Meet Our Founder

Jason Dall’Acqua CFP®



I was born and raised in Annapolis, grew up playing every sport, graduated from the University of Maryland and found my way into the financial planning profession right out of the gate…after a few months of living in Costa Rica following college.

Investing and being smart with money was something that was instilled in me from an early age, which I am extremely grateful for. It is what drew me to the world of finance when most people were still trying to figure out what they wanted to do. When I came across the financial planning profession specifically, as opposed to just investment management, I was drawn to the fact that it could help people in a multitude of ways. I knew that was the route I wanted to take – coupling my passion for investing with helping people from a more holistic point of view.


There are many different paths an advisor can choose. I was fortunate to have entered into the independent, fee-only world immediately, which in my opinion provides a level of transparency and reduced conflicts of interest.

However, I was always drawn toward being a business owner and in 2021 decided to make the leap after 9 years at my previous firm. More importantly, I wanted to serve people the way I thought was right, providing the deepest level of care and providing guidance on all areas of ones financial picture. A well constructed financial plan needs to ensure everything is aligned: investments, saving strategy, tax planning, insurance, estate plans and more.

And from that desire to provide more and serve clients the way I would want to be served, I founded Crest Wealth Advisors.


Much of my time outside of work is filled with being a dad to a little boy, and there couldn’t be anything better. Beyond that, I enjoy golfing, exercising (Peloton rides and the gym), traveling (Costa Rica is one of my families favorite destinations which I highly recommend visiting), being out and about in downtown Annapolis and spending time at the beach.


Crest Wealth Advisors is proud to be a sponsor of the Annapolis Blues FC, Wellness House of Annapolis and Historic Annapolis.

What makes Crest Wealth Advisors different?

Comprehensive – We do more than just manage investments. Planning is central to our work. We make sure to address every aspect of your financial picture including, but not limited to: Cash-flow, saving strategy, retirement planning, tax strategy, equity compensation, risk management and legacy planning.

Fiduciary Guidance – As a CFP® Professional we always act in the best interest of our clients. You may think this is standard in the financial services industry, but it’s not.

Fee-Only – We are compensated only by our clients and through no other means. This eliminates some conflict of interest inherent with commission-based advisors.

Independent – We are not affiliated with any bank, investment firm or insurance company, allowing us to provide objective advice and the flexibility to use whatever investments we think are best suited to your needs.

Personalized Service –You will work directly with our founder and lead advisor, Jason Dall’Acqua. Unlike some firms, you will not be passed along from advisor to advisor.

What does a typical client look like ?

Our clients tend to be delegators who want a trusted partner to help them make the right decisions with their money and look out for their best interest.

While we have the ability to work with anyone, we are best suited to work with people nearing or in retirement as well as younger families with high- income and numerous planning needs.

Financially, our clients tend to fall into one of the following categories:

  • They have over $400,000 they are looking to have managed, OR
  • Income over $200,000 for individuals or $250,000 for couples.
Where is my money held?

CWA does not take personal custody of your money. Our chosen third-party custodian is Charles Schwab. Your money is always held in accounts in your name that you have direct access to, with CWA acting as the investment advisor on the account. We chose Charles Schwab due to their history in the industry, size, service and breadth of available investments on their platform.

What does the working relationship look like?

We take a proactive approach in ensuring your financial life is constantly aligned with your needs as your life evolves. We meet with clients on a semi-annual basis and are always available for additional meetings as needed.

Will you work with other professionals in my life?

Yes. Because I am not an attorney, CPA or insurance agent, there may be times where we either need to bring in other professionals or work with your current team if you have established relationships. Either way, I will work with those individuals as needed to ensure a coordinated strategy.

What is your investment philosophy?

Our investment philosophy is based on an academic backed, disciplined approach. Core tenets of our strategy include: Diversification to manage risk, asset allocation to drive returns, tax efficiency, low turnover and keeping portfolio fees as low as reasonably possible. Our primary investment vehicles include active and passive mutual funds and ETF’s. We do not chase trends, time the market or react to market headlines.
