About Nicholas Trappey, CFP®

After working for a firm that focused solely on a demographic of high investment balance clients, I came to realize that most of my friends and peers are greatly under-served. We established Pelican Wealth Management to service those that are neglected by the traditional advisor community. We work with newly graduated medical professionals, young business owners, and young professionals. We focus on the areas that are important to the vast majority of people in this stage of life – debt management, saving for a particular purchase, navigating employee benefit options, etc.

 About Michael G. Rivas, CFP®, EA

Bienvenue Wealth is a fee­-only Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) located in the heart of New Orleans, LA. I founded the firm to provide trusted, conflict­-free financial guidance to my clients, serving as a consumer advocate to younger professionals—GenX investors in their 40s and 50s—who are committed to making better financial choices.

As a wealth advisor and Certified Financial Planner (CFP®), I specialize in one thing: helping Gen X investors leverage their assets today to support a secure lifestyle tomorrow. A dedicated member of NAPFA, all of my services are offered on a fee-­only basis. I receive no compensation from any third party—a fact that gives me the freedom to recommend solutions that are right for each client…not someone else’s commission check.

Unlike many advisors who’ve learned financial planning from books alone, I’ve been living and breathing the world of finance my entire career. During my years working on the exchange floors in Chicago, I watched the investment process in action, saw how portfolios really work, and learned how to hedge by the minute—and the second. And I get that there’s more to financial planning than investments alone.

My services are comprehensive. My approach is straightforward. My fees are transparent.
