On A Mission for Your Success

 

 

 

 

Gary Pinkerton, IAR

Gary Pinkerton, founder of Pinkerton Financial Services, believes one of the greatest values he brings to his clients is being an independent advisor. "Whether it's an investment or a life insurance policy, being independent allows me to search the marketplace for the best product to fit each client's needs," he says. "This independence widens the range of solutions for my clients."

 

A lifelong resident of Southwest Arkansas, Pinkerton spent several years as an agent representing large insurance companies. He started his own company, and then became securities licensed, to provide his clients with a complete array of investment and financial options. His credentials now include holding Series 6, 63 and 65 securities licenses, and being insurance licensed in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas.

 

"My clients like knowing they have someone who is not tied to a particular fund group or insurance company," he explains. "Every client is unique and has individual needs. We look for solutions that get as good a return as possible, with the lowest fee, for every individual."

 

An economics major at Southern Arkansas University, Pinkerton still owns a farming operation. But financial services has always been his calling. "I'm a Christian and I have to operate my life based on Christian values," he says. "I'm not saying I'm perfect, but I try to make every decision,

for myself and my clients, based on my Christian values."

 

Pinkerton's primary objective is to help people protect the assets they've worked so hard for.

"I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that I've been able to do that," he says. "It's pretty rewarding to be able to give people the sincere, honest advice they need."

 

And whether they are low-risk-seeking clients getting close to retirement or those looking for the potential for higher returns, he is confident he can create a plan that serves their goals. His affiliation with Virtue Capital Management, for example, gives him access to numerous investment and portfolio options.

 

When not helping people secure their financial futures, Pinkerton enjoys spending time with his wife of more than 40 years, Debbie, and their daughter, Lori, and two granddaughters. An avid turkey hunter, he also likes to fish and enjoys playing country and gospel music on the guitar and mandolin.

 

Pinkerton is a deacon in the Athens Missionary Baptist Church where he teaches adult Sunday School. He is also proud to be a qualified speaker for Gideons International.

The Financial Services That We Provide.

We want to get to know you in order to help you make the best decisions possible. As a firm, our focus is to understand your goals and develop a plan to reach them.  At Pinkerton Financial Services, we analyze, assess, and compare every option available to us to come up with a plan tailored specifically for you, not a cookie-cutter strategy. This approach puts us in a unique position to provide the best possible scenarios and solutions in our quest to open every door available for your financial future.

Retirement Planning

We start by analyzing your retirement goals and looking at every avenue that can provide you with a secure retirement income. Stocks, bonds, mutual funds, real estate, debt, tax implications, cash flow (income and expense) current life insurance and annuity policies, and defined-benefit plans (e.g. social security, traditional pensions) will all be analyzed on your behalf.

 

Estate Planning

We will assist you in developing a comprehensive plan to pass your assets on to future generations.  We work closely with local law firms and CPA's to discuss wills, trusts, beneficiaries, powers of attorney and other documents in an effort to maximize the value of your estate while reducing taxes and other expenses.

 

Annuities

Should you consider investing in an annuity? If so what type? Fixed annuity, variable annuity, fixed indexed annuity?  One of the keys to annuities is to invest in the ones that work the best for you and your family.  We work with over 30 insurance carriers that provide many different types of annuities to help our clients reach their goals.

 

 

Life and Health Insurance

Insurance is a key component of financial planning. Our licensed life and health insurance agents will help you decide the right type and coverage for your insurance policies. There are many life insurance policies available today that  not only offer a death benefit when you pass but can be used to withdraw tax free income in retirement or pay for long term care.

 

Individual Retirement Accounts

IRAs are tax-deferred or tax-free ways of saving for retirement. You can choose from traditional IRAs, Roth IRAs, and 401k rollover options. We have products from hundreds of providers to help you select the type of IRA that best fits your needs.

 

Saving and Cash On Hand

Emergencies and urgent circumstances may require access to additional funds. As part of our service, Integrity will analyze your individual, marital and family situation and advise you on the best cash management plan to maximize your investment dollars while maintaining sufficient cash on hand.
