CoastHills Wealth Management VP recognized as one of nation’s leading financial advisors

Altheide’s investment services to Credit Union members have earned him LPL Financial’s prestigious Patriot’s Club honor eight of the past 20 years

LOMPOC, CA (May 15, 2018) — CoastHills Credit Union’s Vice President of Wealth Management is once again being recognized for his premier performance as one of the nation’s leading financial advisors.

Bruce Altheide has been named to LPL Financial’s Patriot’s Club, an award presented to less than 8 percent of the firm’s approximate 15,000 financial advisors nationwide.

The award is based on annual production of all registered advisors supported by LPL, and this is the eighth time in past 20 years that Altheide has been awarded the honor for the investment services he provides to CoastHills members.

“On behalf of LPL, I congratulate Bruce,” said Andy Kalbaugh, LPL managing director and divisional president, National Sales and Consulting. “Bruce has demonstrated tremendous value to his clients with the service he provides to help them pursue their financial goals. We thank Bruce for the contributions he makes to his clients, his commitment to offering his clients independent financial advice and his ongoing relationship with support of LPL. We wish him continued success.”

For 30 years, Altheide has been providing financial services to clients on the Central Coast, and CoastHills members receive a full range of services from him, including retirement and financial planning, individual money management, individual stocks and bonds, mutual funds, annuities and more.

“The Credit Union and its members are so fortunate to have Bruce’s knowledge and experience working for them right here at home,” CoastHills Interim President/CEO Dal Widick said. “We’re proud to congratulate him on his continued performance as one of the nation’s best.”
