Tiger 21, a peer-to-peer learning network for ultra-high-net-worth investors in the United States and Canada, has formed a new group in Houston.
The Houston organization will be led by Rick Gornto, a business development and finance professional, Tiger 21 announced Wednesday. Gornto retired as managing partner of accounting firm DRDA and is founding principal of First Financial Benefits Inc., a manager of governmental pension plans.
Tiger 21 now has a presence in 19 metropolitan areas. Houston becomes the third Texas city with a TIGER 21 group. The organization formed its first Dallas group in 2007 and another in 2011. An Austin group was established in the fall of 2014.
A report released by Capgemini and RBC Wealth Management last year said Houston is home to the second fastest-growing population of new millionaires in the U.S., just behind Dallas.
Tiger 21 was founded in New York in 1999 and has 330 members with $30 billion in personal investable assets.
