Outsourcing Services for Financial Advisors

As a financial advisor, the greatest value you bring to your clients is offering advice and expertise, not running a back office or handling administrative tasks. With the Wealth Advisor Alliance, you gain the resources and expertise you need to grow and thrive.

Forum Financial Management, LP founded the Wealth Advisor Alliance to pool the resources of like-minded investment advisory firms who deliver comprehensive wealth management services and investment solutions built around Dimensional Fund Advisors and Vanguard. We deliver comprehensive TAMP services and succession planning solutions to DFA advisors and RIAs that share this philosophy.

Who We Serve

The solo financial advisor looking for community and growth. The ensemble firm preparing the next generation of partners. The seasoned financial advisor planning for succession or continuity. No matter where you are in your advisory career, together we can solve the technology and scalability burdens we each face as independent advisor-owned companies.

Solo Advisors

With Forum, you can better leverage your time and increase the chances of raising your client engagement, referral and revenue rates.

Maintain Independence

If you choose to retain your RIA firm to keep brand consistency, control core differentiation elements or target a specialized niche, the Wealth Advisor Alliance provides highly efficient back-office services for RIA firms and a community of like-minded advisors. We take care of the processes that keep your business running — you take care of your clients.

Investing Driven by Evidence

We have developed and refined a consistent, strategic investment philosophy supported by a significant body of academic research and market theory. An approach grounded in academia may sound boring — but we wholeheartedly disagree with that assessment. In fact, we could talk for hours about the five-factor model and the power of globally diversified portfolios. If you love data, you have come to the right place.
