From a very early age Michael understood the value of strong, trusting relationships. Ones where honesty and therefore growth were always at the forefront. Pair that engrained value with a life altering accident involving his wife in 2011 and you have someone who will work tirelessly to ensure you have the right people and tools behind you to make a lasting difference in your financial future.
While Michael’s story is unique to him and his family, so too are his clients. Which is why he has made it his life’s work to build customized financial plans backed by innovative technology and decades of investment knowledge.
His primary goal? To ensure you have a proactive team handling your financial planning needs so you can focus on what’s most important!
Aside from focusing his time on his clients, Michael spends all free time with his wife, Tristen, and their dogs exploring the outdoors (preferably on bicycles) and working in the community with Wish For Wheels Foundation. He is an Accredited Investment Fiduciary and an Investment Advisor Representative with Trilogy Capital, Inc, in which he holds his series 65. Additionally, Michael holds his Series, 6, 7, and 63 Registrations with LPL Financial and also is Life and Health licensed.
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.
