Renewable Energy / Responsible Investing Dinner at Grange

A successful client event is usually a product of good people, delicious food and drink, and high-quality content and information, and we were fortunate to have all three last night!

We were proud to bring together an amazing group of Towerpoint Wealth clients and friends to socialize, mingle, and learn, specifically about the important message that Blackrock’s Thomas Baker delivered during his presentation at Grange Restaurant & Bar on alternative investments and, in particular, renewable power.

Thomas did a brilliant job of presenting and breaking down this important and multi-faceted issue. One thing is for sure – just like sustainable investingrenewable power is no longer just a trend, but instead, a full-blown movement, and we were pleased to host an intimate forum to objectively discuss the unique advantages, disadvantages, and merits of investing in both solar and wind projects.

We were fortunate to have 45 clients, colleagues, and friends join us for the Wealth + Health: The Ultimate Wellness Prescription event we hosted at The Vintage Monkey in Sacramento.

Charles Schwab Amplifying Your Value Workshop

Our President, Joseph Eschleman, attended a full-day workshop today held at the Hyatt Regency in Newport Beach, CA, and learned ways to best communicate and articulate the value Towerpoint Wealth brings to our clients and preferred network partners. Charles Schwab’s Managing Director of Business Consulting, Jerry Cobb, led the workshop, and sitting alongside Joseph was Tom Glamuzina, Towerpoint Wealth’s relationship manager and Senior Vice President at Dynasty Financial Partners, and Meghan Holmes, Towerpoint Wealth’s Strategic Relationship Manager at Charles Schwab

Towerpoint Wealth continues to advance along our growth trajectory as we work towards solidifying our position as the premier wealth management firm in the greater Sacramento Valley area. Workshops like Amplifying Your Value help us to refocus (and in some cases, fully reset) how we are differentiating ourselves, how we are adding value to our clients lives, and how we are enhancing our overall suite of wealth management services and our client service objectives.

First annual Towerpoint Wealth Retreat a Hit!

The Towerpoint Wealth family enjoyed bonding together at our first annual TPW Retreat on Friday and Saturday morning. We had breakfast at Awful Annie’s in Auburn together. We hiked the Donner Summit Abandoned Railroad train tunnels together. We convened at Steve Pitchford, CPA, CFP®‘s cabin to discuss the current and future state of affairs at Towerpoint Wealth together. We enjoyed dinner at Cottonwood Restaurant together, and breakfast together the next morning prepared by our own Jonathan LaTurner.

Operative word – together! It was truly a fun, productive, and memorable 24 hours, and we all look forward to the 2nd annual TPW Retreat ASAP!

Teen “Financial Forum” held at Towerpoint Wealth

Towerpoint Wealth hosted a one hour “Financial Forum” for four teenage extended family members of current TPW clients Rich and Robin Martin, “holding court” in a round-table discussion about money, wealth building, risk, spending, and financial independence. A myriad of different topics were discussed, including:

1. The distinction between “making money” and “building wealth
2. A 10,000′ overview of what stocks and mutual funds are, as well as the importance of dividends and investment income
3. Why paying yourself first is essential; why a “pay yourself” rate of 10% is the bare minimum, and a rate of 20% is ideal
4. How to develop a solid financial foundation as a teenager heading into college, and the financial pitfalls and considerations that college students face

It was both a spirited and educational meeting in Towerpoint Wealth’s “anti-conference” room, as we sincerely enjoy spreading the “financial gospel” about these important financial issues to today’s youth, future investors, and capitalists.

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.
