It is one thing to offer technology and investment solutions — it is quite another to create a community of like-minded advisors that support each other through all stages of business growth. At the Wealth Advisor Alliance, our goal is to do both.

As the advisor recruiting and outsourcing division of Forum Financial Management, the Wealth Advisor Alliance follows the same mission to empower people to reimagine and achieve what is possible. Specifically, we strive to build a collaborative community of advisors who proactively call upon their peers’ diverse backgrounds, skills and perspectives to better serve their clients.

Being advisors ourselves, our shared vision is to remain a 100% advisor‐owned partnership designed to improve lives and provide continuity across generations. We help advisors at every stage of their growth cycle to deliver better advice and serve more clients with scalable technology and back-office support.

Becoming a Part of the Wealth Advisor Alliance

We plan for a smooth transition for advisors and their teams. We stagger the process to make each step manageable. Our goal varies slightly depending on the complexity of each transition. For the solo- or dual-practitioner office, we will help prepare for the transition about two months ahead of the targeted transition date. If historical performance data must be imported, we will begin running parallel performance reporting for up to three months, so that we have plenty of time to reconcile any discrepancies.

We also plan for client transitions. For clients transitioning to our investment models, we establish a plan ahead of the transition date. We can bring on your current investment models and transition your clients slowly over time toward our models, so that the change gradually takes place and any taxes are spread out over a period of years.

We can transfer clients in less than a month. By preparing in advance, we can have most clients fully on board within two weeks of the targeted transition date. Even with a few stragglers, the impact on revenues should be negligible.

Our BackOffice group is there to provide support after the transition. We have found that the immediately following the actual transition is when things become real. We dedicate significant time with our partners and BackOffice group during the subsequent weeks to bring you and your team up to full speed with training on technology and process.
