           Building Relationships That Go Beyond Investment Advice

The WSG Difference PDF Print


The financial crisis that began in 2008 provided investors with significant insight into how conflicts of interest among financial firms, product manufacturers, investment managers and financial advisors could adversely impact their ability to pursue important financial goals. It helped open investors’ eyes to what it really means for an advisor to serve in a fiduciary capacity, which requires placing your needs first and foremost at all times.


As independent investment advisor representatives, we eliminate the constraints and conflicts of interest inherent in most traditional brokerage models:

  • We have no obligations to investment product manufacturers, and
  • No cross-sell quotas or home-office directives that may lead to conflicts of interest
  • We spend our time developing customized strategies for the unique challenges you face
