At Winter & Associates, our principles have helped us endure through four generations of trustworthy financial professionals and become one of the oldest financial firms in the Upper Midwest. In the office, we help our clients build foundations for financial success. Outside the office, we help strengthen our communities through philanthropic work and practical retirement education. This is how we maintain our legacy.


Winter & Associates was founded in 1908 with a focus on family and building community. Our team is proud to carry on that legacy to this day through volunteering and making impactful contributions to the communities in which we live and work. By supporting causes such as the American Cancer Society, Second Harvest Heartland, Jeremiah Program, and Children’s Minnesota, we’re able to strengthen our local fabric while exploring our team’s skills in new and meaningful ways.

Every person on our team works to better the communities we call home. From education and child welfare, to combating hunger and disease, we take pride in advocating for important issues and doing our part. Because when our clients and community members are happy and prosperous, so are we. Click here to learn more about the organizations we support.
