Team Previously Managed Approximately $300 million in Client Assets; One of the Only Independent Firms Offering Multi-Family Office Services in Colorado Springs, CO
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–A Colorado Springs financial planning team announced today that they have partnered with Dynasty Financial Partners and are launching an independent wealth management firm called Intergy Private Wealth.
Joining Intergy Private Wealth from Northwestern Mutual are a total staff of eight professionals including 3 advisors:
- Mark Perrault CFP®, MBA, RICP®, President, Managing Partner
- Charlie Dunn CFP®, RICP®, CEO, Managing Partner
- Geoffrey Thomas Schaefer CFP®, Wealth Advisor
“The industry is changing rapidly, and we felt it was important to put ourselves in a position to adapt to our clients’ needs. And, by partnering with Dynasty, we are receiving significant support with compliance, research and technology integration,” said Mr. Perrault. He added, “We are excited to be the first financial planning firm in Colorado Springs to have a true multi-family office offering. We also plan to launch a unique coaching/advisory service geared towards business owners considering a sale.”
Intergy Private Wealth is an independent wealth management firm, working with business owners, retirees, physicians, defense contractors, technology & real estate professionals and retired military.
The firm helps clients navigate their RSU/ISO plans, determine an appropriate diversification strategy, determine if 83b election is appropriate and quantify value if the client is considering a career move. In addition, Intergy works with small business owners considering a sale, using their planning tools and expertise to determine the appropriate net proceeds needed to meet their goals.
Intergy Private Wealth will be selectively looking at M&A opportunities in the future. The ability to offer multi-family office services will expand their footprint in the UHNW space and allow the firm to better serve foundation clients. The firm plans to extend their service in the philanthropic and planned giving space.
According to Mr. Perrault, “Colorado Springs and Colorado, in general, is a hotbed for remote work in the tech industry. Amazon is opening a major facility here and our four military bases also foster an environment for aerospace and defense companies. We have noticed the pandemic influencing people to take early retirement options from government positions and large corporate organizations. The strong economy has also boosted valuations for small business and we are seeing really strong multiples being paid.”
To create a distinctive name, the team combined ‘intuition’ with ‘energy.’ The name Intergy implies Knowledge in Action, a metaphor for developing a plan and implementing its recommendations.
According to Shirl Penney, CEO of Dynasty Financial Partners, “We are delighted to welcome Intergy Private Wealth to the Dynasty Network. Mark, Charlie and Geoff have exciting expansion plans in a booming market. We believe they will thrive in the independent arena.”
“When we first started speaking to Mark, Charlie and Geoff, they had a clear vision of how they wanted to evolve their business model to serve their clients better. After much due diligence, they came to believe the fully independent RIA model, supported by Dynasty, offered the freedom and flexibility they needed to continuously evolve their practice and services in support of their increasingly sophisticated client base,” said John Sullivan, Head of Network Development at Dynasty Financial Partners. “We believe they are well-positioned to grow their business rapidly and we are excited about our partnership with the Intergy Private Wealth team.”
