Qualities of Successful Summit Financial Advisors

Views from our Advisors

Mike CaputoMike Caputo, MSFS, AEP joined Summit as a Senior Financial Advisor ten years ago after nearly 25 years in the financial services industry.

Prior to his joining the Summit team, Mike was President of a privately owned pension and executive benefits firm —MAC Pension, Inc., where he specialized in solving problems, reducing taxes and maximizing opportunities for business owners and wealthy individuals.

“The reason I transitioned to Summit was that I wanted to expand my own business and wealthy client base, and to offer more comprehensive and better services to my clients. This move was a natural extension of the independent, unbiased approach to planning that I’d pursued with MAC.

Summit offered me the perfect culture and support platform to do just that. They’re not only personal and comprehensive in their approach to clients, but they also offer their associates an expert and supportive team that allows me to focus on building client relationships and my business, now as President of National Wealth Advisors, Inc.”
