About Michael G. Nelson

As a Managing Director with Prudential, I can help you with many of the financial questions you have - from evaluating insurance needs to helping you prepare for college costs or meeting your retirement goals. My promise: to work tirelessly to help you achieve your goals. At Prudential, we are dedicated to building and maintaining close relationships with our customers– relationships founded on trust, respect and integrity. No matter what stage of life you find yourself in, as a Prudential Financial Professional, I can help you find solutions to your financial challenges. So whether you're 'Just Starting Out,' 'Settling into Retirement,' or somewhere in between, let's discuss your current financial situation, goals and challenges – and together we can help you meet your challenges.

I also enjoy relaxing at our cabin in Cross Lake, playing golf, hunting and watching my children grow up and become fine young men.

I'm Most Proud Of: Helping our clients accomplish their financial goals and achieve the dreams they once thought out of reach.


Life Happens. Being prepared makes all the difference.

You have options when it comes to your financial future - no matter your life situation.

Saving for Education

Paying for your child’s education without sacrificing your retirement can be a difficult balancing act. State-sponsored 529 plans are investment vehicles that let you make tax-free deposits for your child's future college costs. These common ways to save serve as just one tax-smart option to get you started. We’ll explore the right options for you.

Exploring Financial Strategies

We’ll work together on your toughest investment challenges – whether you need reliable income, protection from market volatility and other risks, or continuing your family legacy.

Saving for Retirement

Get help reaching your retirement goals on your terms with an annuity, 401(k) or IRA. An annuity can be a way to provide retirement income and defer year-end taxes, and an IRA and 401(k) give you options to save for the next phase of your life. See if one or all of these retirement vehicles are right for you.

A Career Designed to Grow

Prudential Advisors' financial professionals have the autonomy to being clients the most appropriate options in the form of advice and guidance. Join us for a rewarding career!

A Broad Network of Financial Experience

We believe that every person should have an opportunity to create their own unique and beautifully complex story. We empower financial professionals with the platforms, flexible product offerings, and collaborative environments of support they need to help turn 'I can’t' into 'why not?'

A Focus on Removing Obstacles

A career in financial services is more than selling insurance, annuities, investments, and fee-based planning services. We help eliminate roadblocks that distract clients from writing their own stories of financial well-being.

A Way to Build Lasting Relationships

Whether it is through the protection of insurance, savings for retirement, or college through investments or making informed decisions about their financial situation, the work we do helps to shape the stories of clients’ lives.
