Designed Wealth Management promotes investor confidence by supporting independent minded advisors and ensuring that advisors are supported to serve their clients’ best interests.
We are founded on the belief that true independence means clients are free to choose platforms, products and investment strategies that are not burdened by the decisions, mandates, or proprietary product shelf of a parent company or majority owner. We are reimagining independence by regularly challenging ourselves to seek feedback, increase transparency, and implement strong governance.
