Manage your investments at Bell

How do we build investment portfolios designed to meet long-term goals? With nearly $5 billion in assets entrusted to us, we balance our focus between managing acceptable risk and delivering superior returns.

Bell’s investments compete favorably with those of national managers across the country – and often do so at a lower cost.

Why Bell

We listen to each customer and offer personal service and guidance. It’s what sets us apart from the rest.

  • High net worth individuals and family investment management
  • Investment management on behalf of foundations, endowments, and nonprofit organizations
  • Investment policy and strategy – for boards of directors and investment committees
  • Philanthropic solutions – customized investment policy, grant administration and liquidation of assets, if needed, for nonprofit organizations

Our team uses a broad array of investments – including stocks, bonds, alternative assets and real estate investments – to meet your objectives, whether for streams of income, tax advantages or capital appreciation.


IRAs and Rollovers

Plan now for a secure retirement. See if an IRA is the right plan for you.

Individual retirement accounts (IRAs) help clients plan for a secure stream of retirement income. If you have changed jobs, retired or need to consolidate previous retirement funds, a rollover into an IRA can provide you with important investment and tax benefits.

If you have retired or undergone a job change, you should consider rolling your existing retirement funds from your previous employment into an IRA. A direct rollover to an IRA provides you with important benefits:

  • No immediate taxes or penalties
  • Continued tax-deferred investment returns
  • Expanded investment choices

Bell Bank Wealth Management makes it fast and easy for you to roll over retirement funds into an IRA. Once you sign the paperwork, we take care of the rest. Let us help you decide the right IRA choice for you.



  • Roll over funds from an employer retirement plan
  • Establish new IRAs – Roth, Traditional, Simple or Simplified Employee Pension (SEP)
  • Tax-deferred method of saving
  • Continued tax-deferred investment returns
  • Expanded investment choices

When you open an IRA with us, you'll receive additional benefits as well: 

  • Personal consultations on new IRAs, rollovers and consolidating accounts
  • Low-cost asset allocation if you wish to delegate daily oversight to our professional money managers
  • Quality mutual funds if you prefer to manage your IRA yourself
  • Online account access with financial calculators and tools to project future balances
  • Optional electronic contribution from your checking account
  • Full fee disclosure, with no surprises down the road
  • Free, informative quarterly investment newsletter
  • People who are accessible – we actually answer the phone!
