About Alpha Wealth Group

Alpha Wealth Group is a financial firm designed to provide complimentary advisory services. Unlike most financial firms, Alpha Wealth Group prides itself on the belief that they are obligated to help their clients not only create a sold investment plan, but a solid overall plan. Our clients are confident that they have a complete estate and legacy plan in place while minimizing taxes today and for their beneficiaries. Our clients have taken the proper steps to protect their asset against unforeseen events, and we are proud to help each of them achieve a successful financial future.

Our Services

At Alpha Wealth Group, we specialize in the following services:

Retirement Planning

The world of retirement planning is on the precipice of a new reality. The era of retirees being rewarded with a gold watch and lifetime pension after 35 years of work with a company has virtually disappeared. Alpha Wealth Group identifies and addresses potential risks and pitfalls while providing a straightforward approach to help you achieve your income and retirement goals.

Tax Planning

Everyone prepares taxes, yet very few people have created a true tax plan. We can work with your tax counsel to provide a detailed tax plan designed to minimize taxes now, in the future, and as part of your succession plan.

Estate Planning

Without proper estate planning, you and your loved ones could experience devastating outcomes. We believe that everyone should possess an estate plan to avoid these kinds of pitfalls. As we develop your multi-generational estate plan, we will first identify your goals and then work with a legal counsel to implement the proper framework.

Asset Protection

Vulnerability with your finances should not be an option. It is critical to develop and implement an integrated asset protection strategy. With your authorization, we will work with tax, legal and investment professionals to reduce your possibility of losing assets to unwanted beneficiaries.


The Alpha Wealth Hour can be heard every Saturday from 9am to 10am on 560 AM WIND.

Our goal is to add “Alpha” to you and your family. “Alpha” is a financial term that, when achieved, results in a positive variance.  We help our listeners achieve Alpha in many aspects of their overall plan by covering a broad range of topics like market updates and investment strategies, forward tax planning and estate and asset protection planning. We also invite industry experts on our show, such as prominent attorneys, tax advisors, and business owners, to provide their unique insight and ideas on adding “Alpha.”
