Barry Glassman, CFP®

His vision for starting GWS was to deliver investment strategies and wealth management services typically available at the highest levels of wealth. Today, clients benefit from these sophisticated financial services targeted to meet their unique needs.

Glassman Wealth Services moved to the #6 spot from #38 on Investment News’ Top 50 Fee-Only Emerging Firms list. From the end of the first quarter last year to this year, GWS has increased assets under management by over 31%.

“As a fee-only firm, we are fiduciaries which means that we put our clients’ interests first,” said Barry Glassman, CFP, President of Glassman Wealth Services. “As we work with our clients to select investments and manage their portfolios, this fiduciary relationship sets us apart.” “We believe that our growth is fueled not only by our services and expertise, but by our dedication to the best interests of our clients.”
