Alpha Financial Advisors, LLC. is a very rare independent fee-only investment management firm that represents the interests of high net worth individuals and provides ongoing holistic financial advice based on a client's unique risk tolerance and financial goals.

Our financial firm differs from the traditional stock brokerage firm in that your advisor is legally bound to provide objective, expert financial advice and charges a fee rather than representing a firm's interest and being compensated for a sale or transaction. Therefore, we do not receive any commissions from transactions, nor is there any compensation derived from the use of any recommended investment product, brokerage or mutual fund. The client and advisor's interests are aligned to build the client's wealth. Alpha uses the latest technological advances in portfolio research, management and reporting of investment results.
