Chad J. Wilson, CFA, CFP®| Director of Retirement Plan Consulting

Chad Wilson, CFA, CFP® is a Managing Director and Co-Founder of Fiduciary Plan Advisors at Hightower. Beyond managing the operations of FPA, Chad oversees the firm’s process of selecting and monitoring investment managers, performing manager due diligence and formulating the firm’s investment strategies. His duties also extend to provider fee negotiation, client acquisition and retention, and the due diligence surrounding selecting non-fiduciary service providers such as a plan’s recordkeeper, administrator, actuary, and custodian/trustee.  

Prior to co-founding Fiduciary Plan Advisors, Chad was the Director of Investment Consulting at a regional consulting firm overseeing $2.7 billion of qualified and non-qualified plan assets. Unlike most investment-oriented consultants who begin their careers as wealth managers, Chad began working for a local TPA/Recordkeeper out of college. That experience strengthened his understanding of ERISA compliance and gives him a unique view of structuring investment programs for retirement plans. 

Chad graduated magna cum laude from Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania with a focus in business finance and English, is a CFA charter holder as well as a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioner. He was honorably discharged from the United States Marine Corps after serving four years in the infantry and as a scout sniper. Chad currently lives in Crownsville, MD with his wife, Jill, of 19 years and two daughters, Dorothea (8yrs) and Sylvia (5yrs).
