Financial advisors need the right blend of tools, processes and real-world expertise around them to transcend to new levels of professional success. At the Wealth Advisor Alliance, we are proud to provide a community of fellow advisors and outsourced solutions — developed by advisors, for advisors — that independent firms need to grow with purpose and run their business the way they want.

The Wealth Advisor Alliance is supported by a team of seasoned partners and advisors who have the know-how and passion in the areas of financial planning and portfolio management. Our highly credentialed team believes that it is our responsibility to not only help our investment clients reach their financial goals but to also bring about a community of advisors who collaborate to deliver better advice to our clients.

What We Do

Founded by Forum Financial Management, LP, the Wealth Advisor Alliance offers an outsourced back-office team, suite of integrated technologies and peer-driven knowledge to help advisors scale past the inflection points that occur in a typical independent advisory firm’s growth cycle. In addition to providing services that fulfill critical back-office functions like operations, compliance and trading, among others, we are proud to offer advisors access to knowledge and expertise cultivated from a rich community of like-minded professionals. This knowledge helps each advisor design a better advisory practice because they can learn from the mistakes and successes of others. Our community regularly shares best practices and lessons learned at our semi-annual advisor conferences and at small group sessions and webinars in between.

Our Investment Philosophy

When they partner with the Wealth Advisor Alliance, financial advisors and their clients benefit from an outsourced investment program that is fee-based, low-cost, globally diversified and made up of mutual funds and ETFs offered by reputable institutional managers like Dimensional Fund Advisors (DFA) and Vanguard. Guided by a consistent, strategic investment philosophy, which is grounded in academic research and market theory, our investment models and trading processes are designed to increase your clients’ chances of obtaining long-term higher expected returns and their ultimate financial goals.

Our Mission

Through our outsourced back-office services and technology platform, our goal is to free up your time so you can focus on the client-facing activities that drive the value you deliver and the growth your firm achieves. But perhaps what is most impactful about the Wealth Advisor Alliance is how we support you as an entrepreneur. Compared to a traditional third-party platform, we not only provide you with the tools you need to build your business but also the hands-on counsel and support from highly-successful advisors who have built businesses like yours. Our partners throughout their careers have trained and advised hundreds of advisors on practice management, technology and marketing. The best teachers are those who are advisors themselves — whether it is about communicating your value proposition to a new client or sharing pitfalls encountered on our own first-hand journey as financial advisors.
