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 want to take a moment to introduce you to my family; my wife Ana, and our children Sofia and Adam. Like all of my clients, family is also my most valued asset. My personal and professional choices reflect not only the values I had growing up, but also my discipline as a pilot and officer in the United States Air Force, my dedication as a father and husband, and my devotion as a trusted financial professional. I care about the process of helping people achieve success, the significance of their desired life and financial outcomes, and the life-altering consequences of not protecting against risk. As a pilot and officer in the USAF, I learned many lessons that I now apply to my personal and professional life. The military stresses a value system that puts family, country, and others before self. It teaches people to lead, not just to follow. These are all great lessons that I continue to respect and follow.
