Whitney Emanuel

CEO & Financial Advisor

Whitney Emanuel has been a financial adviser for 8 years. She began at Ameriprise Financial and branched off on her own to start Strategic Visionaries in 2016. She took an even bigger leap at the beginning of 2019 to leave the big-box financial world to go completely independent! She holds her FINRA Series 7, 63, 65 & state insurance licenses and her CRPC® certification.

Whitney works with “out-of-the-box” thinkers: creatives, entertainers, entrepreneurs and small business owners to implement on the vision of their lives by re-creating money stories. She believes money is simply the means to your end and creates strategies to customize her clients’ benefit plans, children’s education funding, investment, estate and savings plans aligned with their values. As a single working parent with her own business, she understands the challenges and customizes solutions for her hard-working clients, many of whom are caretakers themselves.

Whitney is passionate about organizing and attending community events to make connections and enrich lives. She resides in Minneapolis with her 6-year-old daughter, Zurisadai, and their 6-year-old Great Dane Mastiff, Anaba.

Top Women in Finance award is published by Finance & Commerce magazine.

Also factored are leadership and mentoring roles in the community. Advisor performance is not a criterion. The award is not indicative of the advisor’s future performance and working with a nominee does not guarantee investment success.
