Michael Pellegrino is an Oakbrook Terrace, IL-based business development consultant and Investment Advisor Representative (IAR) specializing in life/health insurance and retirement planning.

Michael was born in 1971 and has been a Illinois resident all his life. He holds a Series 65 and an Illinois life and health insurance license, using which he has helped over 2,000 clients from every walk of life plan and manage their financial goals successfully.

However, Michael didn’t start his career in the financial management industry. Instead, he was a stock investor trading in stocks, futures, and commodities on Nasdaq and the New York Stock Exchange. During this time, Michael learned about the financial environment. He gained the knowledge and expertise needed to transition into his new role – helping people manage their income, investments, and retirement planning.

Along with tailoring customized financial plans for GFC clients, Michael has also co-hosted the financial and economic TV show on CBS. The show was called Securing Your Financial Feature and aired for over half a decade on WLS 890 AM radio.

He has also been on CNBC and other local news channels for interviews, stock market predictions, and financial management tips.

Michael loves serving his community through several philanthropic initiatives and actively visits the local church with his wife and kids.

Michael is also the older brother of Anthony Pellegrino – Founder and CEO of the Goldstone Financial Group. Together, they have established an empire with over 5,000 clients and managed $125 million worth of assets. Both brothers have leveraged their expertise to create innovative solutions for their clients to help minimize risk and maximize wealth.
