Philosophy & Mission

Our Philosophy

The Olson Financial Group provides investment guidance and planning to our clients through a holistic team approach. We take time to understand our clients’ investment objectives, risk tolerance, time frame, and tax issues before we work with them to create a proper asset allocation strategy.

Investment Philosophy

We take an entire look at our clients’ financial assets before we develop a strategy to assist them in pursuing their goals. We listen carefully to their investment objectives and desires before we design a plan for them. By taking a client-first approach, we can create an asset allocation plan with the appropriate risk tolerance parameters. Periodic review discussions seek to keep us and our clients’ portfolios focused on their current investment goals. As clients move through various stages of their lives, we commit ourselves to a high level of communication to help ensure they are on an appropriate path toward their goals.
 

Asset allocation does not ensure a profit or protect against loss.

 

Our Mission

Our mission is to be our clients’ primary financial resource to assist them in making the necessary decisions in formulating their investment plan.

We are committed to maintaining the highest standards of integrity and professionalism in our relationship with our clients. We endeavor to know and understand their financial situation and strive to provide them with quality information, services, and products to help them pursue their goals.

Loy U. Olson

Managing Director/
Investments, Resident Manager

With nearly 50 years of financial services experience, Loy provides guidance to his clients and assists them in making informed decisions regarding their financial goals. With the complex nature of investing today, he formed the Olson Financial Group in an effort to enhance the level of service to clients, help ensure that clients’ needs are addressed, and to better evaluate the many available investment choices that might be of interest to our clients.

Loy began his career with Ellis, Holyoke & Company in 1976. In 1978, A.G. Edwards & Sons acquired Ellis, Holyoke & Company, which is where he spent the next 30 years of his career. After additional mergers that occurred in 2008 and 2009, he moved his practice to Stifel in 2010. Stifel is a full-service wealth management firm offering the products and services our clients need. Because of this, Loy believes the move was very beneficial to the Olson Financial Group and especially to our clients.

Born and raised in Nebraska, Loy earned a B.S. from the University of Nebraska-Kearney and a Master in Educational Administration at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Outside the office, Loy enjoys golf, travel, and Nebraska sports.
