Broker Check


That’s how we describe Ed Thomas. Ed’s career path began in the manufacturing industry straight out of High School. He hustled working 3rd shift while attending Millersville University. During this time he also married and started a family. In 2002 he earned his Bachelors Degree in Economics with minors in Finance and Business. In 2006, with the support of his wife, Ed made a career change by entering the Financial Services Industry.

Ed was fortunate enough to begin his career with a firm that had a tremendous training program, working hard to earn his series 6, 7, 63 and 66 licenses. Due to the changing environment of the Financial Services Industry and the direction the industry was moving, he felt like his clients needed something more. In 2018, after 12 years working for a Broker/Dealer, Ed decided to form his own Firm. With his vision and the support of family, WatchTower Wealth Management was established.

WatchTower Wealth Management

WatchTower is a Fee-based Firm, free of commissions. We were formed as an alternative to Wirehouses and Broker/Dealers for the community. Our mission consists of three basic principles;

  • An open door approach to communication
  • Collaborative experience with your Financial Goals through Comprehensive Financial Planning
  • Providing you with the opportunity to learn by including you in the process

The key to WatchTower is that if you, the client, decide that this type of relationship is not for you or if your situation changes, you can make the switch to another firm. You don’t have to fear lost upfront commissions and cost prohibitive surrender charges. You hire WatchTower to assist you in your Financial Goals. If you decide to switch to a different Firm, you should not be penalized for making a decision you feel is best for you and your future.
