Our Mission

Golden State Wealth Management elevates the business of successful financial professionals through supported independence and practice ownership.  We do this in three distinct areas; successful transitions, ongoing professional assistance, and business consulting.

The Golden State Service Model


Golden State Wealth Management equips advisors to succeed in their own business.  Our business model is designed with a suite of resources to educate, train, and empower independent advisors to reach the ideal vision of the future and enjoy long-term success.

We achieve this by focusing on three main areas of service.

A Successful Transition

We realize that a successful conversion of your business is the most important factor in creating a sustainable and successful practice. Golden State Wealth Management takes every step possible to prepare for the day that you begin your transition. From pre-transition coaching, to process management, and on-site repapering, our goal is to support you through this extremely important time.

Ongoing Professional Assistance

Independence does not need to be isolated.  The firm believes in providing resources that allow your practice to run smoothly, without interfering with your unique business style.  This may include connected technology, access to proprietary StarPoint portfolios with Golden State Asset Management, group events, and regulatory guidance specific to your practice.

Business Consulting

Planning for the future ensures success over the long haul, and we’re with you every step of the way.  We help map out a business and lifestyle roadmap, with guidance in growth, acquisition, and succession.  The effort you place in your practice should ultimately increase the value of your business.  Careful decision making and a well-executed plan based on industry accepted standards can help your dream become a reality.

Your Affiliation, Simplified


Our ideal advisor possesses clearly defined goals for their practice that, when combined with the resources and support of GSWM, set them up to achieve great things. We appreciate what makes you a successful advisor: your autonomy. As a result, we don’t limit our advisors with minimums or maximums that will stifle your practice’s vision. In fact, GSWM offers a particularly high level of personalization. We design our affiliation model specific to you, to give you the support you need.
We allow our advisors the freedom to design their service around the principles and practices that work for them, with the added benefits of a Registered Investment Advisor and access to the largest independent broker/dealer in the country*.

And regardless of your needs during your practice’s transition – from compliance oversight to office space – partnering with GSWM brings with it innumerable benefits.
