About Nick Lalonde

Nick found his passion for wealth management at a young age, growing up, his household looked like quite the Brady Bunch...joy and peace permeated throughout the home and, as one of six children, he was always amazed at his parent's ability to provide in abundance. His fondest childhood memories came from the times spent around the dinner table laughing and sharing stories of their day. But that once happy and harmonious life was plagued by the unexpected...his stepfather suffered from health issues that would keep him out of work for nearly a year. This issue, coupled with economic difficulties in the family business, forced his mother to increase her hours at work to keep the family afloat. Despite her efforts, the household of eight couldn't survive on one income and as a result, the picturesque family was no more. His parents would make the difficult decision to divorce.

Like Nick's family, many Americans find themselves navigating unexpected challenges and hardships without a plan. Nick believes that every family deserves financial peace. Nick believes every family deserves to have financial peace.

Nick founded Third Act Wealth Management in 2023 after working with two of the largest firms in the country. He firmly believes that the path to getting what you want in life lies in helping others get what they want. He consistently finished in the top 1% for growth with his prior firm (2018-2022) as a byproduct of serving his clients well.

About Third Act Wealth Management, LLC

Third Act Wealth Management was founded by Nick Lalonde in Dallas, TX, in 2023.

While working for more than a decade with business owners and their families, Nick noticed the financial services market was not meeting some of his clients real needs. People have many assets beyond financial success life satisfaction, personal growth, education, business acumen, and so much more.

We believe retirement should be the pinnacle of enjoyment, ongoing growth, and success. Our proprietary approach considers our clients many assets to plot their best path forward.

Financial Services

401K Rollovers

When it comes to rolling over your 401(k) there are four decisions you need to consider.

We help our clients walk through the pro's and con's of each so you are empowered to make the best decision for you and your family.


There can be a time and place for annuities but we tend not to recommend annuities to clients. We do analyze, review and recommend appropriate investments with clients who currently have annuities. Key items to consider, rating of company, annuitization options, titling, beneficiaries, costs, surrender charges, floor guarantees and cost basis among other items.

Investment Advice & Management

Management of all investment elements to maximize the probability of clients achieving all that is important to them.

1.) Portfolio performance analysis
2.) Risk evaluation
3.) Asset allocation
4.) Assessment of impact of costs
5.) Assessment of impact of taxes

Wealth Management

We offer comprehensive wealth management to high achievers.

Our definition of Wealth Management:

WM = IC + AP + RM

1.) Investment Consulting

2.) Advanced Planning
a. Wealth Enhancement (Tax Mitigation and Cash Flow Planning)
b. Wealth Transfer
c. Wealth Protection
d. Charitable Giving

3.) Relationship Management
a. Client Relationship Management
b. Professional Network Management

Retirement Planning

We help our clients transition into their Third Act of Life (typically known as retirement). We believe these years are set up to uniquely be your best because of additional time, resources, and modern day medicine.

Regardless of how much someone has saved one of the common fears many American's have is...do I have enough? Will my nest egg last me the rest of my life?

We will help you clearly define the answer to these questions.

Insurance Planning

When it comes to owning insurance you should think through the framework of: What risk do I want to keep and what risk do I want to transfer? We will help you identify what insurance we believe would compliment your financial plan and what risks you should keep.

Estate Planning & Trusts

Wealth Transfer is a big part of any financial plan regardless of the size of your estate. We will work with your estate planning attorney on strategies that compliment your financial plan.

Tax Advice and Services

The largest expense for many of American's is taxes! We will work with your CPA or tax professional to identify and implement Tax Mitigation strategies.

Money Management

It all starts with cash flow. As a business I work with a bookkeeper to understand what money I have coming in and going out. We want to take the same approach for your household. I often find people spend much more than they think. Once we know exactly what your household has coming in and going out we can be very intentional with the decisions we make around your money moving forward.

Risk Management

Risk management is important for any household. You can have an incredible financial plan and it all be for naught if you haven't considered the risks that could devastate your plan.

We will help you identify these risks and ways to mitigate them.


Do you have a customer satisfaction or refund policy?

Yes, we have a complimentary second opinion process where we will help you identify where you are at today, where you want to be, and what gaps may exist. This process does require an incredible amount of our companies' time, energy, and resources but we choose not to charge for it. The reason we do not charge for this service is because while we understand you are interviewing us we are also interviewing you.

When we conclude the second opinion process if we mutually decide we are a good fit we will show you how we can partner with your family. If we are not a good fit we will not bill you for our time.

Why should I choose you as my financial advisor?

Three reasons:

1.) Aside from your spouse we will work to understand you better than anyone in your life. There are seven areas we will focus on: Value, Goals, Relationships, Advisor Relationships, Assets, Processes, and Interests. This combined with our technical expertise allows us to do our very best planning.

2.) After working for two of the largest firms in the country I created a firm where my clients could be the hero. When making decisions on processes, technology, and solutions offered we do it through a critical lens of how is this in our client's best interest?

3.) We've spent tens of thousands of dollars working with top consultants and leading industry research companies to refine our Wealth Management process so that you can clearly articulate why Third Act Wealth Management is different than anyone else you've worked with.
