Interview with Ralph Adamo, CEO & Founder at Integrity Wealth Management

Ralph Adamo began his career in the financial services industry in 1985, quickly recognizing that clients require broader services and a personalized plan to address their concerns and needs in today’s complex world. His clients soon realized that he had an inherent ability to go beyond the surface and understand the deeper emotional elements underlying financial issues and those clients referred their friends, family and colleagues to him. His portfolio of business grew steadily.

From career inception and over the years Ralph prepared himself to address the increasingly complex array of financial services that comprise a truly comprehensive and far-reaching multi-generational wealth management program by acquiring the well respected ChFC, CLU credentials along with a Masters of Science in Financial Services (MSFS) from The American College. He is an investment advisor representative (IAR).

Driven by a singular focus on helping clients achieve their lifelong financial goals, Ralph has established successful long-term relationships with clients in many fields of endeavor nationwide. He strives to be a highly effective specialist on his own, but often serves as a catalyst to bring top level integration of a client’s overall wealth plan by working collaboratively with the client’s team of professionals, seeking to achieve results that exceed expectations. He is passionate about gaining knowledge and applying it wisely. Ralph founded Orange County’s Chapter of Advisors in Philanthropy and was President 2012-2014, and also served as a Board Member of The International Association of Advisors in Philanthropy from 2011-2014. Ralph is the author of the book “Integrity @ Work: Using the Integrity Process To Find Your Financial True North

In 2003 Ralph Adamo formed Integrity Wealth Management and began developing what became the proprietary WealthTrac™ FORMula.
