Credential Securities

I became an Investment Advisor in 2013, and it’s been highly rewarding because I enjoy working with my team and love that I can offer everything the larger firms have, but at a fraction of the cost to our members. The more money that members keep in their pocket, the more they can save, invest and grow wealth over the long term.

I have been working with Peter Nikolakakos for over ten years. He has consistently exceeded my expectations and goes above and beyond to help me achieve my investment goals and build a strong financial plan. I would highly recommend Peter for the dedicated level of service he provides his clients.
–John C.

Frank Sgro has been very proactive and highly dedicated in all the time I’ve worked with him. He always makes time to talk with me about my goals and keeps my best interest at the center of the plans we make together. He has been a pivotal part of helping me prepare for my financial future, and I would, and have recommended him to anyone looking for investment advice.
–Paulo C.

We met Peter Tessari through a presentation he was giving for retirees. He used his extensive investment planning knowledge and expertise to help us build a successful investment portfolio. He actively listens to our concerns and provides guidance without straying from our preferred strategy for our finances. We’ve seen excellent growth on a conservative portfolio and feel secure about our nest egg with Peter’s advice.
–Janusz R.

We worked with Peter Nikolakakos to finalize our estate planning. It was a daunting process and we didn’t know where to start. Peter provided us with the information we needed, answered all of our questions, and clarified the steps to take to ensure our affairs were in order. He was immensely helpful in setting us up for what we need to do now, as well as what to think about for the future. We give him a 10 out of 10!
