Born in Minnesota, Chris Nolt moved with his family to Montana at age 15 and spent his summers during high school and college working on large cattle ranches in Big Sky country. Through this experience and the guidance of his loving parents, Chris developed a solid work ethic and strong values that he has applied throughout his career as a financial advisor.
After graduating from Montana State University in 1987 with a Bachelors degree in Business, Chris joined Mutual of Omaha as a life and health insurance agent. He later joined the Principal Financial Group and obtained his securities license before becoming an independent insurance broker in 1993 and registering with several large broker-dealer firms.
Increasingly frustrated with some of the sales practices of securities firms and insurance companies, Chris eventually formed his own independent, fee-only Registered Investment Advisory firm, so he could serve his clients without the conflicts of interest many other advisors face.
For more than two decades, Chris has put into practice the proven strategies he learned for helping people protect their assets, plan for a successful retirement, and preserve wealth for their heirs. His diverse background enables him to help clients successfully navigate today’s complex financial world and make smart financial decisions to achieve the things in life that are important to them.
Chris is passionate about helping people grow and preserve their wealth, and he has built many long-lasting client relationships over the years with his sincere educational approach. He has presented educational workshops and continuing education classes for CPAs, attorneys and real estate agents throughout the West, and his financial articles have been published in several national newspapers and magazines.
Chris is a devoted husband, father and Christian. In his spare time, he enjoys mountain biking, photography, camping, hunting and fishing.
