Their staff is highly experienced, and they view your finances as not just assets on a ledger but rather as important parts of a much more important whole.

Other Excellent Nevada Firms for Reno

Not every firm operating in Reno met our exacting standards, so we couldn’t recommend five firms from the city in good faith. However, we would also like to draw your attention to these two firms:

4) The Wealth Consulting Group

Our top pick from Las Vegas, The Wealth Consulting Group has $1.33 billion in assets under management, and while they have offices across the country, their main focus is in the state. They have a very sizable staff of experts, which means you will almost never have to wait, and you will always be working with the right person for the job.

They primarily try to preserve wealth for you and your family, although they can provide a very wide range of services. They are also careful about risks.

  • A comprehensive approach which can utilize many different types of niche planning services.
  • A willingness to work with others under your employ and collaborate with them.

5) Kingsbridge Wealth Management Group

Also from Las Vegas, we chose Kingsbridge Wealth Management Group with the knowledge that some readers might want a more exclusive option that has the most experience working with high-net-worth clients. Since their founding in 2008, that is effectively their main reason for operating. Currently, they manage nearly $186 million in assets.

They customize their financial planning and investment management services for each client, and no two plans will look the same. If they think it will work, they will use it.
