I follow a few basic principles when running the practice. They are to do the right thing, do the best you can, and show people that you care. Michael is a hands on advisor who takes great pleasure in running the business, delegating responsibilities to staff, and providing expert guidance to retirees and individuals who are fast approaching retirement. He is committed to providing clients with conservative investment strategies that will help fund a better standard of living during retirement. Just like his clients, Michael believes in the work ethic and knows how important it is to preserve hard-earned dollars. He started his career in the financial services industry in 1986, branching out to form his own company three years later. Since that time, he has had the privilege of meeting with over 2,500 people who are nearing retirement or already enjoying it. Michael is a State Registered Investment Advisor and Licensed Insurance Professional. Since opening his own firm over 20 years ago, Michael has been on a mission to protect client's capital. Unlike many advisors whom he thinks are mentally stuck in the 1990s with aggressive strategies, Michael specializes in conservative strategies that are likely to provide a steady and reliable return. Michael is literally always on the move. He took up running 18 years ago and has since completed numerous full and half marathons. Physical fitness and fiscal fitness are both of crucial importance to him.

Gar Urette, CFA has over 35 years of financial services and industry experience with a focus on asset allocation, portfolio management, and planning for his clients. Mr. Urette's clients include high-net-worth individuals, corporate executives, trusts, corporations, and 401(k) plans. He works with his clients to build and customize diverse strategies suited to their specific risk tolerance and consistent with their short- and long-term goals, using a range of asset classes that include fixed income, equities, foreign investments, real estate, and alternatives. Gar also has significant experience in serving people in the process of divorce. Gar started Garrison Asset Management after serving as the President of the National Development Bank of the Republic of Palau. After almost a decade of working with Wall St. firms managing a billion dollars in assets, Gar Urette accepted a life-changing position as the President of the National Development Bank of the Republic of Palau. Arriving in Palau in the late 1990s, he was surprised to find that the local population had no access to traditional investments. CDs and savings accounts through local banks were their only investment options. Mr. Urette saw how much this limited the local populaces ability to grow wealth, save for retirement, create capital to start a business or fund a college education for their children. In short, the lack of investment options limited the development of the Country and its people. To correct this, Gar started Garrison Asset Management (GAM) to provide an opportunity to access basic diversified mutual funds from some of the largest US-based mutual fund companies. Today GAM's services have expanded greatly beyond mutual fund distribution in Micronesia. GAM expanded to provide financial planning and investment management on a fee-only basis according to the fiduciary standard set by the CFA Institute. Utilizing Fidelity's Wealth Central, MorningStar Office, and Bond Trader Pro, GAM now provides a full range of planning and portfolio management services. On the personal side, The Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center and Producers Group have both benefited from Garrison Urette serving on the Board of Directors. He was in the Leadership Tampa Class of 2010 and is actively involved in Make-A-Wish, the Audubon Society, and Tampa Theater. He was also a three-time Masters National Champion in Olympic Sprint Kayaks. Garrison Urette holds a Bachelor of Science in Quantitative Methods of Business from the University of Florida, Masters in Business Administration from the University of Tampa, and is a CFA® Charterholder. Also, his work has been published in the professional journal Monograph and quoted in the Handbook of Fixed Income Securities by Frank J. Fabozzi.

About Garrison Asset Management, Inc.

We are a fee-only Registered Investment Adviser headquartered in Tampa, Florida serving clients nationwide (from Florida to Hawaii). We provide financial planning and investment management services according to fiduciary standards set by the CFA Institute with no hidden fees. Unlike large corporate financial institutions whose first responsibility is to their shareholders, our first responsibility is to our clients. We put our clients first and do what is right for them. We do not hold back advice or adjust our recommendations to make a sale or retain assets. We believe in advising our clients in how best to accomplish their goals and dreams even if it means losing them as a client.

Will you retire well? You know, the kind of retirement we all dream of. Having enough money so you can spend every day like a vacation & feeling like you finally have time to sit back and enjoy life again. Many high-level professionals have work, travel, and family responsibilities that crowd out proper management of finances. This makes planning for retirement nearly impossible. Its on your mind, but you keep pushing it off because youre content with your current financial situation. Sure youre getting, by but are you thriving? We offer a complimentary consultation that will help you look at your finances holistically and make sure you are getting the most out of your investments, have a solid plan for retirement, and have a legacy planned for your loved ones. I have retired with my clients hundreds of times and I would be happy to guide you to a successful retirement.

Glenn Cummings has been in the financial services industry for more than 25 years. Glenn founded Big Financial Services so he and his wife, Paula, could remain independent. He explains, "Because were not captive to a big-name money management corporation who dictates products, we have the advantage of being able to choose the best products based on your needs  not the bottom line of an investment company."Glenns focus is working with retirees, and those about to retire, who want to help protect their investments from downside risk. His strategy in terms of retirement planning is to manage investments and assets so that longevity risk, or the risk of running out of money during retirement, is mitigated for his clients. And of course, tax planning, estate planning and Social Security planning all factor into his holistic approach.

About Big Financial Services, LLC

At Big Financial Services, we believe everyone should be able to live the retirement theyve always wanted. Our team of professionals can help you create a well-thought-out strategy, using a variety of investments and insurance products and services, to help you address your financial needs and concerns.

Matthew gained a unique experience since 1998 in serving as an advisor and director of a major wirehouse, a private bank and now in his advisor-owned firm, Ethos Private Wealth. Growing up in Annapolis, MD, Matthew has always had an entrepreneurial spirit and curiosity for the complex. After selling a business he founded in the 1990s, and witnessing a family member be financially exploited, he felt that he could make a difference to some folks. He joined Merrill Lynch in 1998. Those were days that training and development were especially demanding, it was somewhat of a financial boot camp. Only roughly 1-2% of new hires would succeed after 3 years. Matthew had a successful career at Merrill for more than a decade and became a visiting coach for the firm in Princeton, NJ. However, he became disenchanted with the Wall Street affiliation after the 2008 financial crisis. That was the impetus for a personal and professional reflection. Matthew moved to a Private Banks in an executive role, but still felt a disingenuous connection between a major firm and the client. As Matthew's long-time clients continued to reach out to him, he established a private firm to provide investment counsel and wealth strategies to a small number of successful and kind families. Thus, Ethos was born from a set of guiding and unwavering principles. Matthew is passionate and serious about his responsibility to those he serves, and has been an advocate on many occasions for his clients. He is patient, thoughtful and creative in helping clients. Matthew is a former triathlete and is known for his love of both art and science, his family projects and community building. He is also a published author of children's books. Matthew's hallmark is helping others to be more& both personally and professionally. Matthew currently lives in Miami, FL with his Brazilian wife and two children. One child attends middle-school and the other served in the U.S. Army and currently attends college and serves in the National Guard.

In May of 2010, Rey Descalso left a large wirehouse to create a firm that would help his clients without call centers, proprietary products or the legacy liabilities of large Wall Street firms. He feels his experience in 2008 was a defining moment that guides him to this day: As an industry, we were not well-prepared for the credit crisis on many levels. We did not have appropriate risk management in place for the needs of many clients. This went beyond the pure numbers and drawdowns. We were not well-equipped to handle the emotional hardship many clients faced when everyone thought the financial world was crashing down around them. So, educating clients about risk management has become one of my most important priorities. Mr. Descalso has lived in the Central Florida area for most his life and attended Forest Lake Academy in Apopka. He received a Bachelors Degree in Theology at Southern Adventist University in 1997 and a Master of Divinity Degree from Andrews Theological Seminary in 1999. He and Rebecca, his wife of over 20 years, have a mischievous daughter, Olivia. All three of them enjoy Disney cruises and time at the beach.

Financial Freedom provides Fee-Only Wealth Management Services which includes comprehensive financial planning and investment management services. OUR PRIMARY OBJECTIVE IS TO HELP OUR CLIENTS ACHIEVE THEIR LIFE GOALS AND OBJECTIVES. Unlike many planners, we are Fee-Only Financial Planners. Fee-only planners are compensated solely on the basis of fees paid by their clients and do not accept any commissions or compensation from any other sources. This form of compensation should provide you with a high-level of confidence that you are receiving objective recommendations. Additionally, when working with clients on an on-going basis, we do so utilizing a flat retainer arrangement versus any percentage of assets under management formula. Each year we provide our clients with a Wealth Management Services performance evaluation review. We think that it is important that each client is able to evaluate the overall value that our retainer relationship adds to the achievement of their life goals and objectives. Our business strategy is to maintain a small firm focused on developing in-depth personal relationships with a small number of client families versus a cursory relationship with hundreds of clients. The Osgoods are the firm; they do the analysis and investing; they meet with you wherever you live; you won't be turned over to someone else once you become a client. We are seeking prospective new clients with a minimum of $1 million of investable assets. Check out our website at www.finfree.com for more information.
