The company has hired nearly 200 employees since late 2009 for its Tampa office.
The firm announced in January plans to open a new facility in Addison, Tex., a suburb of Dallas. The company plans to hire 200 financial advisors by the end of 2012. Allen said the office will open in the second quarter of 2011 and needs 50 people to get it started.
