The Plemmons Gallagher Cook Wealth Management Group of Wells Fargo Advisors is comprised of six highly experienced investment professionals based in Corvallis, Oregon. We formed the team at Smith Barney in 1999 and moved to Wells Fargo Advisors in 2007. Our practice has over 100 years of combined tenure in the financial industry and we are proud of the education, advanced training, and ongoing commitment to professional development that each of us brings to every client relationship. In addition, we are supported by the vast resources of Wells Fargo Advisors and maintain a strong rapport with many complementary professionals outside of the firm, such as CPAs and estate attorneys. We are passionate about helping our clients and their families succeed financially. Plemmons Gallagher Cook Wealth Management Group is honored and privileged to be the stewards of approximately 500 household relationships representing over $500 million in assets.
Our group provides customized, comprehensive wealth management that encompasses all aspects of investing and we are dedicated to helping grow and preserve the prosperity of the people we serve. This also includes liability management, risk management through various asset protection strategies, and trust, estate, and fiduciary services. Through our Wells Fargo affiliates, we offer access to lending and banking services. Simply said, we do more than just manage your money. We have built a successful practice that focuses on working with select individuals, families, pension plans, non-profits, professionals, and business owners who expect a high level of service. Many of our clients have been with us for decades and have now seen their children and grandchildren employ our practice.

The Plemmons Gallagher Cook Wealth Management Group is an asset-based, advisory (fee based) wealth management group. Advisory services including investment advice, investment planning, retirement planning, trading, and administrative costs are part of one fee (account minimums apply). We take pride in meeting with our clients on a quarterly, semi-annual, or annual basis, and as needed due to life events.

Trust services is available through banking and trust affiliates in addition to non-affiliated companies of Wells Fargo Advisors. Wells Fargo Advisors and its affiliates do not provide legal or tax advice. Any estate plan should be reviewed by an attorney who specializes in estate planning and is licensed to practice law in your state. Wells Fargo Advisors does not act as a fiduciary and does not provide tax or legal advice. However, we will be glad to work with you, your accountant, tax advisor and or lawyer to help you meet your financial goals.

Advisory services are not designed for excessively traded or inactive accounts, and may not be suitable for all investors. There is a minimum fee per calendar quarter to maintain this type of account. During periods of lower trading activity, your costs might be lower if our compensation was based on commissions.
