Our Story

Welcome to Integrated Wealth Management

Integrated Wealth Management (IWM) was formed in 2001 by Brent S. Pine, Managing Director, Partner & Wealth Advisor, CPA, CFP®, a three-time Five Star Wealth Manager recipient, as seen in Phoenix Magazine. IWM operated as an Arizona-based, independent Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) for over two decades. In 2021, IWM teamed with Carson Partners to leverage Carson Partners’ robust technology, investment management and advanced planning services. IWM’s shared goal with Carson Partners is to make the complex simple in financial services and to provide a “Best in Class” experience for its clients.

Secure Retirement

IWM believes growing and protecting wealth for a secure retirement involves three key elements:
  • Developing a Financial Life Plan for each client reflecting your unique circumstances, and then monitoring progress toward your goals.
  • Building a diversified investment portfolio including both strategic and actively-managed components designed to meet your goals while seeking to provide downside protection. Portfolios are stress-tested to assess how they will potentially perform under adverse conditions based on historical data.
  • Surrounding our clients with a team of professionals who have unique and deep subject matter knowledge in tax and estate planning, as well as retirement income management

Financial Life Plan

Based on an in-depth discovery of your needs, IWM develops your unique Prosperity Plan which is monitored and reviewed with you and modified, as life changes occur. Through our advanced planning division and through a network of highly skilled professional firms we cover a multitude of disciplines:

  • Investment Management
  • Estate Planning
  • Tax Consulting in coordination with your current tax professional
  • Commercial Liability and Personal Insurance Services
  • Corporate Trust Services
