Independent, Fee-Based Retirement Planning and Investment Management

Dan Gilbertson, CFP® is the Vice President of Summit Wealth Group and Financial Advisor in Lakewood, CO.

People who find themselves in major life transitions often face a daunting task: make the right financial decision or face potentially catastrophic consequences. The problem is, most people don’t know where to turn in these times. Their options are unclear. In addition to lacking expertise in finance, their decision-making ability is often clouded by the stress of the situation. They need a guide who has their best interests at heart, who can walk with them and help clarify their options, so they can move forward with complete confidence.

Dan Gilbertson has found himself in this position before, and it is what led him to a career as a Financial Advisor and Certified Financial PlannerTM (CFP®). Dan’s life story includes unexpected loss, unimaginable pain, and grief. But having lived it, he now finds himself in an optimal position to allow his experiences to shape the way he relates with and guides his clients through similar experiences.

Dan works with many widows, widowers, divorcees, those beginning a new job, selling or acquiring a business, and those transitioning into retirement. He finds people often come to him during transition but stay when they realize the value that comes from having a Financial Advisor who they have a direct line with.

*Data provided by SHOOK® Research, LLC., as of 4/2022.  Forbes Best-in-State Wealth Advisors ranking was developed by SHOOK Research and is based on in-person, virtual, and telephone due diligence meetings to measure best practices; also considered are: client retention, industry experience, credentials, review of compliance records, firm nominations; and quantitative criteria, such as: assets under management and revenue generated for their firms. Investment performance is not a criterion because client objectives and risk tolerances vary, and advisors rarely have audited performance reports. Overall, 34,925 advisors were considered, and 6,585 (18.8 percent of candidates) were recognized.  This recognition and the due-diligence process conducted are not indicative of the advisor's future performance. Your experience may vary. Winners are organized and ranked by state. Some states may have more advisors than others. You are encouraged to conduct your own research to determine if the advisor is right for you. SHOOK does not receive a fee in exchange for rankings.
