Internal Resources & Infrastructure

  • In-house Research
  • Financial Planning Team
  • Experienced Insurance Team
  • Estate Planning Professionals
  • Robust Compliance Program
  • Dedicated Trading and Portfolio Management Team

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.
