Welcome to SWS Partners

SWS Partners is a registered investment advisor that focuses on using technology to deliver contemporary asset management and financial planning solutions to high net worth individuals, family offices, endowments, foundations, and other institutions.

We believe that by emphasizing the application of modern technologies, we can create broad efficiencies and deliver better outcomes to clients.

 

Technology

The changing relationship between algorithms, automation, and investing cannot be dismissed, especially for sophisticated investors.

We recognize and embrace those aspects of investment management that are commodities and can, therefore, be automated, such as asset allocation, tax loss harvesting, and portfolio rebalancing.  By aligning automation with our keen understanding of those aspects of our business that necessitate human relationships, empathy, and judgment, we prioritize our time for addressing our clients’ most complex questions.

Colin Bishop

Financial Planner

Colin knows that Financial Planning should be the foundation to every financial decision. He is of the belief that as a financial planning professional he should be a guide for our client’s futures and never a salesperson for any given product.

A financial plan is very unique to every client. The plan shoulders the responsibility of having a strong baseline from which to make fiscal investments. Colin works with our client’s to piece together their complete financial picture as it is today and compare it to their future financial goals. Once he has assessed a client’s current situation, he is then able to make recommendations on what actions to take and how their investments should be allocated.

He has lived in central Ohio for the majority of his life, graduating from The Ohio State University with a bachelor’s degree in Family Financial Planning. In his free time, Colin plays soccer and cheers for all Columbus sports teams.
