Our process

Our Story

Dan Archer, Brennan Cross, and Ray Tanner (ACT) forged their working relationship in the early 2000’s and subsequently started ACT Wealth Management, LLC in 2010. We have worked closely with affluent clients on a nationwide basis to deliver complex financial planning and wealth management strategies. Our team has been responsible for leading the development of processes and growth at several investment advisory firms, each surpassing one billion dollars in assets under management during our tenure. We started ACT Wealth Management, LLC due in large part to the conflicts we have seen in the investment advisory business and our determination to always place the needs of our clients first.

Our Process


Our compensation comes only from the advice we provide to our clients. ACT Wealth Management does not receive commissions or 12b-1 fees, does not sell products, and provides full fee transparency. Additionally, we safeguard assets using a third-party custodian.

Our Philosophy

The Foundation

Developing a personal relationship with each of our clients is the foundation of our financial planning and investment management services.


We believe that investment transparency and full fee disclosure are important components of each client relationship.


We meet face-to-face with clients, and prospective clients, throughout the country to solidify and develop lasting relationships.

In Person Meeting

The process we utilize when meeting with prospective clients has been crucial to the firm's success, organic growth, and client retention. Therefore, we prefer to meet individually with each of our clients, in their home, at their convenience.

Third Party Service

Your assets are held through a third-party custodian, who supplies you with important infrastructure services such as trade confirmations, monthly/quarterly account statements, and annual tax reporting.

Why Choose Us

Investment & Research

One size never fits all. A client’s financial investment portfolio is no different. That’s why ACT Wealth Management lays the groundwork of each of our client’s situations uniquely, with categorical transparency, tactical assessment management, and strategic, tailored, and unbiased investment research.

Investment Committee

ACT Wealth Management is not a company driven by specious market trends. Before recommendations are given, quantitative and technical analyses are considered. ACT's principals are responsible for amending the company’s global asset allocation model, which informs our clients' risk profiles.

Fiduciary Standard

The Latin word fiduciary means "trust." Fiduciary is someone who acts in utmost good faith in a client's best interest. ACT Wealth Management follows this fiduciary standard to provide the trust investors deserve.

Coordination of Services

Investment logistics don’t have a single endpoint. Thus, the investment constellation is dotted with accountants, attorneys, and other business professionals. As your financial advisor, our duty is to act in your best interest in all matters. ACT serves as your “point person” in coordinating these services.
