Rockwood Wealth Management is an established financial advisory firm serving clientele from our main office in New Hope, PA. We are in the family wealth management business focusing on high net worth clients, families, and business owners. Through a planning process built on integrity, expertise, and attention to every last detail, we navigate our clients through every phase of comprehensive financial planning and discretionary investment management. We have been serving this area and regional niche for more than 10 years and have a constantly evolving succession plan in place to ensure that we’ll be here 40+ years from now.
This is a unique opportunity unlike most in the financial services industry. First, our firm is completely independent…there is no broker dealer affiliation. Therefore, as fiduciaries our loyalty belongs exclusively to our clients. Second, we offer a competitive compensation structure (salary and bonus) and an equity ownership track for employees who demonstrate hard work and leadership characteristics while supporting the long-term goals of our firm. You will be a member of a collaborative and supportive team of high-performing colleagues all working hard to help us grow a successful and multigenerational business. At Rockwood, you won’t be stuck building your own book…all clients are clients of the entire firm; this is not an eat-what-you-kill position…we’re not that kind of firm.
We don’t trade much, we aren’t a product-centric firm and we don’t have a sales culture. We focus equally on our clients’ comprehensive financial planning deliverables and investment management. The right candidate is going to be equally comfortable generating an ultra-detailed financial plan and engineering and allocating a household portfolio across multiple accounts of different tax types…and then expertly communicating both to the client in a way the client enjoys the process.
If you are an aspiring or experienced financial planner with 0-5 years of experience, we encourage you to contact us to determine if you might be the right fit for our firm. We offer the opportunity to learn from and be mentored by six senior advisors and four associate advisors, to learn the business from the ground up, and enjoy freedom to help shape the future of a boutique firm.
