How It All Started

Our journey to becoming the High Speed Alliance came from the life story of our founder and CEO, Dr. Forrest Bryant. In 2015 he retired from Dentistry after a successful exit from the sale of his multiple practices to a Private Equity Back Dental Service Organization.

After his 20-year dental career, Dr. Bryant wanted to help other doctors and small business owners to accelerate their business’ success and make their lives better. He wanted to share his secrets of success and help others achieve the Freedom and the ability to leave a legacy he had achieved. He thought he could do this by becoming a Financial Representative with a major Financial Services company.

While an advisor, he learned valuable aspects of developing and creating financial plans for his clients. However, he realized quickly that traditional financial service companies were not designed for folks like him and his friends (Dentists, Doctors, and Small Business owners.). The institutional mindset did not put their clients first. They cared more about where they could take them vs. where the clients wanted to go.

With this in mind, he set out “…to build a company I always wanted and looked for but couldn’t find.” With his knowledge of the advisement business, participation in other Doctor/Dental/Small Business investments groups, and extensive study of the family office space, the High Speed Alliance was born.

After sharing his vision with friends, family, and colleagues, the High Speed Alliance has grown organically and through referrals. Since 2017 we have helped hundreds of families on their path to Freedom and leaving a lasting legacy.

Today the High Speed Alliance is a registered investment advisor that goes above and beyond for our clients with our unique “white glove” service. We are a crucial element in our clients’ lives beyond their finances. We help our clients shepherd financial, family, and human capital for now and future generations.  Further, Faster, Together.

High Speed Alliance is relentlessly committed to making a difference not only to the families in our community but the communities our HSA families are in.  The HopeServeAction Foundation was created so that the families of HSA could combine their resources to assist families in need not just with an award of money (although financial assistance is crucial in many cases), but also in aiding HSAF recipients in developing the financial planning and life skills necessary to feel as though they have received a hand up rather than a hand out. We want to instill hope and provide lasting resources to our HSAF beneficiaries, aiming to effect positive change in each situation.
