Hello, and welcome to Summit Financial Consulting’s refreshed and relaunched blog. There will be plenty of market insight and useful information to be found here in the coming days and weeks, but with this post, we would like to re-introduce ourselves.

Summit’s renowned team is led by co-founder and owner, Robert L. Wink, Jr. who has spent over three decades as an Investment Advisory Representatives with a Fiduciary obligation to his clients. Bob makes every effort to provide financial educational opportunities, guidance, and excellent customer service to all his SFC clients.
