Work Environment

We believe that a true platform to optimize professional success should provide depth of advice in estate and financial planning, internal and external asset management, equity and personal risk management, wealth succession, philanthropy, and legacy management.  We invest heavily in each of these areas to attract and retain the greatest talent and clients possible. 

Over 50 professionals serve our clients in over 40 states from our four office locations in Florida (Headquarters), North Carolina, and Louisiana with additional presence in Sarasota, Florida; Jacksonville, Florida; Omaha, Nebraska; and Nashville, Tennessee.  

Our financial professionals are comprised of CFP®, CFA®, CPA, CLU®, CRCP®, AEP®, CRPC®, & JD designations. 


Firm Growth

We have an open-door policy, because we know that the best business ideas & results come from listening to our advisors and providing them with the tools they need to best guide their clients.  

We have an entrepreneurial mindset that values input and suggestions from the team.  Nearly every part of this firm was built as a suggestion from one of the team members and is reflected in our growth.

To work with referred investors or handle transactions in their accounts, individuals must undergo a background review and receive approval from Schwab. Some requirements apply; 7 years of experience actively managing security portfolios or a registered investment advisor for the most recent 18 months and for the 5.5 years immediately prior as either: a securities portfolio manager, financial planner, CPA, or registered representative of a full-service broker-dealer or bank trust officer.

What Our Advisors Are Saying

“Prior to CWA I was a solo practitioner with a single partner and no employees. Everything fell on us – compliance, trading, administrative paperwork, and everything in between. The resources and organizational structure at CWA allowed me to focus on my job, business development. My book has grown exponentially from this support and has allowed me to become more efficient and effective in utilizing my skill set.“

"The entire fabric of this enterprise is about having the expertise and flexibility to serve our clients in a truly unique way with industry-leading performance and research. I have never been a part of an enterprise that offers so many solutions to the advisor and so much support. This is a firm that is growing in every sense of the word. This has been the best choice of my career."
