  • We were selective and thoughtful in establishing a quality alliance with United Advisors and our law firm. It is no surprise that our clients have consistently thanked us for the introduction. United Advisors is an extremely competent, professional, and service-driven wealth management firm that offers the complementary financial services that our clients need in order to navigate their complex financial lives.

    Anthony Vespa

  • After thirty years in the financial services industry, I was looking to partner with a firm that would give me the confidence that my clients were well taken care of while giving me the opportunity to enjoy life outside of work. I feel very fortunate to have found in United Advisors a group of individuals who are caring, personable and competent at managing client relationships. Throughout the past year, I have been able to monetize my life's accomplishments and stay involved at a level of my choosing.

    Susan Wyckoff

  • United Advisors provided my 20 year old financial advisory practice with a succession plan that has ultimately allowed me and my family to have a positive, secure retirement and most importantly has taken care of all of my clients and their financial needs. After having been my clients trusted advisor for so many years it gives me the peace of mind to know that my clients are in great hands with the excellent professionals and support staff at United Advisors.

    Vernon Current

  • Working with United Advisors has enabled us to service our individual and business accounting clients better and offer them individual financial services. From the beginning of the strategic alliance and prior to any client communication, United Advisors and my firm each had clearly defined responsibilities, outlined in a Letter of Understanding "LOU". UA delivered on their investment philosophy and process, minimum and ideal revenue goals for the first year. The document outlined a communication/positioning strategy for potential clients/opportunities, and finally defined how the revenue and expenses would be shared. Bottom line, there were no surprises and my clients have been serviced better than I could have ever imagined.
