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.
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.

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.

Earlier this month, our Director of Tax and Financial Planning, Steve Pitchford, was a guest of George Grombacher’s Money Savage podcast. Steve and George spent 20 minutes discussing income tax minimization strategies associated with building and managing one’s investment portfolio. Noting the importance of focusing not on pre-tax returns, but instead on after-tax returns, Steve highlighted a number of strategies we use at Towerpoint Wealth to help clients reduce their obligation to Uncle Sam, and concurrently, maximize the after-tax growth of their portfolios.
