Areas of Focus

Financial Planning

How will you put the kids through college? What’s your vision for retirement? Any major purchases planned? I’ll listen to your needs and establish a plan that is right for you.

Retirement Planning

Many retirees are understandably concerned about their income. Together, we’ll develop a plan that’s sustainable and personalized for your specific needs.

Second Opinion

Feel confident in your strategy and receive insight into alternative approaches of which you may not otherwise have been aware.

Asset Allocation

Asset allocation is the process of selecting a mix of asset classes that closely matches an investor’s financial profile in terms of their investment preferences and tolerance for risk.

Portfolio Management

As markets fluctuate and your needs evolve, I will be there to make adjustments to your portfolio. By keeping you and your goals in mind, I will assure your money is always working for you.

Life Insurance

Save, invest, and pass on wealth to the next generation. I will help you write a life insurance contract focused on your financial legacy goals.

More About Matt


As a former teacher and coach, Matt has applied a more holistic approach to investments in his past 7 years in the industry. Matt always tells his clients to “Know what you own and why you own it”; and he frequently employs it to formulate and follow processes that create full experiences for his clients.

Matt holds his series 7, 63, and 65 registrations as well as Health and Life insurance licenses.

Married with 3 kids, Matt enjoys coaching his son’s baseball team, attending sporting events, golfing, and lake life. But most of all he just loves to entertain his kids.

Outside of work, I enjoy most athletic events, particularly golfing. I also enjoy spending time with my family and traveling with friends.

Mike Bindas

Wealth Advisor

Mike “Bindi” Bindas brings over 30 years of experience to his work.  He studied at North Dakota State University (and played basketball too) and started his career in the financial service industry right out of college. Today he serves as advisor and program manager for the wealth management group. Whether it’s institutional investing, retirement or personal financial planning, his mission is the same: to provide the best-personalized service, to offer clear and straightforward advice, and to develop long-term relationships so he can effectively advise his clients on the financial matters that face them throughout their lives.

Mike holds his series 7, 63 and 65 registrations, through LPL Financial, as well as Life and Health insurance licenses.  Over the years, his experience in investing has taught him this: take time to know and understand what you are investing in, and the risks involved in those investments.

Outside of work, Mike enjoy most athletic events, particularly golfing. He also enjoy spending time with his family and traveling with friends.

Kris Petrick

Kris has dedicated the past 20 years to honing her craft in investments. In fact, her most proud achievement has been acquiring her series 7 and 6 registrations at the young age of 50!

Kris has lived in Western and Central North Dakota all her life, but recently moved to Fargo to be closer to family.

She is a proud mother of two grown daughters and a very proud grandmother of three grandsons.

If you ask her what she loves most she’d say family, the outdoors, and warm weather with lots of sunshine!

Patrick McIntyre
