Erin Hinzmann Joins Avantax Wealth Management

Financial advisor leaves Ameriprise seeking growth opportunities, access to tax-advantaged investment products, and Avantax’s advanced case solutions team for complex-case support

DALLAS, June 04, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Avantax® Inc., a leader in tax-focused financial planning and wealth management, welcomes Erin Hinzmann who joined Avantax Wealth Management (Avantax) via Alliance Wealth Strategies LLC. Hinzmann was previously affiliated with Ameriprise Financial and had approximately $120 million in client assets under administration as of May 2024*.

Hinzmann joined Avantax because she wanted access to a wider array of investment products and the hands-on support of Avantax’s advanced case design team to help solve complex cases. She also wanted the high-touch service Avantax is known for, plus the overall support she needs to grow her practice as an independent financial advisor.

“A client’s CPA asked for an investment product I didn’t have access to in time for the client to get the preferential tax treatment, but when I looked at Avantax, they would have five options available in the required timeframe,” Hinzmann said. “In the short time since joining Avantax, I can already tell that the service and support I’m already getting is going to be the most incredible boon for my practice.”

Years Of Experience & Innovation

Located near Austin, Texas, Hinzmann said she has intentionally built her practice over the past 22 years with a practical, down-to-earth style of speaking to and working with clients. Her approach to client service helped build a loyal, long-term client base; in fact, many clients who worked with Hinzmann since their early accumulation days are now high-net-worth individuals.

Beginning as a financial advisor with Edward Jones before moving to Ameriprise Financial in a similar capacity, Hinzmann said joining Avantax has brought her full circle by reuniting her and Bryan Clegg, CFP®, independent Avantax financial advisor and partner with Alliance Wealth Strategies.

“It’s been a dream to team with Bryan for the last 16 years, but it was never the right time until now. The access Bryan has to Avantax tax-strategic products and tools, its advanced case solutions team, and even executive-level support is unbelievable,” Hinzmann said. “In the past, I felt alone, but it’s been the opposite of that from the first time I met with Avantax. They had a roomful of specialists there, not to mention executives who gave me their numbers and encouraged me to call them – that’s never happened anywhere else.”

In welcoming Hinzmann to Avantax, Laurie Stack, VP, Business Development said: “We couldn’t be more pleased to welcome Erin to Avantax. There’s never been a more exciting time for women in the financial services industry because I believe that the impending wealth transfer to women, amounting to trillions of dollars, will have an astounding impact on investing in America.”
