Independent Private Wealth Management

Holistic Wealth Planning, Investment and Protection

Independent wealth management puts clients first in a way that large corporate institutions just can’t. Independent advisors are motivated because they’re not tied to selling bundled investments or meeting sales quotas. Instead, they can focus on delivering financial advice to clients and managing their assets on world-class platforms.

Our independence allows us to be objective and impartial. Wellington-Altus is ideal for independent advisors and clients who don’t want the constraints of large corporate systems and requirements.


Clients come first—not sales quotas, not quarterly targets, not profitability minimums. Each client is unique, and so are the solutions they receive. Our advisors are free to do what’s right for every client, every time.


With an entrepreneurial culture, we’re better at business because we’re a firm built by advisors, for advisors. Our agile approach to technology means we always have the best platforms and solutions for our clients and advisors.
