Pinnacle Continues to Expand Internationally

Pinnacle entered the international market in 2012 and has entered into strategic partnerships in Europe, Asia, Latin America and Africa.

New Haven, CT, February 24, 2014 --( Pinnacle Educational Center/Admissions Advisors Group continues to expand internationally in new markets. Pinnacle entered the international market in 2012 and has entered into strategic partnerships in Europe, Asia, Latin America and Africa.

According to new data from Wealth-X, a wealth research and consulting firm, Brazil, Russia, India and China (BRIC) now have a combined 25,600 people with $30 million or more in net worth (which includes shares in publicly traded and closely held companies, residential and investment real estate, art, planes, cash and other investable assets). That is about half the number of ultra-high-net individuals in the U.S., according to Wealth-X. The BRIC ultra-rich have a combined net worth of $4.125 trillion, compared to $6.4 trillion for the U.S. According to New World Wealth, a Johannesburg-based wealth research firm, Accra, Ghana's capital, is Africa's fastest growing city for millionaires, with their rolls expected to double between 2012 and 2020.

The common denominator that Pinnacle Educational Center has observed with international parents is that clients want a reputable, trusted and exclusive private service that helps their children gain admissions into top-tier private schools and colleges. The company focuses delivering that type of global brand experience.

International families recognize the cultural diversity within the firm and that the admissions-intelligence of private schools and colleges provide the client's children with a competitive advantage.

Many U.S. parents have the idea that their children are competing with other children locally and regionally when in fact they are in global educational competition. Parents are competing with international parents from BRIC and now Africa, who understand the effect of a private, on-call advisor and the global value of U.S. educational pedigree. Instead of accepting a "good fit" in regard to their children's education, parents want elite private schools and colleges. Pinnacle is successful in affording them the luxury of choosing between their top-choice schools as opposed to being trapped with only a few choices including safety schools.

Pinnacle has collaborated with creative advertising and public relations agency, DeJoseph, Ohlsen Group, LLC in its strategic expansion into international markets.

"The wealth effects of the stock market and real estate values combined with stability of the U.S. economy have now allowed affluent international parents to look at the education of their children as their premier investment," states DeJoseph's principal and chief creative director, Lynn DeJoseph. "Pinnacle's expansion reflects its long term plan to continue to embrace the international market as well as better serve the international community. The company will continue to grow in the international market because of demographics, economics and parental demands."
