Our Story and Why Ascent Wealth Management Exists
Jim Cunningham and John Lindsey co-founded Ascent Wealth Management (AWM) to better serve the clients of Cunningham Legal. They have known each other as friends and trusted referral partners since 1999. In most Attorney and Advisor relationships the care of their clients ends at the point of the referral, leaving gaps in the execution of the financial and estate plan. Jim Cunningham not only co-founded AWM, he is also serving as General Counsel, by having a vested interest in the success of AWM, there is a high level of coordination, communication, and service to our mutual clients.
John Lindsey and Christina Lindsey Orta are co-owners of Ascent Wealth Management. Both they and Alissa Kroeger are Certified Financial Planners® and bring over 50 years of combined financial planning experience to AWM.

We Embrace Transparency
There are in general two types of financial advisors:
1. The first type may have something to hide, so they may resist transparency.
2. The second type have nothing to hide, so they embrace transparency.

You might not know anything about transparency or how it helps you make better decision, but we do.

Transparency Is Everything.
At Ascent Wealth Management there is nothing hidden on our agenda, no additional motivation to anything we are recommending other than for your own financial well-being. You will always know that everything we do is for your best interest and that yours will always come before our own.

That’s The Value Of Transparency.
