David Hohmann


David Hohmann cares about you. He listens, asks for clarifications, and gets to the heart of the vision for your life. When you meet with him, you will experience his deep sense of responsible concern for family, formed while learning about teamwork with his brothers and sisters after his father died. Since that time David has been developing skill sets that help others to help themselves. This has resulted in the development of sophisticated financial plans defined by the ease with which they are implemented and maintained. Nest Egg Wealth Management Inc. will help guide you toward the life you want!

David’s experience as both a private banker and a financial advisor offers a unique insight into both sides of the balance sheet. He recognizes a financial plan is meant to generate a sense of well-being right now and secure a vision for the future. David enjoys utilizing a holistic approach to wealth management, where liabilities and assets are placed in a symbiotic relationship to best pursue your vision. Recently, David called his clients when interest rates dropped to talk them through their options for decreasing their mortgage payments.

David can help you generate new streams of income to enable the things you want in life now while planning for later. His acumen for service and results has been developed by his time at Provident Federal, Associated Bank, Merrill Lynch, and Morgan Stanley Smith Barney. Being a financial advisor is more than the digits in an account; it’s about helping people to live the life they want.

For him, wealth offers you the freedom and liberty to enjoy life more thoroughly. Stephanie, the love of his life, refined his knowledge of wealth management by helping him better understand the purpose of client’s portfolios.  Together, they developed the concept of “flexible wealth,” a term that has become integral in the lives of their children and extended family. “Flexible Wealth” encourages spontaneity and creates the environment for a memorable experience with your children or family. It provides the opportunity to take your breath away on the mountainside as you look towards the horizon. It’s the ability to pursue what feeds your soul. “Flexible Wealth” is designed to reflect each stage of your life.

David looks beyond the investing of your money…he wants to help you live the life you want.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I start a 401(k)?

For those who are not self-employed, many times your employer will offer this opportunity after you have worked for them for several months. In this case, you will need to file the appropriate paperwork to have the deposits taken out of your paycheck. Sometimes your employer will offer what is called a Self-Directed Brokerage Account. This is where you get to choose who manages your 401(k). Our established relationships with some of the well-known portfolio managers in the country may be available to you. When you work with us, we can help you establish your Self-Directed Brokerage Account.

How do I start investing money?

Your first step is to start saving. With the amounts you hold back, you can start placing that money in varied investments appropriate to your financial situation. We highly suggest you contact us to discern your tolerance for risk, the suitable strategies for your financial goals, and to implement and execute your investment strategy with precision and efficiency.

How do I assess my tolerance for risk?

First, answer this question: “What is the purpose of this investment?” Next, consider the timeline. If you want to use the money for something in the next three months, your tolerance for risk will be much lower than if you did not need that money for another 10 years or more. Reach out to us and we will help you define your tolerance for risk in our initial interview. We offer access to Riskalyze, a state-of-the-art e-tool designed to help you recognize your true risk tolerance.

What factors play into how I should plan for retirement?

Age. Dreams. Time. These three elements determine how you will need to prepare for retirement. Your age reveals your potential earning capacity, as well as the amount of deposits you will be able to make. Your dreams will offer insight into the life you want to live once you have retired. Defined by those dreams, we gain insight into the financial tools that will encourage your plan for retirement. With an understanding of how much time we have between now and when you retire, we implement strategies and a rational plan to pursue it. Ready to have us help you answer those three questions? Create your customized plan and contact us.

Where should I be investing money?

Are you building or withdrawing? Are you investing for yourself or yourself and others? Is it for higher education? A bigger house? A confident retirement income stream? As much as we would love to give one simple answer, your investment strategies depend first and foremost on YOU. We offer custom strategies to your investment needs. Let our experience help define the “You” in your investments.
