You have the vision and the passion. And now, you have the opportunity. If you have wondered whether it is the right time to become an independent financial advisor, the Wealth Advisor Alliance has the answers to your questions. We specialize in helping ambitious financial advisors and aspiring entrepreneurs take their RIA firms to the next level.

We offer independence with options to get you up and running while building your career your way. Leverage our services and support to focus your best energies on your most valuable resources: your clients and your team. We can help you:

  • Outsource trades and reports so you can spend more time with clients and team members.
  • Tap into innovative technology solutions to provide seamless client experiences.
  • Hand off compliance, billing and back-office operations to a team of professionals with deep experience in providing premium client service and support.

Choose Your Own Path

If you have decided to start the process of building your own firm, the Wealth Advisor Alliance can help you find the right path while keeping your options open as your journey evolves:

  • Affiliate as a semi-independent advisor with Forum Financial Management, an established advisory firm with $6.6 billion in AUM, which avoids the six- to 12-month delay of registering your own RIA, developing a brand strategy and independent website, and other setup costs.
  • Launch as an independent RIA with your own brand while leveraging our fully supported technology and BackOffice operations team.

As your practice grows, you can always choose a different path and may aspire to become a full equity partner in our parent company, Forum Financial Management.
