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.

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.

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.
