Prentis Wealth Management Group of Wells Fargo Advisors

At the Prentis Wealth Management Group of Wells Fargo Advisors,
we believe that wealth management should be personal.
Your values matter.

In a world of automated service and impersonal advice, we strive to provide truly individualized financial guidance and exceptional service to the individuals, families and institutions who have entrusted us with their life savings. We build and manage customized portfolios to help each client plan for the long term, particularly when so much of the short term may seem uncertain.

We are:


We offer you a foundation of integrity, experience, compassion and prudent advice.


We are accountable for the decisions we make and the recommendations we give.


We search the entire investment universe to find or create the distinct strategies that can meet your unique needs.

Since 1981, we have helped clients design retirement plans, fund educations, buy, grow and sell businesses, create legacies, and pass on their wealth—and values—to future generations.

"A true sense of financial security comes from having a solid plan."

- Peter Prentis, CFP® Managing Director - Investments
