You need a partner who understands your immediate needs and your long-term goals. And one who gets your local perspective and can deliver personalized service to support your success.
We are poised to be your trusted partner.Nick Pszeniczny

Excel Private Wealth
Excel Private Wealth is in the process of becoming a dynamic, full service, national mutual fund
It has never been a better time to partner with us.
- Nominee – this new component of our offering makes life easier for advisors and clients alike—a nominee account enables a client to centralize all of their investments without having to open multiple accounts.
- Transactional module and eSign – we have introduced this functionality to provide advisors and clients with more autonomy. The transactional module enables advisors to complete their own trades and follow them through, and eSign enables advisors and clients to do business from anywhere.
- Our onboarding process, compliance program, and our commitment to timely communications and open Zoom sessions, all help our advisors to run a compliant practice. We’ve recently made improvements to our advisor intranet and public website to provide relevant and current information.
And we’re not done yet! Contact us today to learn more.
