WealthSource started with a simple premise:

To give clients access to unbiased financial advice.

It all began in 2009. In the midst of a major financial crisis, Bryan Sullivan walked away from his career at UBS to start Vellum Financial in San Luis Obispo, CA. That same year, Eric Patton and Jon Dubravac founded Avant-Garde Advisors in Centennial, CO.

Although the founders were separated by a thousand miles, they shared the same desire to put clients first. Their firms approached that goal from different angles. Vellum focused on building a team of “best-in-class” subject matter experts. Avant-Garde assembled a state-of-the-art technology stack to deliver exceptional client service — and to provide back office support to other advisors with a similar client-first philosophy.

As both firms grew, the founders stayed in touch to share their wins and challenges. Over time, they realized that they were better together. The new combined firm, WealthSource, was built on a solid foundation of Vellum’s investment and financial planning expertise, Avant-Garde’s state-of-the-art technology, and a joint commitment to do the best for every single client.
