People deserve to understand what’s happening with their money.

Have you ever sat across from a financial advisor and only understood every third word they were saying? And yet they were talking about your money, your life and your future.

At Pinnacle Wealth, we believe clients should understand everything that is happening with their money; that advisors should be just as good about explaining investments as they are at making them.

First, we’re going to get to know you and discuss what’s most important to you. We’re going to figure out your goals and the outcomes you’d like to achieve with this money. We’ll do this by establishing your Family Index Number, which is the rate of return needed on your investments in order to pursue those outcomes. After we determine your Family Index Number, we allocate your money to our various investment strategies designed to help you pursue those goals.

We work with a wide variety of clients – everyone from high net worth investors to those who are just starting out. While each family gets a personalized allocation strategy, we’ve helped thousands of families navigate their complex financial needs and guided them through life’s major decisions.

As your trusted advisor, we’re focused on adding convenience and simplicity to your lives. We will make sure you’re educated on your investments and how we manage your money – as much or as little information as you’d like.

Whether you’re investing hundreds or millions, at Pinnacle Wealth we’re about much more than results – we’re about helping you understand where those results have come from and why the strategy works. If you’re tired of the mystery of investing and want to know exactly what’s happening with your money, schedule an appointment today.

Year-End Giving in a 2020 World

By Nik Aamlid, Wealth Advisor To say 2020 has brought on a unique set of challenges would be the understatement of the year. One principle I’ve always tried to live by when things seem out of control is just to do the next right thing. Not to think too far ahead, but just to control what I can control in that moment. A lot of times, that means taking the focus off of my situation and trying to help someone else. Philanthropic giving is a great way to support others and make an impact in the world. Giving is a...read the full article

In the late 1920s, an enterprising Bostonian started selling subdivisions in the sunny ‘burbs of Florida.

  • Market Commentary: Stocks Rallied in Hopes of Potential Stimulus Package

    U.S. stocks rallied on expectations that a stimulus package will be passed in the coming months and additional packages will be easier to pass. The Trump administration offered proposals closer to the most recent Democratic offer. Even if no deal is reached prior to the election, polls suggest the Democratic Party may control the presidency and both houses of Congress. One-party control makes it significantly easier to pass legislation.Read more
