About Private Asset Advisory Group began in 1995 when our CEO, Mike Musich, decided that offering one product line to his clients simply wasn’t the best option. He was tired of pushing the products of only one company when he knew that there were better investments out there for his clients. Mike began searching for an alternative option where he could still use his passion for financial planning while truly helping his clients. He decided to become an independent, fee-based financial advisor. This transition meant that Mike could now offer his clients unbiased advice for their specific goals and help them choose the investments that make the most sense for them. Since 1995, Private Asset Advisory Group has grown into a full-service investment advisory and financial planning firm. Our goal is to understand our clients` complete financial picture and their attitudes about their situation. Only then can we provide effective recommendations to help our clients pursue their personal and business financial goals.For today`s affluent investor, arriving at sound long-term investment decisions can be a frustrating process. Too often, complex financial issues are reduced to meaningless discussions based on sales pitches for the currently "hot" money manager, or "top performing" fund. While perhaps entertaining, this practice obscures the basic intent of serious investors: defining and achieving your investment goals and timeframe while undertaking the minimum risk necessary.The challenge to the serious investor is clear - find and utilize a proven, disciplined, scientific investment process that maximizes return, minimizes risk and keeps you in control. Our firm can help you with this process. We aren’t motivated by our clients investing in the “hot new thing” because we aren’t paid on commission for the majority of our services. We are motivated by helping our clients achieve financial success and helping them to exceed their financial goals. While our office is located in West Des Moines, Iowa, we serve high net worth clients in Iowa, Minnesota, and Illinois. We are looking forward to meeting you and serving your needs.
