Chris A Trumble

Financial Advisor |Branch Manager | Senior Vice President

I strongly desire clients feel they are cared for, have an ally, are happy, confident and empowered about their future. Together, we create a personalize Family Game Plan which aligns with their purpose and what they want to get out of life.

I strive to use my rare life experiences to bring the following to every relationship:

  • Empathy: I passionately dedicate my practice to helping families simplify life. My parents passed away by the time I was 19; for 10 years I observed the strength/challenges of my mother. It was then that I wanted to help people and families.
  • Midwest Values: Childhood and about 200 years of farm heritage taught core values such as trust, integrity, sense of morality, delayed gratification, and doing more than you are paid.
  • Global Business Perspective: I believe it is my duty to share my past experiences. With an international business degree and 17 years of diverse global business/market experience, I bring a unique perspective to each person I work with. My investment experience started when I was a teen and I continue to plan for my own family and our future.
  • Resources: I seek to add value via my team that is comprised of high-net-worth planners, investment, wealth, tax and estate planning specialists, and Baird Trust. I also work with a network of business professionals at the local level and in global trade, where needed.

Who I Serve:

I focus on a select group of serious and loyal clients that are demographically aligned with the service model. I have discovered that my successful clients and partners are focused on time, family, and careers, while valuing trusted partners to help them achieve their goals more efficiently. Further, if you are truly focused on accumulating wealth, why would you not want to place the same focus on the wealth that has taken so much time, energy, and risk to build?

Throughout my career, I have learned from some of the largest and most reputable names in the industry. My global business experience helped me easily identify a sustainable business model that can deliver superior client care. I've found a partner who truly shares my passion for creating great outcomes in people's lives and doing the right things, which match my Midwest values.
