While many big name firms offer quality investment products, those products may be chosen by people who don’t even know you.
These large firms may also impose sales quotas on their advisors – hidden agendas that limit your choices even more. At Midwest Wealth Management, Inc., we believe in the power of individual choice. A place where your voice carries the most weight in helping you achieve your vision of a well-invested future.

Midwest Wealth Management, Inc., is required by law to affiliate with a broker dealer in order to buy and sell investment products on behalf of investors. By working with an independent broker/dealer, we are free to act independently. It’s the power of personal choice that differs from that of some other, larger financial firms whose financial representatives are accountable as much to their parent company as they are to their clients.

Care for our clients in the way we would want for ourselves.
We founded the firm to be the kind of place where we would want to be clients. A place where we would be respected, informed, and heard. We do not expect our clients to demand any less.
Know our client and their vision of their future.
When we first get to know each other, we will ask you a lot of questions. People assign different values to money and approach investing for many reasons, so we want to learn about you as a person so we can tailor your investments accordingly. We want to be just as excited about your vision as you are.
Treat clients like people, not like portfolio balances.
You’ll find our firm friendly and down to earth. We’re especially good listeners. We’ve been through a lot of market cycles (both good and bad), which gives us a confident, yet realistic perspective that can help keep you on an even keel through the ups and downs.
Empower clients to feel confident about their decisions.
There is a lot to know about the investment process. Some clients want to take a more of a hands-on role; others want nothing to do with it. Either way, our goal is to make sure you sleep easily at night, secure in the knowledge that your money is working effectively for you.
Practice time-tested financial approaches.
At Midwest Wealth Management, Inc., we follow prudent financial principles. We treat your money responsibly. As your needs or financial visions change, we will work with you to adjust your course of action accordingly. We monitor your portfolio’s performance so you do not have to worry.
A broker/dealer is a company that a registered investment professional is required to affiliate with in order to buy and sell investment products on behalf of investors.
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) delegates the supervision of financial advisors to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). FINRA, in turn, requires us to choose a broker/dealer to partner with on your behalf.
The fact that we’ve chosen to work with Commonwealth Financial Network (Commonwealth), an independent broker/dealer-RIA, means that our firm remains independent, too. We are free to act independently and without pressure to promote a particular product or strategy.
It’s a model that differs from that of some other, larger financial firms knows as wirehouses, whose financial representatives are accountable not just to their clients, but also to the parent company that employs them.
Commonwealth is also independently owned and managed, which means the firm retains the freedom to allocate resources where they’re needed and to act in the best interests of its financial advisors – not shareholders.
Commonwealth was ranked “Highest in Independent Advisor Satisfaction Among Financial Investment Firms” in the J.D. Power and Associates 2013 Financial Advisor Satisfaction Study, * but it’s what the achievement means for our clients-on a daily basis-that makes the difference.
Commonwealth goes far beyond what’s required of a broker/dealer; the entire organization is built around doing whatever it takes to satisfy not only the advisors who work with the firm, but the clients of those advisors as well.
It’s that infrastructure- and the always expanding wealth of resources it provides-that makes it easier for our firm to provide you with the best possible guidance and the prompt, personal service you expect and deserve.
