Education Funding and Planning

An education planning strategy can be the greatest gift you ever give your child or grandchild. It could offset escalating tuition costs and can provide tax benefits. We have been helping clients save and invest for college for more than 17 years. Call now and start paving a road to opportunity for your child. The sooner you start, the better.

Think Ahead:

Developing a plan for higher education is critical as tuition rises at about 8 percent a year, according to FinAid.com. Student loans can be a tremendous burden to your child long after he or she graduates. Education planning helps lift that burden by allowing you to plan for college years in advance. It is easy to set up and can fit into almost any budget. Certain programs provide future tuition at today's prices and hefty tax breaks. Is there a better investment than your child's future?

Because You Can't Count on a Scholarship our advisors offer comprehensive education planning services. We will show you exactly how much you need to set aside for your child's post-secondary schooling. Take advantage of strategies that can put you way ahead of the game. It is a fundamental part of the total investment services we provide for clients at every income level.

Money Management

What is your investment approach? Ours is simple. We create a long-term plan just for you and manage your risk. How we achieve this is simple, too: We aim to be your most trusted wealth advisor through loyalty, hard work and relationships with professional resources. Call today and let's look at where you are financially and where you want to be.

From the beginning, Geisbauer Wealth Management has been an independent firm. That means we are beholden to no financial product provider. We don't feel pressure to steer you toward investments that might not be a good fit for you. In a advisory relationship we work on a single flat fee that depends of the size of your account. The larger your account value, the lower the rate tends to be, making more of your money work for you. That is a core value of our investment approach.

We can't promise a rate of return on an account simply because no one can. The market is outside of our control. But our overall investment approach is aimed at risk management, and we strive for this goal in everything we do.

Portfolio Management
