Benjamin Edwards Wealth Management


To empower our financial advisors with the freedom to address their clients’ needs as they see fit in an atmosphere grounded in trust, integrity, and mutual respect.

Edwards Wealth Management

Edwards Wealth Management (EWM) is our custody-agnostic enterprise RIA that helps independently owned advisory firms run their business more efficiently and serve clients more effectively. We are committed to client-first service and supporting advisors with the comprehensive resources needed to provide the informed and objective financial advice clients deserve.

EWM utilizes our consultative approach to help prospective business owners map their path to independence. We then work hand-in-hand with these advisors to launch their practice, successfully transition clients and then support them with institutional-quality middle and back office services. We also support seasoned independent advisors with these services, which include access to our investment management team, compliance and risk management, and our industry-leading, fully-integrated technology platform, to name a few. Our broker-dealer, Benjamin F. Edwards is also available to these advisors to accommodate clients’ investment needs such as insurance and annuities.
