Morris Nutt, CEO, Trinity Capital Management, LLC, Wealth Management Consultant, Raymond James

Morris Nutt has been serving in an advisory role since 1997 and started Morris Nutt Financial, an independent firm in 2003. In 2014, Morris began earnestly searching for the ideal financial planning model of the future: One where investors were more in control of their financial futures working alongside the guiding hand of their supportive Financial Advisor. Thus the seeds were sown and what started as a mere vision morphed into reality in May of 2016 as the debut of Trinity Capital Management, LLC burst onto the scene.

Morris enjoys helping investors and businesses create custom financial plans, retirement plans, and strategies designed to preserve and add to their wealth. He considers his greatest talent to be teaching people of all ages and economic backgrounds the power of sound financial management.

Morris received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Marketing and Finance from the Arkansas State University and an Executive Certificate in Financial Planning from the Christian Brothers University. Morris also completed the Prudential Financial Retirement Strategy Program at The Wharton School of Business. He is licensed as a Securities Principal and has achieved The Executive Council Award at Raymond James from 2004 to 2007 (membership is based on prior fiscal year production and re-qualification is required annually).

Morris counts his relationships with family and friends as his biggest success. He spends spare time away from work with his wife, Kelly, and two children, Kevin and Kathleen. Morris and his family are active at Hope Presbyterian and enjoy traveling, boating, and sports.

Morningstar Rating for Funds
This is a proprietary Morningstar data point.
Morningstar rates mutual funds from 1 to 5 stars based on how well they've performed (after adjusting for risk and accounting for sales charges) in comparison to similar funds. Within each Morningstar Category, the top 10% of funds receive 5 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. Funds are rated for up to three time periods, -three-, five-, and 10-years, and these ratings are combined to produce an overall rating. Funds with less than three years of history are not rated. Ratings are objective, based entirely on a mathematical evaluation of past performance. They're a useful tool for identifying funds worthy of further research, but shouldn't be considered buy or sell signals.
