Joe joined Trilogy in 2010 after successfully working in investment banking firms in the Boston area. Since joining Trilogy Financial, he has focused his attention on planning strategies for business owners and highly compensated individuals, helping them to mitigate their tax liabilities utilizing qualified and non-qualified strategies.
Joe believes that an Advisor best helps clients by helping to reduce their taxes to enhance their wealth. He believes that everyone who is interested in investing in the financial markets should have either an investment plan or a financial plan. As everyone’s issues are different, each plan should be based on three factors: (1) their goals, both present and future; (2) the amount of time before they need access to their money; and (3) what will make the client sleep at night (understanding their true risk tolerance).
Joe is also an Accredited Investment Fiduciary (AIF®) to qualified retirement plans (Defined Contributions, Defined Benefit and IRAs). He is the former Vice Chairman of the Boston Stock Exchange and was the President of the Business Conduct Committee of the Boston Stock Exchange. In addition, he was a member in good standing of the Boston Securities Traders Association.
Preparation for retirement is extremely important, and it extends well beyond finances. That’s why you need to work on your retirement compatibility with your partner way before you stop working.
When selecting a Financial Advisor, it’s important to know they will be looking out for you and the money you worked hard for all your life. Not all financial advisors are the same. When considering a financial advisor to partner with, it’s important to know if they are fiduciaries, meaning they will be ethically obligated to work in your best interests to help you reach your goals.
In addition to awareness, you need action. You need focused, decisive and immediate action to see change and to get yourself back on the road to financial independence.
