently served as president and chief executive officer.
“We are thrilled that Drew Jackson, a well-respected and exceptionally knowledgeable leader in our industry, has joined Capital Square’s leadership team. He brings deep roots in the BD and RIA communities and is a passionate spokesman on the desirability of alternative investments as a mechanism for tax efficiency, reduced risk and increased returns,” said Louis Rogers, founder and co-chief executive officer of Capital Square. “The demand for alternative investments has never been stronger, but the programs are inherently complex and oriented towards the ultra-wealthy. Drew will help Capital Square expand access to these important investment options and further democratize alternative investments, opening up the platform to broader advisor and investor groups and driving the next phase of Capital Square’s growth.”
During his tenure with Concorde, Jackson led the alternative investment-specialist firm to the best results in company history, consistently driving positive outcomes and advocating for evolving financial services to client-centered products and programs. He has been a respected leader in the wealth management industry for years, directing programs, supporting wealth advisers and clients, and adopting solutions for tax problems through alternative investments. He was a significant driver in the development of one of the industry’s first open-architecture unified management account platforms as well as in the shift from a transaction-based to a fee-based advisory model of business. Earlier in his career, Jackson directed the wealth strategies group of Scott & Stringfellow and BB&T Securities (now Truist Financial), where he led those firm’s client-focused wealth management programs.
“Capital Square has been among the most respected commercial real estate investment firms for more than a decade, providing exceptional tax-advantaged investment opportunities for thousands of investors and their financial advisors,” said Jackson. “I am honored to join such an esteemed firm and look forward to expanding our mission to provide the finest investment opportunities to investors throughout the country.”
A graduate of Radford University with a Bachelor of Business Administration, Jackson holds numerous FINRA licenses, including series 7, 9, 10, 24, 63 and 65. He is a certified investment management analyst (CIMA) and an accredited asset management specialist (AAMS). In 2023, Jackson was a finalist for WealthManagement.com’s “CEO of the Year.”
