Wings Financial Advisors:
Wealth Advisor - CFP® RICP®

Jeff Petronack

Meet Jeff.

Jeff Petronack is a Wealth Advisor with LPL Financial.

I’ve been with Wings Financial Advisors for over six years and look forward to helping many more members seek to achieve their financial goals. I love using my financial planning background to ensure my clients are on track for retirement – and that I give them the confidence knowing they can do the things they want later in life.

I started with a BA in Mathematics and Business Administration from the University of St. Thomas. Since then, I have had over 20 years of experience working in the financial services industry with Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) and Retirement Income Certified Professional (RICP®) designations.

My wife’s name is Tiffany, and we have two children. I spend my spare time with my family, traveling, playing golf, and cheering on the Minnesota Vikings.

Ask me anything.

Should I have stocks, bonds, or both?
As a general rule of thumb, the younger you are, the more you should have in stocks, then add bonds as you are approaching retirement.
I am thinking of switching my assets to Wings. Why should I?
Wings’ core value is to provide each member with outstanding service, and we take pride in doing exactly that.
What is the best way to start investing if you have nothing saved?
First and foremost, one should have an emergency fund that is liquid equal to six months of expenses. Once that is accomplished, start with tax-advantaged accounts. If your workplace offers a 401(k) with a match, be sure to take full advantage of that match. The next step is to fund either an IRA or Roth IRA. With an IRA you may get a deduction on your taxes depending on your income. With a Roth IRA, you will never have to pay tax on that money when distributions are taken after the age of 59 ½ and held for five years. Certain income limits apply.

Guided Wealth Portfolios is a centrally managed investment program sponsored by LPL Financial LLC (LPL). GWP generates investment recommendations based upon model portfolios constructed by LPL. If you are receiving advisory services in GWP from a separately registered investment advisor firm other than LPL, LPL is not an affiliate of such advisor. LPL investment advisors are registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, and LPL is also a Member FINRA/SIPC.

All investing involves risk including loss of principal.

No strategy assures success or protects against loss. There is no guarantee that a diversified portfolio will enhance overall returns or outperform a non-diversified portfolio. Diversification does not protect against market risk.

An investment in Exchange Traded Funds (ETF), structured as a mutual fund or unit investment trust, involves the risk of losing money and should be considered as part of an overall program, not a complete investment program. An investment in ETFs involves additional risks such as non-diversification, price volatility, competitive industry pressure, international political and economic developments, possible trading halts, and index tracking errors.

An annual small account fee is applied to accounts with less than $10,000 invested.
