Advisor Network

An open-architecture, highly consultative hybrid platform for advisors to stay ahead of the curve.

The SWP Advisor Network delivers business level solutions to investment advisors within an enterprise level framework focused on flexibility, customization, and control.   Our advisory platform is tailored to meet the unique business needs of our affiliates.

We are a ‘change agent’, seeking advisors in search of a platform that will transform their daily professional lives. The traditional menu of ‘tuck-in-a-box’ core advisory services is insufficient.  Our advisors stay ahead of the curve through an end-to-end, customizable wealth management system, highlighted by a fully integrated best-of-breed technology suite.

The SWP Advisor Network supports investment advisors who wish to dual register and continue a broker/dealer relationship.
