The FP Alpha Story

As the President of Altfest Personal Wealth Management, a $1.6bn RIA, I experienced firsthand how time-consuming it can be for financial advisors to offer truly holistic financial planning. In addition to the depth of experience necessary to advise on all the situations experienced by high-net worth clients, advisors also have to spend the time to craft their recommendations into an easily digestible format to review with their clients.

Along with my partner, Luis Quiroz, we created FP Alpha to give financial advisors the scale and depth of knowledge necessary to enhance their planning practices by providing key offering such as tax, estate and insurance to their entire client base, usually just reserved for your top tier clients. 

Using artificial intelligence, FP Alpha reads important financial documents to surface recommendations from real experts. In minutes, you can scale up your financial advice and be confident that the planning insights you deliver back to clients were composed by humans, not computers. 

The end result is the perfect combination of advisor intelligence and artificial intelligence.
