 The stereotypical financial advisor in the blue suit ends with the picture above. Hottel Capital is advice driven and we provide comprehensive financial planning, wealth management and guidance to a narrow range of clients. Some of our clients are at the Multi-Family office level. We also provide fee-only sevices for clients that simply prefer advice. Because many of our clients are business owners, professional athletes and entertainers; we only have one level of service. Which can only be described as: " Ritz Carlton service, with the convenience and speed of FedEx.”   

My partner, Matt Wilson, is the Director of Sports and Entertainment. Matt, along with our associate wealth management advisors, understands the unique needs of high net worth individuals.

When it comes to your financial goals, each decision you make and action you take will have a significant impact on your future financial circumstances. A financial blueprint will lay out what you need to do today to achieve your goals tomorrow. I'm affiliated with Northwestern Mutual because they're privately owned by our clients. Over the last 25 years, I've watched Northwestern Mutual do the right thing when nobody is looking.

Financial planning requires a commitment of time—both yours and mine.

How To Get Started

It is essential that I understand your current personal and financial circumstances and your goals for the future. I do more than determine a planning solution; I create a strategy that is right for you.

If you have any feedback or questions, please email Danny Hottel at danny.hottel@nm.com or call him directly at
