About Company

Shadow Wealth Management, LLC


In 2017, a decision was made to create a concierge level wealth management firm to serve clients’ needs as a fee based fiduciary, reducing conflicts of interest posed by the structure of many firms. In 2018, Shadow Wealth Management, LLC (SWM) [CRD #297588] was launched.

Domiciled in South Carolina, Shadow Wealth Management, LLC serves clients locally and select clients in markets across America. SWM strives to understand clients’ needs, create wealth management solutions, and adjust to dynamic conditions over time.

SWM manages wealth by layering strategic and tactical decisions.  SWM’s commitment to transparent communication and enhanced client awareness enables clients to focus on their obligations and responsibilities while their wealth management needs are served.

Clients need peace of mind; they need support.  SWM’s wealth management helps clients enjoy their lives.  Client’s prefer to focus on being parents and grandparents, delivering health and learning resources to their communities, saving and protecting lives, supporting institutions of faith, managing and employing people, and building great businesses.

Why “Shadow Wealth” as a company name?  Your real shadow is always with you everywhere you go!  Your shadow is there whether you think about it or not, whether you see it or not.  SWM’s motto “Always With You” expresses that, like your real shadow, “Shadow Wealth Management, LLC” intends to be “with you” through great achievements and difficult challenges, managing your wealth prudently, as you live your life to the fullest!

Charles Schwab & Co., headquartered in San Francisco, is a trusted partner of SWM.  Schwab is the primary custodian of SWM’s clients’ assets.  Through Schwab, SWM’s clients enjoy trade execution and price improvement (when possible), access to detailed research, efficient mobile and online access to their investments, client operational and technology support (including during non-market hours – some restrictions apply), and other advanced features.

Advyzon, a financial technology company based in Chicago, is SWM’s third party performance reporting platform. As trusted professionals, Advyzon generates performance reviews for SWM’s clients using data feeds directly from the custodian, unbiased and reliably.
