About Disciplined Advisor Group

We’re here to help you achieve your financial goals, manage your money and ultimately, better your life. Unlike many other investment firms that use a cookie-cutter financial plan for all their investors, we apply our Purpose-Based Asset Management approach. By creating separate compartments for each investor's multiple purposes, we create a structure that allows for a prudent, less emotional investment decision-making process. We believe that markets are efficient and investment returns are determined by asset allocation and the passage of time, not by manager selection or market timing. We are focused on your security and work tirelessly toward one goal: help you achieve financial peace of mind. As a boutique money management firm, we offer you a service that is personal, private and exclusive. We know you can go many places for financial advice, but the clients of Disciplined Advisors Group benefit from the more than six decades of investment experience in which we are backed. As an independent advisory group, our advice is not influenced by a corporate parent and we are free to choose the right solutions for you. At Disciplined Advisors Group – trust, commitment and caring make up the foundation that provides services to our clients.

Who Am I? You probably have people helping you with your investments, legal matters, and taxes....but who makes sure you are getting all the benefits you're owed? I do. My name is Wade Smith. I scour Federal, State, local and corporate data bases to find benefits you are owed...but NOT receiving. It's what I do. I got into this business to fill a void I noticed after the passing of my grandparents years ago. Seeing the issues my parents had to deal with then left me feeling that there were lots of financial salespeople but not many true advisors making sure people were getting all the available benefits that they had worked hard for. I use the skills I gained from my Bachelor's and Master's degrees from Texas A&M and the Mays School of Business to help people get all the benefits that they are owed. I live on the outskirts of Bryan with my wife Lynn and our twin daughters Alex and Reagan. We are actively involved in our church, support local charities and want to live in a world where people feel secure¦ get the lifestyle they deserve and are able to wake up every day worry-free.

About SMITH & Wyatt

You're looking for answers... clear and simple answers WITHOUT someone trying to sell you something. Is that too much to ask? Nope, it's actually a smart way to approach anything as important as your hard-earned money. If that's you, then that's me.

A strong planning process is the best way to create a more financially secure plan. It is crucial to create a financial plan that seeks to protect your needs now, and that plans for the future, in a tax efficient manner. It is our goal to assist you to build a solid financial structure that will stand the test of time and that will grow and build wealth for you and your family. We have established a process to do this that is based on two key aspects of financial security: asset protection and wealth creation. A plan must help ensure financial security throughout your life, for you and for your loved ones. It must provide income replacement and asset protection in the event that the unthinkable were to happen: disability, critical illness or death. The plan must also aim to build the maximum it can via a solid, tax efficient wealth portfolio. With these goals in mind, we will work together to assess your total financial planning needs. We will consider important milestones such as major purchases, marriage, children, education, dreams and retirement. This plan will entail regular review of ongoing financial management strategies. This goal-based financial security planning approach is designed to help you: Define customized short and long-term goals that ensure you choose only the right financial products and services Identify roadblocks or gaps that might impact your financial planning strategy Continually monitor your plan to ensure it meets your changing needs
