I am a Securities America financial advisor with my own business, Zahn Investment Group, based in beautiful Duluth, Minnesota, on the shores of the greatest great lake, Lake Superior. I specialize in retirement, retirement, retirement – in it, transitioning to it, saving for it, striving to get the most income during it!
I also work with people who may need a trusted financial advisor to help walk them through a 401(k) rollover, figure out how to preserve and wisely invest an inheritance, perform a check-up of their fiscal fitness, or invest for college, for example. I can charge by hourly consulting, traditional commission or sales charges, or on a fee-basis, and we discuss this thoroughly.
I want a long-term relationship with clients. Know that I work strictly for you, listen intently, offer choices, and care whether your investments are right for you—with no company agenda to promote. It would be my privilege to hear from you!
