Michael Metzger, CRPS

Private Wealth Advisor

Michael assists clients in making financial planning and investment management relatable and easy to implement.  This process begins with understanding your financial needs and objectives.  From there, we’ll determine appropriate savings plans, investment models, as well as appropriate estate planning and risk management strategies.  As your relationship grows you’ll be on the path to financial freedom.

Michael is most fond of knowing his clients on a deeper level through planned social events and educational forums. He has been working in the financial services industry for over 11 years.  Working for both a traditional investment institution and a large bank brokerage, Michael brought his investment experience and knowledge to Mission Private Wealth to work with his clients in a more in-depth fashion.  He works with his clients beyond investment management to include financial goals-based planning, including; cash flow management, risk mitigation strategies, tax planning, and monthly budgeting. 

After growing up in the Midwest and obtaining a degree from Colorado State University, he decided to move out to the sunshine of San Luis Obispo, California, where he now lives with his wife, Rachel.  Sharing a love of the outdoors, the two can often be found paddle boarding, trail running, hiking and any other outdoor activities the Central Coast offers. 

Michael is deeply involved in his community, participating in his local Rotary chapter, as well as the Cal Poly Athletics Stampede Club.  Being connected with your neighbors and local programs is an important mission of his and he is proud to be a part of the Central Coast.
