Lawing Financial Inc. has made its second expansion move of the new year, this time opening an office in Nashville, Tenn.

The Overland Park-based investment management and financial planning firm now has eight locations. In January, the company acquired a Springfield, Mo., financial services company that managed $300 million in assets.

The Nashville office officially opened Feb. 3.

Lawing Financial, which was formed in the early 1980s by Kerry Lawing, manages more than $3 billion in assets. The firm said its assets have growth by about 40 percent annually over the last five years.

The company has about 90 investment advisers and another 35 on staff. Its other offices are in Dallas, Denver, Minneapolis and Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Lawing said it does business in more than 40 states. The company has two offices in Springfield.
