Towerpoint Wealth Hosts Ice Cream Social at Shriners Hospital

The Towerpoint Wealth family had a great time last week hosting an ice cream social for patients at the local Shriners Hospital for Children – Northern California.

Understanding the adversity they are facing, it felt great to put a smile on these kids’ faces with some fresh vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry ice cream from the one and only Gunther’s Ice Cream!

Towerpoint Wealth Hosts ESG/Socially Responsible Investing Event

We conducted a very well-received educational event at the John Natsoulas Gallery, combining both art and finance.

The theme was ESG investing, more commonly known as socially responsible investing, or SRI. Manisha Singh, CFA, portfolio manager and ESG expert at AIG, did a brilliant job of presenting and breaking down this important but sometimes confusing topic, and our guests enjoyed both the subject matter, the art and the gallery, as well as the fantastic hors d’oeuvres from Randy Peters Catering and Events.

ESGinvesting has gone from a fad to a trend to a full-blown movement, and at Towerpoint, we look forward to continuing to take a leadership role in this area as interest and demand continue to grow.

Schwab/Dynasty/TPW

We take great pride at Towerpoint Wealth in serving our clients as a fully independent wealth management firm, but being independent does not mean being alone. The partnerships we continue to develop with financial industry leaders allows us to leverage the expertise of important external resources, as evidenced by our meeting yesterday at TPW’s downtown headquarters with Erik Feldman of Schwab Advisor Services, and Tom Glamuzina of Dynasty Financial Partners. Both Erik and Tom, along with Dynasty and Schwab, provide us direct support and counsel as we refine and improve our client service offering and internal systems and procedures, and we feel extremely fortunate to have them as part of the Towerpoint Wealth team.

Loaves and Fishes Volunteer Day for Towerpoint Wealth

The entire Towerpoint Wealth team took a full day away from their responsibilities at the office to roll up our sleeves and help the homeless community in Sacramento, volunteering to prepare and serve lunch at Sacramento Loaves and Fishes.

It was a productive, sobering, and rewarding day of giving back to the local community and to those in great need, and we look forward to continuing to cultivate the TPW culture of volunteerism and of community outreach and support.

Compliance software upgrade at Towerpoint Wealth

A BIG thank you to our Client Service Specialist, Raquel Jackson, and to Leigh Emery, IACCP® of Dynasty Financial Partners, as we upgraded our financial technology “stack” in implementing a comprehensive new cloud-based compliance system.

Leigh continues to be instrumental in helping us work both intelligently and efficiently in properly managing our ever-increasing compliance obligations in a challenging regulatory environment. Leigh (along with Dynasty’s full compliance team) provides us with excellent ongoing support, practical guidance, and real-world solutions to a myriad of compliance issues and responsibilities, and we are lucky to have her as a trusted partner.
