At Buck Wealth Strategies we take a different approach to financial planning. We are not a firm simply looking to be transaction oriented. Our approach is to develop and build upon a trusted relationship and rapport; getting to know you personally and understanding your financial objectives before partnering together in creating a diversified, financial roadmap and strategy. What does money mean to you? What are your wealth-building objectives? What is your tolerance for risk? How charitable do you plan to be during your retirement years? What (if any) legacy do you hope to leave behind? Will these goals be met in the event of an untimely death, disability, or long-term illness?
Knowledge is power. It’s also the foundation for intelligent, well-considered decisions. When you have retirement in sight, sound decisions are vital in helping you pursue your goals and avoid costly mistakes that can affect your future.Learn More
