San Diego, CA – Aug 11, 2022 – Financial Advisor Jim Petrizzo, founder of Petrizzo Financial in Boulder City, NV, has partnered with Independent Financial Group, LLC (IFG), an independent broker-dealer based in San Diego, CA.

Based in Boulder City, NV, Jim Petrizzo operates his family firm with his wife, Michelle Petrizzo, and daughter, Chelsea Petrizzo. Jim and Chelsea are registered financial advisors, and Michelle’s role covers administrative support. Petrizzo Financial is located inside the Boulder Dam Credit Union. The firm’s motto is “Our family helping your family build your financial future.”

Jim Petrizzo started his firm after witnessing his aging parents’ experience with exploitation at the hands of their financial advisor. “My parents were just coming into retirement age, and I was concerned that they were being taken advantage of, financially,” he recalls, adding, “I wanted to go into this business to help people and treat them the way my mom and dad should have been treated.” Jim had no prior experience in finance before founding Petrizzo Financial in 1991, and recently celebrated 31 years in business. “We don’t do anything short-term,” he said.

Petrizzo Financial joined with IFG on March 24, 2022. “We were seeking a broker-dealer that offered true independence, because we’ve been stuck with other firms before that tried to fit our business into a mold,” said Jim. “We are thrilled to welcome Petrizzo Financial to the IFG family,” said David Fischer, IFG co-founder. “We believe in helping small family firms realize their unique vision of success.”
