"Nic had drawn up three plans, these weren't cookie cutter plans, these weren't the same plans that everybody gets, and you just stamp it out and sign your name. These plans were thought through."

- Trey Songer
"I met Nic over 10 years ago when I was looking for someone, not just some company, to manage my investments and retirement portfolio. Since that time he has done a fantastic job not only significantly increasing the value of my assets but handling all the work involved with moving assets around to enhance financial opportunities. I trusted him enough to recommend him to my Mom and to my husband. He goes out of his way, literally, to provide the face to face contact between himself and his clients that distinguishes him from the mega investment firms. He returns calls promptly, will text you virtually anytime of any day and will meet with you personally regardless of how far he has to travel. I can’t imagine what a mess my finances would be in without his guidance, patience and genuine concern for me and my family."
- Amy Gilbert -
"I had the fortunate opportunity to meet Nic McLeod through my father.  Nic managed a large percentage of my parent’s money for 10+years.  My father was particularly picky, very careful and dutiful in reviewing Nic’s recommendations.  He was very happy with Nic’s recommendations as were my wife and I.  So, we sat down with Nic to see what he would recommend for us as we looked down the road towards retirement in10+ years.  Nic helped us build a solid plan for our financial future that provides growth and safety from what may occur across numerous market conditions.  We both feel that Nic cares genuinely about doing what is right for us and our future.  We have recommended him to family members as well as good friends, which is something that we only do if someone has truly earned our trust."

Clients since 2017
“Nic McLeod has managed my retirement accounts since 2011.  He is an awesome trustworthy man! Knowing I can enjoy my retirement and that his best interest is insuring my funds are secured within accounts that cannot be affected by this looming financial storm is a blessing. Regardless of the economic aftermath that is happening in our country, I feel at home with Nic. Safety and security is key”
- Debbie Quillin -
Client Since 2011
“I can truly say that Nic McLeod looks out for the best interest of his clients.  Even when it does not benefit himself monetarily. He continues to apply himself genuinely and passionately towards a safe and prosperous future!”
- Thelma Ramsey -
When I first met Nic, he was all the things one would expect from an investment advisor... Professional, extremely knowledgeable, courteous. I also found him to be very personable, authentic, down-to-earth. Within a few minutes we discovered that he has a close friend who is also a close friend of mine; and since I knew that person’s standards and character, I felt Nic must surely measure up as well... and he certainly hasn’t disappointed. He’s continuously aware of current, pertinent information and has responded quickly to any call or text. Thanks to Nic, it’s been a relief to have confidence that my financial plan is on the right track.

About Nic

Nicolas (Nic) J. McLeod is a man of determination and competitive grit.  Whether in the gym, on the tennis court with his wife or at home teaching his children a new chord on the guitar,  Nic brings a high level of intensity and passion to the forefront.

Nic is a second-generation Wealth Preservation Specialist. He was fortunate to grow up having witnessed his father act as a trailblazer in an industry we refer to today as Wealth Preservation. This impacted him at an early age and it has now been over forty years since his father first started his practice in 1982. In 2005, Nic decided to launch his own firm and has now helped nearly 1000 families spread across the nation who have entrusted him with their financial wellbeing. Nic’s client base is diverse in both their professional backgrounds & financial needs. Nic has been actively serving his clients for nearly 20 years and proudly owns a record free of any consumer complaints. This is a direct result of the core values at McLeod Consulting.

We then take it to the next level and employ full transparency for both our clients and the multitudes of financial institutions we work with. Many of our clients have become like family and we could not be more thankful for them.”

"We look forward to inviting you to experience how our team can help you successfully navigate the years leading up to your retirement. Our team will equip you with a personal, thorough & exclusive plan that is actively managed to ensure you continue to prosper throughout your retirement years."

Image of Nic McLeod

Nic’s relationship with God and his family are the driving force of his core. Nic’s best friend is his lovely wife Shayda. They have two wonderful young children together, ages 7 and 11. Following in their father’s footsteps, they are both academically and athletically gifted. Nic is a proud leader in his home and enjoys every opportunity to teach his children anything from playing a new chord on their own guitars to the mechanics of throwing a perfect spiral in the backyard. While Nic & Shayda spend weekdays working hard to ensure their clients remain financially secure, the family spends weekends enjoying their beautiful natural surroundings in Northwest Arkansas & of course cheering on the Hogs!

Among his many accomplishments, Nic is a classically trained musician and gifted athlete. As a musician, Nic was met with quick success on local and national radio and often performed at sold-out shows in the largest and most well-known regional and national venues throughout the United States. He studied at the prestigious Musicians Institute in Los Angeles, majoring in Lead Guitar Theory and single string improv. Music continues to be a major component in Nic’s life and one he enjoys sharing with his family. Downtime is often spent composing new songs as well as improving classics for his family and personal enjoyment.

As an athlete, Nic was a highly touted D1 football prospect throughout his high school years with collegiate aspirations cut short due to a severe arch injury. He turned his recovery time into yet another venture and entered into the world of bodybuilding as a top contender. He then sought to inspire and educate other athletes by consulting for the University of Arkansas strength coaches making lifelong friends in the process. Using his extensive experience in sports and life, Nic also enjoyed helping troubled adolescents and under-privileged youth in his community as a “Big Brother” at the local Boys & Girls Club which he fondly lists as one of his top passions.

Whether recreationally volunteering in his community or professionally helping his clients secure and preserve their wealth, Nic’s sincerity and passion for betterment is indisputable.

“I believe in daily goals and mine is to be a humble servant. This is what gives me my moral compass. Our relationships and our health must be prioritized and I am committed to helping create financial success for all of my clients so they can have and spend their free time on the things that matter most to them.”
