How We're Unique

A Powerful Strategic Partner for Your Practice

Farpointe was formed to collaborate with a select group of advisors to provide tailored support so you can scale and optimize your practice according to your individual goals. We are not an “aggregator” or “consolidator” looking to scale our own business at the expense of yours. We are judicious in assessing who will benefit from our value proposition and add to the collective strength of our community.

The Farpointe promise is to make a materially positive impact on our advisors’ businesses and lives. We have an advisor representative on our Board of Directors to give our advisors a direct and meaningful voice in the firm’s strategic direction. And we deliberately align our compensation with yours so that we only grow when you grow, we only win when you win, and we only succeed when you succeed.

As a member of the Farpointe Family, you benefit from the products, services, and knowledge offered through Cetera Financial Group. Cetera delivers personalized independent guidance, backed by a strong community that helps you and your clients thrive. 

Founded in 1983, Cetera Financial Group was built on the belief that financial professionals could reach greater success by joining high-performing, regionally focused teams. The result is a higher level of support for you, the client. 

In that spirit of collaboration, Farpointe offers access to the following:

  • A wide range of investment solutions supporting financial strategy that fits your specific needs
  • Collaborative technology that keeps you informed and educated
  • Support from knowledgeable subject-matter specialists that help guide your investment strategies
  • Regulatory oversight to monitor your clients' investments and their results

The Farpointe Team

Farpointe’s partners have over 100 years of combined experience developing and executing strategic growth plans focused on empowering CPAs and tax professionals to offer integrated tax and wealth management planning solutions. We formed Farpointe to bring our expansive and diverse expertise to an elite group of like-minded advisors who want to be part of collaborative and supportive community.
