James M Seretta
Financial Advisor

Gagne Wealth Management Group

"Working with successful business owners and professionals is incredibly challenging and rewarding in that their success leaves them little time to become experts in fulfilling their financial security needs. These individuals/families count on me to be their Financial Advisor and to use my 4 decades of experience with Northwestern Mutual to fill this void that is so crucial to the future of their families and the businesses they love. Further, I'm able to help my clients manage their assets and build wealth through my 15 year partnership with Merrill Gagne, Wealth Management Advisor for the Northwestern Mutual Wealth Management Company right here in my Greenfield office. Merrill gives my clients access to first class asset managment services and his expertise in retirement income planning and goal related asset management." 

Jim Seretta and his team of network specialists center their philosophy around building relationships based on trust, honesty and integrity. Jim is the "quarterback" of the team that listens to each client describe their future vision, values and needs for both their family and businesses. Jim then helps his clients design financial solutions to fit their needs, and works with the client to help implement all phases of their vision. Jim stays in touch, and as their situation changes, makes modifications that help to ensure they meet their goals.
