The Spivak Financial Group

Welcome to The Spivak Financial Group

Here at The Spivak Financial Group, we are truly independent Financial Advisors with 40-plus years of combined financial planning experience. Our certifications and licenses allow us to offer a broad array of financial solutions. We work with respected investment and insurance providers to help you achieve your financial goals and objectives.

We understand that retirees face many important decisions that can affect their long-term financial success. 1Some of these decisions revolve around making investments that will help create a hedge against outliving their income as a result of the impact of inflation, taxation, and rising healthcare costs. 2Because over ninety percent of our clients are retirees with similar concerns, we are in a good position to approach such challenges with experience and skills.

   



1Investing involves risk including the potential loss of principal.  No investment strategy can guarantee a profit or protect against a loss in periods of declining values.
