About Us

We manage complexity, and deliver simplicity.


Our Story is a Work in Progress

Strategic Wealth Partners (“SWP”) is an independently managed wealth management firm that has been partnering with clients since 2008. We created SWP because we saw an opportunity to provide more personalized solutions to clients in an environment that put their interests first. Our work on behalf of our clients is far-reaching, but it all comes down to managing complexity, delivering simplicity, and helping people reach their goals.

Managing Complexity, Delivering Simplicity

Our objective is to provide those we serve with successful wealth strategies, independent advice, and the personalized service they deserve. Our goal is to manage the complexity that comes with wealth and deliver simplicity to the lives of our clients.

Our Standard

What does the fiduciary standard mean for you?

The fiduciary duty is at the core of SWP — the legal and ethical obligation to put your interests ahead of our own. Our fee structure also aligns with your best interests. We are paid directly by our clients and don’t receive commissions or other financial incentives for our work.

As a fiduciary, we offer you confidence in knowing...

  • The advice you receive is objective

  • Your financial advice is separate from the custody of assets, so we can better focus on your needs

  • We provide fee transparency, so you know exactly how much you pay for our services

Giving Back

Social responsibility is central to our work.

As a firm, we are continually considering what “corporate responsibility” means, and we support local organizations that are making a difference.

We encourage our team members to contribute their time and energy to causes they are personally passionate about. To support this work, we provide a matching gift program and give our employees time each year to volunteer at community organizations.
