Why work with a financial advisor?

You work hard for what you earn - and want to do all you can to make sure you save and invest wisely. A financial advisor can help you achieve your short- and long-term financial goals, whether you have one or many, as well as plan and prepare for unexpected events that might arise. Through an ongoing, collaborative relationship with an advisor, plus secure anytime-access to your accounts online, you can track your progress toward your goals anytime and receive timely advice when you need it.

A comprehensive approach

At Ameriprise, we care about what matters most to you. That's why we've established a relationship with First Community Bank who dedicates their practice to helping you achieve your financial goals. Together, you and your advisor will evaluate your financial life to see how it all fits. From there, your advisor will work with you to address key needs, consider tax strategies and find ways to help fill any gaps that could keep you from achieving the lifestyle you want. Through personalized financial advice, your advisor will help you prioritize what's important today, while planning for a confident financial future.

Solutions and advice aligned to your goals

The Ameriprise Financial Institutions Group program allows us to align with the expertise and resources of Ameriprise Financial. You will have access to wide-ranging advice - from point-in-time investment recommendations and asset allocation strategies, to a comprehensive financial planning approach that covers key aspects of your financial life - to help you meet your goals. And, your advisor can provide access to a broad array of solutions to meet your specific needs, including investments, insurance and annuities, personal trust services, cash and cards.
