Bill is a native Floridian and was transferred to Michigan in 1995 by his employer at the time, NBD Bank. Bill and his wife Charlotte have been married 41 years and have four adult children and three grandchildren.
Bill received his Bachelor of Science Degree from Florida State University with a major in Finance and a minor in Real Estate.
Bill has been helping clients manage their financial lives since 1988. Bill spent 13 years in banking as a Trust Officer in Florida and Michigan, 5 years as a broker with Smith Barney in Troy, MI and has owned his own firm since 2004, located in Almont, MI which is 40 miles north of Detroit.
At the end of 2014 Bill exited the securities side of his practice to offer only “Safe Money” programs for his clients. While offering “At Risk” investments such as mutual funds, ETFs and individually managed portfolios of stocks and bonds as a licensed securities advisor, and now as a “Safe Money” professional exclusively, Bill has always put his clients’ interests first.

What We Do For Clients
Retirement doesn’t mean that it’s time to stop growing. Same holds true for your money. It should mean, however, that it’s time to stop taking unnecessary risk.
We specialize in helping retirees protect their retirement assets while continuing to move forward.
Family Legacy Planning
Many of our clients want to leave a legacy for their children and grandchildren and are shocked to learn how easy it is to double, even triple their inheritance – TAX-FREE AND GUARANTEED!
We also work with our clients and help them embrace their own mortality and be prepared for the loss of a spouse and the income burdens this can often create.
Extended Care Solutions
Long-term care/extended care costs have gone up substantially in the last 10 years. Unfortunately, the statistics are not in our favor, a plan to address these costs should be included in every retirement strategy.
The good news is we work with hybrid insurance plans that leverage your dollar in case you need it for extended care, but remain 100% accessible for withdrawal if you don’t.
Creating an income plan to last throughout retirement is perhaps the single most important challenge retirees will face. It’s very likely to spend 30 years or more living in retirement without earned income.
We create a customized retirement income plan, encompassing all sources of income, for each one of our clients and no two plans are exactly alike. Let us get to work on a plan for you.
