Avantax Brings In $120 Million Financial Advisor Erin Hinzmann

By Amit Chowdhry • Jun 10, 2024

Avantax, a leader in tax-focused financial planning and wealth management, announced it welcomed Erin Hinzmann – who joined Avantax Wealth Management via Alliance Wealth Strategies. Hinzmann was previously affiliated with Ameriprise Financial and had about $120 million in client assets under administration as of May 2024.

Hinzmann joined Avantax since she wanted access to a wider array of investment products and the hands-on support of Avantax’s advanced case design team to help solve complex cases. And she also wanted the high-touch service Avantax is known for and the overall support she needs to grow her practice as an independent financial advisor.

Based near Austin, Texas, Hinzmann said she has intentionally built her practice over the past 22 years with a practical, down-to-earth style of speaking to and working with clients. Her approach to client service helped build a loyal, long-term client base. Many clients who worked with Hinzmann since their early accumulation days are now high-net-worth individuals.

Starting as a financial advisor with Edward Jones before moving to Ameriprise Financial in a similar role, Hinzmann said joining Avantax has brought her full circle by reuniting her and Bryan Clegg, independent Avantax financial advisor and partner with Alliance Wealth Strategies.


“A client’s CPA asked for an investment product I didn’t have access to in time for the client to get the preferential tax treatment, but when I looked at Avantax, they would have five options available in the required timeframe. In the short time since joining Avantax, I can already tell that the service and support I’m already getting is going to be the most incredible boon for my practice.”

“It’s been a dream to team with Bryan for the last 16 years, but it was never the right time until now. The access Bryan has to Avantax tax-strategic products and tools, its advanced case solutions team, and even executive-level support is unbelievable. In the past, I felt alone, but it’s been the opposite of that from the first time I met with Avantax. They had a roomful of specialists there, not to mention executives who gave me their numbers and encouraged me to call them – that’s never happened anywhere else.”

  • Bryan Clegg

“We couldn’t be more pleased to welcome Erin to Avantax. There’s never been a more exciting time for women in the financial services industry because I believe that the impending wealth transfer to women, amounting to trillions of dollars, will have an astounding impact on investing in America.”
