Bloomington, MN (PRWEB) September 12, 2012
Sharon Olson, founder and president of Olson Wealth Group in Bloomington, Minnesota, has been honored as one of the Top Women in the Finance Circle of Excellence for 2012 by Finance & Commerce magazine.
Finance & Commerce recognizes 50 top women each year who are making outstanding contributions in their financial and business professions and who are proven leaders in their communities throughout Minnesota.
Ms. Olson is celebrating thirty years as an independent wealth governance and investment manager, dedicated to providing successful families with wise counsel and clear strategies to pursue their highest financial goals.
Sharon has provided retirement, estate, investment and business succession planning since 1982. In addition to this recent honor from Finance & Commerce magazine, she has been lauded for her high standards of counsel and service in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2008 when she was named as the nation’s “Top 100 Most Exclusive Wealth Managers,” by Robb Report/Worth Magazine*, and as one of the “Top 150 Financial Advisors in the Country for Physicians”, in 2008 and 2010 by Medical Economics*.
“So many articulate, educated people are drowning in financial information,” Olson says. “The market goes up, the market goes down, and even the smartest consumers can feel overwhelmed and confused. At Olson Wealth Group, we provide a seasoned financial perspective. Our team works to show clients what's important to their unique situations and suggest strategies that can help clients towards realizing their personal goals.”
Sharon Olson is also determined to improve the lives of others, particularly as an advocate for underprivileged girls. Olson has worked on a plan to offer sustainable assistance to villages in Ghana, Africa, she offers a scholarship fund at her alma mater, Minnesota State University Mankato, and serves on the board of the Ann Bancroft Foundation and the “Dare to Dream” program.
Olson and her fellow nominees for the Finance Circle of Excellence for 2012 will be formally honored at an evening event on November 1, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Minneapolis. Olson’s complete profile will appear in a special section of Finance & Commerce’s November edition.
