Benjamin “Rhett” Fordham serves as a senior vice president with Pinnacle Asset Management and offers securities as a financial advisor with Raymond James Financial Services Inc., member FINRA/SIPC.

Rhett helps his retail clients understand the differences between investment types—whether a 401(k), CD, managed stock fund or equity account or a 529 plan—and put together an appropriate plan to meet their needs. From asset allocation funds to structured notes, he teaches his clients about all suitable investment options and how to reach their investment goals. Once the plans are in place, he monitors and reviews their progress and takes into account market trends to help maximize growth and potential return.

Rhett began his financial services career in 2002 as a licensed sales assistant for SunTrust Investment Services. He also has served as regional sales director for Riversource Annuities and as an investment advisor at Fifth Third Securities. Rhett joined the Pinnacle team in 2013.

When he is not watching the market, meeting with clients or studying updates on an array of different investments, Rhett is likely at home chasing his young triplets.
