Thousands of people visit wealthtender.com each month to discover and connect with financial advisors ready to help them enjoy life more with less money stress. To make this service free to you, Wealthtender earns money from advisors who pay to be featured. This creates a natural conflict of interest when we favor their promotion over others. Wealthtender is not a client of these advisors. Learn how we operate with integrity to earn your trust.
