Compass Consulting

We’ve had the pleasure of helping hundreds of financial institutions, and hope to earn your trust and support to grow your wealth management and financial planning solutions. Our consulting expertise focuses on the relationships and accountabilities between financial advisors and the other more traditional lines of business. Unlike other consulting companies that offer a wide range of services from fin-tech, branding, insurance, payroll, etc., we address advisors’ and financial institutions’ top platform concerns and provide you with the keys to wealth advisory growth.
