James E. Pinzker, Managing Director, Pinzker & Associates - which is associated with A.G.P., a national boutique firm that provides comprehensive wealth management and investment banking services. With 30 years of experience in the financial services industry, he has worked with some of the largest and most reputable firms in the world, such as B. Riley Wealth, Oppenheimer, UBS, Smith Barney, and Merrill Lynch.

James believes that the most successful investors find a way to remove emotion from their investment decisions. He applies a strict buy/sell discipline that he updates every two weeks, depending on earnings, to maintain investment discipline and objectivity. He also has a deep knowledge of the syndicate markets, which helps to differentiate himself. Aligning your capital and purpose, he specializes in working with business owners, affluent corporate executives, and physicians, helping them achieve their financial goals and objectives. Based out of South Park in Charlotte, he enjoys spending his downtime with his young family enjoying the Carolinas.

After graduating in 2018 and eager to take the next step in my career, I joined James Pinzker's team at B Riley Wealth in Chicago as his sales assistant. Since then I have moved across the country to establish a new branch in Charlotte, North Carolina with Jim and gotten my SIE, Series 7, and Series 65+63 licenses. When I am not working a syndicate deal or recruiting for our new office I enjoy spending time outdoors with my daughter.
