Nathen Christensen

Meet Nathen.

Nathen Christensen is a Wealth Advisor with LPL Financial.

I’ve been working in financial services since 2016. I am passionate about my role in helping members work toward their financial goals through smart financial decisions at every stage of life. I also love providing that sense of relief that they’re not going at it alone.

My philosophy on investing and financial advising is that it’s my job to help manage the member’s expectations and emotions by assessing their financial objectives and goals. I work with everyone from young families to retirees, and look forward to working with you.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family – my wife, Kayla; sons Rowen and Asher; and dog, Benny – as well as golfing, fishing, and hunting throughout Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Ask me anything.

What is the investing question you get asked most often?
How much should I have saved for retirement. The answer? There’s no magic number! This is why it’s important to work with a financial advisor, because what each person needs will vary widely based on several factors.
On average, how much of my paycheck should go to retirement?
I encourage my clients to save between 10-15% of their income toward retirement, although it can vary based on their overall financial situation.
How often should an advisor update their clients?
The frequency can change based on the client’s needs, but at a minimum you should meet with your advisor once a year.

Guided Wealth Portfolios (GWP) is a centrally managed, algorithm-based, investment program sponsored by LPL Financial LLC (LPL). GWP uses proprietary, automated, computer algorithms of FutureAdvisor to generate investment recommendations based upon model portfolios constructed by LPL. FutureAdvisor and LPL are nonaffiliated entities. If you are receiving advisory services in GWP from a separately registered investment advisor firm other than LPL or FutureAdvisor, LPL and FutureAdvisor are not affiliates of such advisor. Both LPL and FutureAdvisor are investment advisors 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.

Securities and advisory services are offered through LPL Financial (LPL), a registered investment advisor and broker-dealer (member FINRA/SIPC). Insurance products are offered through LPL or its licensed affiliates. Wings Financial Credit Union and Wings Financial Advisors are not registered as a broker-dealer or investment advisor. Registered representatives of LPL offer products and services using Wings Financial Advisors, and may also be employees of Wings Financial Credit Union. These products and services are being offered through LPL or its affiliates, which are separate entities from, and not affiliates of, Wings Financial Credit Union and Wings Financial Advisors. Securities and insurance offered through LPL or its affiliates are:

  • Not Insured by NCUA or Any Other Government Agency

  • Not Credit Union Guaranteed

  • Not Credit Union Deposits or Obligations

  • May Lose Value


Your Credit Union (“Financial Institution”) provides referrals to financial professionals of LPL Financial LLC (“LPL”) pursuant to an agreement that allows LPL to pay the Financial Institution for these referrals. This creates an incentive for the Financial Institution to make these referrals, resulting in a conflict of interest. The Financial Institution is not a current client of LPL for advisory services.
