Who We Are
Dieter Drews, JD
Founder of Prism Capital Management, LLC
Dieter Drews, JD founded Prism Capital Management to better help investors build their financial future. As an Investment Counselor in Seattle, Dieter believes in challenging the status quo. Often referred to as uniquely progressive and innovative, he knew that there had to be a better way.
Dieter worked on Wall Street and at Charles Schwab & Co., Inc. where he assisted in creating “Private Client Service.” While with Schwab, he served as a Private Client Consultant, planning financial strategies for many of Schwab’s most affluent households.
Drawing from his corporate experience and cherry-picking the best investment choices and services from the industry, he found that clients gain a superior advantage through his independent service. Dieter created a firm that handled investment management in Seattle differently. He made sure that his firm put the needs of the client first by being able to deliver the best plan designed to maximize asset potential through highly cost efficient means. Thus, Prism Capital Management was born.
Dieter’s years of experience has helped him develop an investment management approach that involves the valued principles of disciplined investing with a focus on wealth preservation. He provides clear and understandable advice. He is an independent advisor, and as a result, he is clear of any conflicts of interest.
Dieter earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Chicago. He went on to attend the Syracuse University College of Law where he obtained a Juris Doctor, specializing in Federal Taxation.
Dieter Drews, JD is trained by the National Social Security Advisors (NSSA) in strategic social security planning.
We Believe in Giving Back
Whenever you’re considering doing business with a new company, it’s always good to learn about the people that make up that organization, particularly their values, beliefs and ethics.
The people who make up Prism Capital Management have a history of volunteering their time and giving back to our community. We believe that if you’re going to be a member of a community, then you have to be active and supportive.
That’s why, as a financial counselor in Seattle, Dieter Drews and Prism Capital Management have volunteered for and sponsored many charitable and non-profit organizations that do good work throughout the community.
Below is a list of some of the organizations we support:
- Washington Athletic Club: 2002 to Present: Member
- Boyer Children's Clinic Seattle: Board Member (Retired) 2005-2007, Treasurer 2007
- Make-a-Wish: 2007 to Present: Contributor and Sponsor
- Skagit Symphony: 2008 to Present: Contributor
- Girl Scouts of America: 2010 to Present: Volunteer
- Boys and Girls Club: 2010 to Present: Contributor
- Washington State Fish and Wildlife: Advisory Board – Commercial: 2011 to 2013: Board Member (Retired)
- Boy Scouts of America: 2012 to Present: Pack sponsor and volunteer
Additionally, while the primary motivation behind any charitable giving activity should be the selfless desire to help others, there can be financial strategies that help make giving back to the community less of a financial burden on you. These strategies can also allow you to give even more as a result of tax incentives provided by the government.
These charitable giving strategies are a special expertise that not every financial advisor in Seattle will have. If you are motivated to want to explore more sophisticated ways to give back to the community, then we will be happy to help.
