Investment Management Services by Nevada State Investment Services

Nevada State Bank offers wealth advisory services through Zions Capital Advisors, Inc., an affiliate that operates in Nevada as Nevada State Investment Services (NSIS). NSIS offers investment management services to clients of The Private Bank. Their approach is to discover how you accumulated your wealth, where you want it to go; whether you’re primarily seeking to preserve your principal or aiming to add to what you have. All of these aspects add up to a profile that is yours and yours alone.

Your Private Banker and your NSIS Investment Advisor will work with you to determine the strategies and investment types that effectively address your requirements and constraints.

Because different types of investments respond differently to economic and financial events, we offer you a wide array of investment choices when building your portfolio.
