CHICAGO (PRWEB) July 12, 2018
Registered Investment Advisory (RIA) firm Blue Prairie Group (BPG) today announced official expansion to the Twin Cities with the opening of an office in Minneapolis, MN. This is the seventh regional office for the Chicago-based firm, which also has offices in Atlanta, Philadelphia, Pittsburg, Salem (OR), San Francisco and Tampa.
“This is an important moment for us as a firm and the clients we serve,” said Ty Parrish, BPG Managing Partner. “Having roots in the Twin Cities will allow us to provide even better, hands-on, custom service to our clients across the country, and specifically in Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin and the Dakotas.”
The Minneapolis office is led by Senior ERISA Consultant Paul Sommerstad, and is supported by the full capabilities of BPG, including Wealth Management, Retirement Plans and Foundation and Endowment services.
“It’s a pleasure to return to the Twin Cities and an honor to lead the new office for Blue Prairie Group,” said Sommerstad, who returned to Minnesota after spending five years in BPG’s home office in Chicago. “I believe having a local BPG office will be a welcome asset to the Minneapolis/St. Paul business and financial community. We pride ourselves on helping provide clients with peace of mind regarding financial matters, and helping them to retire on their own terms and live out their dreams.”
Sommerstad is a graduate of the University of St. Thomas – Opus School of Business with a Bachelor’s Degree in Financial Management. He holds designations as Accredited Investment Fiduciary, Certified Behavioral Finance Analyst and Qualified Plan Financial Consultant.
