Blair Thompson is an award-winning, certified wealth strategist who has seen all facets of the finance industry. He has amassed almost two decades of experience in wealth management, including roles such as SVP and National Planning leader in private banking, strategic advisor to USSOCOM, private capital advisor with the U.S. Navy, and a tenure with the DoD Innovation Council. It was during his time in the private bank space, serving solely ultra-high-net-worth clients, that set Blair on a mission to level the playing field. In 2019, he founded Sparta Wealth Partners, determined to bring the family office model to individual investors with average net worths less than $100 million. He’s delivering with a boutique model that defies the impersonal quagmire of industry behemoths, providing personalized strategies focused on a single goal—to serve the best interests of each and every client.
Sparta Wealth Partners is a unique advisory firm that brings sophisticated investment management, strategies, advanced products, and proprietary resources typically reserved for only the uber-wealthy to successful entrepreneurs, business owners, and families. “I saw a huge gap in the expertise and resources available to ultra-high-net-worth individuals and what Main Street investors had access to. I wanted to create a solution-driven, family office model for the many deserving, successful people who really need it,” Blair explains.
With a special affinity for small- to medium-sized business owners, Sparta Wealth Partners offers a truly holistic, personalized approach and unique access to an array of resources ranging from advanced investment funds to sophisticated hedging strategies, retirement planning to liquidity management. And should a client’s goals or situation change, Blair and his team work with them to modify the strategy to suit their needs—and dreams. “Many large banks and institutions are serving thousands of people simultaneously, using the same model, regardless of the client’s size or unique profile. Without this customization, they’re missing out on tremendous opportunities to help their investors flourish,” Blair says. “We focus on agile strategies and a customized approach, and adapt quickly so that we can help our clients thrive.”
Blair has been recognized as a Top 100 Advisor in the USA and an RIA Advisor to Watch Under $1 Billion. He’s also a Million Dollar Round Table Qualifier, Wealth Advisor of the Year winner, perennial Leader’s and Chairman’s Club qualifier, and a vetted member of the US DoD Trusted Capital.
