Chris Uglum


Chris has been back in his home state of Iowa since 2005. Prior to helping form Pivot Wealth Strategies, he served as Vice President for a large advisory firm from 2005 through 2011. As Vice President, Chris was responsible for developing and implementing wealth strategies for individuals and businesses.

Before moving back to Iowa, Chris worked within the institutional side of the financial industry, calling directly on retail investment professionals. That experience gave him invaluable insight into how many firms operate with respect to their client deliverables. “Having worked with hundreds of investment advisors and brokers, I was able to get an inside look at how firms work with their clients. What I discovered was truly eye opening. Although there was a lot of activity happening in most of those places, for many, managing money and communicating with the clients about the changes in their lives, were a long way down the list.” Chris leverages this experience to help clients manage their wealth effectively today.

Chris earned his bachelor's degree from the University of Northern Iowa while serving in the Air Force National Guard. He holds FINRA Series 7, 63, 66 & 24 securities registrations through LPL Financial, as well as his Life & Health Insurance licenses.

Chris and his wife Dawn were married in 2000 and have two children, Adi and Ethan.
