Fee-Only, Fiduciary, Real Guidance Toward Financial Peace


Schwallier Wealth Management LLC has been helping to
improve clients' long-term financial success and change lives
for over 10 years. We offer guidance in the form of financial
planning, on-going investment advice and management, and
insight on all things affecting life and finances. Our goal is
that clients are better off for having met us, specifically,
and we want to become an indispensable resource in helping
clients attain financial peace.

After tiring of being a captive advisor to a broker-dealer and
managing the inherent conflicts that serving two masters
(employer and client) creates, Adam Schwallier formed this
Registered Investment Advisory (RIA) firm.

Schwallier Wealth Management (SWM) was borne to serve clients
directly without the trappings of a broker-dealer.
As a fiduciary, SWM is required to always work in clients'
best interests and fully disclose any conflicts of interest.

As a fee-only firm, we work directly for clients and never
accept any commission revenue that may create a conflict of

Using this approach, the firm has grown well from a single
advisor office to a multiple advisor team with a robust staff.

This is the space where a broker-affiliated advisor must disclose the broker-dealer relationship that they do some commission business through. Since we are fee-only, work directly for clients, and forego commissions, no disclaimer is needed.

Adam Schwallier



With more than 20 years of experience in the financial services industry, I have been helping to improve clients' long-term financial success and change lives for over 10 years as a fee-only advisor and planner at Schwallier Wealth Management. I offer guidance in the form of financial planning, on-going investment advice and management, and insight on all things affecting life and finances. My goal is that clients are better off for having chosen me, specifically, and I strive to become an indispensable resource in helping clients attain financial peace.

After working as an advisor at Morgan Stanley and AG Edwards and becoming disenchanted with the standard of care to clients and advisors at large wirehouse firms, I struck out on my own for clients and became a fee-only advisor foregoing any commission-based business and working for my clients directly without the conflict of interest of working for a captive brokerage firm. I am constantly reading, learning, and improving my skill-set for clients. This includes proudly becoming a member of NAPFA as a fee-only CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER? professional.

I reside in Tallmadge Township with my wife, Val, and my three children. I enjoy spending time and playing cards and board games with my large extended family, playing basketball as long as my body allows, and practicing yoga.
