The Future of Wealth Management Starts Here. 

These days most folks wouldn’t dream of using a paper map to get from point A to point B. Or using a set of encyclopedias as a primary source of research.

And yet, when it comes to investment management and financial planning, many financial advisory firms are using methodologies that are 40 to 50 or even 60 years old.

Leap Wealth Management is different.

Founded on the principles of trust and integrity, Leap Wealth Management combines exceptional service and customized investment strategies to  help you Advance and Preserve your wealth.

Modern Solutions for a Competitive Advantage

We're Different

We're in the business of investing intelligently.

No matter where you are on your financial journey, you and your family deserve the opportunity to accumulate capital and build a legacy. Our team provides private investors like you the sophisticated services normally reserved for large institutions or the ultra-high-net worth. 

We believe in buying, holding, and selling.  Timing the market can be difficult, selling investments at the right time can help you escape the enormous losses that accompany bear markets.   We can work with you to determine when to sell investments.

Recognizing what moves markets is much different than just capturing gains and limiting losses. The goal of our process is to help you invest in the right type of investment, at the right time, for the right amount of time. 

The best of both worlds.  We construct and manage our client portfolios using both fundamental and technical analysis while leveraging cost efficient investments - primarily individual stocks and exchange traded funds*.

Our Core Beliefs:

Planning your financial future can be extremely complicated. We believe you deserve access to competent advice and services.

We believe that our interests should be aligned with yours.  We achieve success when you achieve success.

We believe investors should embrace the revolutionary advances made in technology but still have the care and service of a trusted adviser.

We believe investors should have confidence in their investment strategy regardless of which direction the market is trending: up, down, or sideways.

Senior Advisor/Director of Institutional Services

Mike has been in the financial services industry since 1994 when he started his first financial planning practice in Dallas, Texas where he first met and worked with Chris Leap. During his first year as an advisor he excelled and become a training manager for other advisors. While building a successful practice he also became a top recruiter, helped open a new office as district manager, and continued to train scores of financial advisors.

In 2000 he took on an even larger role in a corporate environment as national sales manager and regional director. During this time Mike led a team to develop successful financial education programs used by financial advisors across the county. Mike was also instrumental in developing and implementing a wide array of financial education and financial planning programs for executives and key employees. Mike was a sought after speaker and traveled across the country providing training to thousands of advisors, field leaders, and met with many Fortune 100 companies regarding their financial education programs. These programs are still in use by thousands of companies across the nation.

As director of institutional programs, he had hands-on involvement with helping his previous firm attain the honor of becoming one of Top 10 fastest-growing institutional asset managers in the country for three years running. During this time, he also continued to work with individual clients developing and managing their wealth via custom investment strategies tailored to their needs.

Mike rejoined Chris at Leap Wealth Management and continues to help clients manage their wealth with custom portfolio management techniques tailored to their individual needs. Mike obtained his RICP® designation in order to better advise clients on the transition from accumulating assets for retirement to sustainable lifetime retirement income, and the AIF® designation in order to further the principles of fiduciary duty, the standards of conduct for acting as a fiduciary, and a process for carrying out fiduciary responsibility.

For All of Your Wealth Management Needs

Portfolio Management

Our Portfolio Management strategies are designed to help you balance the ongoing pursuit of growth while helping you preserve your irreplaceable capital.  Through our disciplined process, we believe we can add value in excess of a "buy and hold" approach.  Learn more today.

Comprehensive Financial Planning

Where do you see yourself in 5, 10 or 20 years? Your answer to that is almost as unique as your fingerprint. From planning a secure retirement to purchasing a dream property or sending your kids off to college, your financial road map deserves a dedicated guide. Call us today to find out how we can help.

Individual 401(k) Management

Shouldn't your 401(k) get the same attention as your other investments?  Of course it should!  We work with almost all retirement plan custodians so it doesn't matter where your plan resides. Our Individual 401(k) Investment Management services include building a customized portfolio for your 401(k) and then actively managing the investments inside this plan on a weekly basis.  Learn more today.

Protection Planning

Change is an inevitable part of life. But by implementing a sound insurance strategy that identifies potential risks and puts a measure of protection in place, we can help mitigate some of the financial risk.  Let us help you identify missed opportunities in life, disability, and long-term care insurance today.

Retirement Plan Design

At Leap Wealth Management we strive to relieve some of the burden of retirement plan administration and management by providing guidance and fiduciary governance solutions. We're not in the business of pushing products. Rather, we create client-centered partnerships through our fiduciary status that empowers us to act solely and exclusively for the plan and its beneficiaries. This solidifies our ability to serve as an objective ERISA fiduciary. Contact us for more info.

Legacy Planning

Our legacy planning follows a two-fold approach.  First, we will help you organize and identify the assets in your estate. Second, we will work with your existing legal team to formalize and implement any proposed solutions.   Ultimately, we want to help you create a plan that ensures your wishes are carried out.  Reach out today to learn more.

We provide multiple ways to stay informed of the ever-changing financial landscape.
