What sets yours apart from other firms?

Unlike big-name firms, we consider ourselves the mom and pop of financial advisory services. We offer a very personal feel, with a convenient one-stop-shop aspect, and we are able to offer our clients more than just financial services. It is our fiduciary responsibility and priority to put our clients first.

What makes your customer service outstanding?

Our consistency and loyalty to our clients keep them equally loyal to us. We want to make sure we are putting their goals and needs first in everything we plan for them. This allows us to better serve them in the future, as well as their heirs or legacy they are leaving behind. Our clients are not only friends, but part of our family.

What’s your investment philosophy?

We provide our clients financial solutions by managing their investments, utilizing a proprietary “Wright Investment Strategy.” This is done by implementing a scientific three-axis control system which actively manages risk exposure, investment strategy and investment performance. Founded on the principal of fiduciary responsibility, we provide tailored investment solutions based on your unique objectives. Our mission is to help families grow and preserve their wealth so a legacy is left behind.

Do you give back to your community?

Absolutely! I created a foundation within our company about three years ago called APWM Invests. We invest in our community by raising money and awareness for a different charity each year that we and our clients are passionate about. We have given back to Project Zero, a nonprofit adoption organization to assist foster children find their forever homes.
