The focus is changing. It’s on you.
It’s on the future.
It’s not a new beginning. It is a step of natural growth and a willing, enthusiastic greeting of the future.
The financial service industry is in the middle of tumultuous change. DOL’s proposed changes are on-again off-again. Products and product sponsors are radically different from just a few years ago, and will probably look substantially different in coming months. Compensation structures for financial advisors continue to undergo review and pruning. Trade magazines are in continual debate with themselves over whether the future belongs to independents or to a more structured employee business model. We have the right answer for both.
The Independent Road—1099
Presidential Wealth Management is the operating division in support of independent financial advisors for Presidential Brokerage, Inc. It has been designed from the roots up by financial advisors themselves. Its sole focus is to make your life as an independent easier, safer, and more productive than any other model out there. Supported by a back-office of veteran staff, and headed by one of the industry’s most successful builders of independent practices, it is here to make you look great to your clients. Deep industry relationships, one of the widest arrays of products, strategies and services in the industry, and a can-do attitude sets us apart from the crowd. As an independent, you are the captain of your ship with the freedom to choose your destinations, your clients, and your financial solutions.
A Different Kind of Employee Model—W-2
Some people like to run their own businesses. For others, success lies in the direction of concentrating their efforts on what they do best: meeting with clients, having a team approach to marketing, working together on seminar events, and not having the stress, distraction and responsibilities of making every minute decision.
We utilize a proven high-profile strategy for marketing, positioning, and differentiation for investors across America in their ongoing challenge of obtaining high-quality investment guidance and a secure retirement. We have designed our model specifically to keep you in front of clients as effectively as possible. Brochures, logos, radio-ad copy, seminars, handouts, information booklets, and beautifully appointed offices are ready for you to get to work.
Our mission and passion is to provide a new level of service and financial strategies for retirement and other life goals. Through our extensive experience, intense caring, and numerous relationships in the financial services industry, we believe we can help individuals and families find solutions more targeted and individually considered than with any other firms we know of.
Our mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of our clients by providing the finest, individualized financial guidance to achieve life’s goals … better.
Presidential Wealth Management is unique in its broad offerings of superior wealth-building products and in its commitment toward furthering accumulation and distribution support in its many forms—financial preparation, transition, acclimation, socialization, family stresses, and staying connected and relevant.
The America’s Retirement Store marketing brand connects with community that holds on to the values and theme of Americana which has made it a great country. The community offices are intriguing, welcoming, and highly visible with significant square footage dedicated to providing education and insight.
If you are a financial professional and have been in the industry for any length of time, you know the frustrations: captive/wirehouse advisors have no freedom or flexibility; many independents struggle every day with branding and effective marketing. Rigid and sometimes unrealistic compliance at many firms staunches initiative and creativity. We believe Presidential Wealth Management offers passionate, committed advisors like you—and like ourselves—the finest real-world solutions to these ongoing challenges.
Step 1: Ask yourself these questions about your work, your dreams, your future:
What aspects of my work bring me the greatest joy?
What aspects bring me the greatest annoyances or stress?
Which of these two polarities consume most of my time and energy?
Do I ever feel as if I have way too much to do?
Am I satisfied with where I am in my career, and where I’ll be in five or ten years?
Am I willing to start something new?
How will the benefits outweigh the risks of starting now?
What things would I like to release or relinquish in moving to a new model?
How might that result in gains, both financial and personal?
Step 2: Assess your work situation
Are you one of many employees in a huge investment bank? In a wirehouse, job security comes with lack of control, quotas, bureaucracy and a feeling that everyone is in it for themselves, including the company you work for.
Do you work for yourself?
While independence is usually all about freedom, at many firms it often results in more responsibilities like running your business and managing other people. In that process, have you moved away from doing what you do best?
The concept of interdependence finds its strength by assembling a staff of like-minded people, who share the same vision and dreams. Interdependence is about releasing and relinquishing the big tasks of running a business, to focus on the things that you are passionate about.

Step 3: It’s time for you to decide, “Which is best for me?”

Sustainable investing is not new, yet many financial advisors are with broker dealers that only grudgingly have Sustainable, Responsible, Impact (SRI) or Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) programs for their sustainable clients. We at Presidential Wealth Management know that these advisors also want their broker dealer to respect this approach, as one that is valuable for a growing number of financial advisors and their clients. We know that these advisors want their broker dealer to help them become a thought leader on sustainable investing, for their clients’ benefit, and to further the growth of their advisory businesses. And, we at Presidential Wealth Management know that these sustainable advisors often need sustainable sales and marketing programs and ideas. In short, Presidential Wealth Management takes a holistic approach with helping sustainable advisors.
Best Practices Coaching:
Experience has shown us that, for advisors, simple business improvements can generate substantial benefits. Our one-on-one advisor coaching program is based on the well-researched activities and approaches that have enabled advisors to obtain substantially more clients, receive more of each client’s investable assets, and have these clients be fierce advocates for them. With each advisor, we start with a confidential one-on-one conversation, to determine their goals, past success and challenges, and past coaching attempts. Then we work together to create a simple, yet effective, improvement and implementation plan, with ongoing interaction with the coach.
The firm sponsors monthly events in multiple offices, through our One Team employee model. These events are educational in nature marketed through multiple channels.
Our creative services range from off-the-shelf resources to completely custom solutions, including print, e-marketing, and video production in our Greenwood Village studio. We are open to advisor contributions and constantly expanding our menu to accommodate the needs of our producers.

To Change the World and Our Market
The opportunity to do something truly important in life is rare. Really rare. It takes a combination of passion, commitment, and opportunity. You are already motivated to be looking at what we have going—and where we’re headed—or you wouldn’t be curious and exploring new possibilities. Good for you!
We are looking for motivated people—only motivated people—who we can further inspire with our passion to help America overcome the headwinds it faces. We are looking to make a difference!
Presidential Wealth Management and America’s Retirement Store marketing division aren’t just nametags pinned to our lapels. It is a description of who we are and what we are all about. You see it every evening on the network news and read it every day in the Wall Street Journal or USA Today: the country faces a retirement crises. Seventy million baby boomers—with another 84 million Gen-Xers and Millennials close on their heels—are unprepared for the mental, physical, and financial challenges confronting them. Our goal is to help as many as we possibly can. It will make a difference to them and to the generations that follow them.
At Presidential Wealth Management, we believe this is the greatest advisory business building environment of all time. We are focused on the future and taking advantage of this great opportunity to grow and succeed, while many firms are narrowly focused on their own profit goals and constant distractions.
As you browse through our pages here you will sense that we are different. Our client focus is on hardworking business owners who have spent a lifetime of sweat and grit building something of substance; we’re helping the stressed professional who has been consumed by their specialization and who’s looking for that special piece of financial guidance and attention they don’t find other places.
We do it all. We work with educators, craftspeople, trades, military (past and current) to help them get a fair shake. From a practical standpoint, what most of them have for investment alternatives are simply the big, cookie-cutter investment programs. We know they deserve more. And it makes a really good business model to do so.
Comprehensive Wealth Management Resources
We work with families, businesses, and high-net-worth individuals whose needs exceed the ordinary. And we do more.
Wall Street is focused solely on the highest net worth clients and mega producers. On the other end of the spectrum the discount firms use impersonalized call centers and give individual attention only to large accounts. We bridge that gap—able to assist high net worth families with their sophisticated needs while ably guiding others to reach their goals as well.
Presidential Wealth Management is looking for caring and dedicated advisors to bring America—including the “millionaire next door,” small business owners, stressed professionals—a variety of new strategies and new thinking about what will become the most important and enduring times of their lives.
Taking that Important Step—Becoming a Presidential Wealth Management financial advisor
What a rewarding career to have: helping people plan for financial security for generations to come. How could you hope to have more meaning in your life? For the passionate, caring individual there are precious-few better ways to focus your time and effort.
There is a great book by Steve Farber—The Radical Leap—that guides people who may are aspiring to have true impact and to find deeper meaning in their lives. And Farber says the primary, successful way to do that is to find ways to help change the world for the better. For years our passion has been to help the great people of America secure a better financial future – for themselves, their families, and their heirs!
What does it take to be a successful Presidential Wealth Management advisor? In some ways, maybe not as much as you think. In other ways, perhaps more. First, you must have passion to make a difference. Not simply a good intention to do something important someday, but a real commitment to take action today. Second, you must have—and convincingly present—your ability to guide people through complex and sometimes difficult decisions. People are seeking common sense guidance and direction. What they don’t want is a wishy-washy advisor who is afraid to be decisive and confident.
With the strategies, platforms, and training we provide you, you will have all the tools necessary to do that. You will have the leadership to take people from simply “some good ideas” to seeing the compelling reasoning, logic, and substance behind your recommendations and be persuasive enough to have them act.
A key member of our team is a seasoned professional specifically tasked with helping advisors be more effective and successful. Mike Sakraida has over thirty years of advisor development experience. His fulltime focus is: 1) helping advisors through the competitive analysis necessary to make smart career decisions, 2) helping advisors with the transition to a new culture, expansive investment platform, and client management system, 3) successfully helping affiliated advisors grow their advisory businesses while maintaining a healthy balance between professional and personal priorities, and 4) quickly helping them position themselves as leading financial advisors in their local community.

As one of the younger advisors at Presidential Wealth Management I have been afforded countless opportunities to grow and thrive at this dynamic company.

The culture of the firm facilitates and supports an entrepreneurial attitude. Working at Presdiential Wealth Management I feel like I am a part of something bigger, I am excited to prosper and develop as the firm grows.
As a 20-plus year advisor at Presidential Wealth Management I have witnessed many changes and major transformations at our firm. The important things have stayed the same, however. Those things all revolve around the integrity of the firm’s owners & culture. Unlike the “Profit First” credo of Wall Street, advisors at Presidential Wealth Management put the well-being of the client first with the firm’s blessing to do so.

There is a very high degree of team and family feeling at Presidential Wealth Management and the advisors here really strive to not only help our clients, but each other as well. It’s rare to find a small firm like ours that has become so recognizable throughout the community.
Presidential Wealth Management enjoys numerous strategic relationships in the financial services industry. One of the most enduring is a nearly 20-year association the nation’s 2nd-largest bank holding company and 3rd-largest provider of brokerage services (First Clearing LLC, a wholly owned division of Wells Fargo Corp.). FCC provides a world-class platform for financial professionals, research, and direct access to services such as Dorsey Wright & Associates. Other industry relationships include numerous insurance companies, annuity firms, one of the largest, and on the most successful insurance FMOs.
These affiliations allow us to provide not only the same level of financial service the affluent investor receives, but in many cases the exact same, highly-exclusive products and/or services. We can also provide the $25,000 investor access to money managers and services that typically require millions of dollars in investable assets to gain individual entry; we have very sophisticated mutual fund management programs with actively selected and monitored funds automatically rebalanced and customized for investors at the $25,000 level and above; exclusive money management programs in addition to a unique and powerful Dynamic 401k program customized for individual investors.
