Why Colorado Wealth Group?

Partners, Steven Harp and Jacob Ray, created Colorado Wealth Group as a home for like-minded professionals to provide a premier destination for their clients. Both Steven and Jacob came from large financial organizations. Along the journey to independence, many lessons were learned, leading to growth and development.  These lessons have and continue to present great coaching opportunities to new advisors joining CWG. 

The intense drive to bring CWG to full independence came from much frustration that is caused by a large Broker/Dealer: expensive investment models, high compliance costs, weak technology, and a lack of agility for marketing, communication, and fast execution of strategies for our clients. We set our vision on building Colorado Wealth Group as the premier destination for independent advisors to build their book of business in a true plug-and-play format, while loyally serving our clients to give them a world-class experience in wealth management.
