Giordano Cummings Financial

Giordano Cummings Financial is an independent financial services firm committed to providing independent investment advice in the core areas of financial planning.

Our Services

Retirement planning is growing increasingly complicated.  At Giordano Cummings Financial, we make it our business to sort out the complexities of pensions, retirement plans, and Social Security.  Our experience, paired with our focus on education, allows us the ability to help our clients plot out a course for retirement.  We help manage the details for accuracy and timeliness so that the transition is smooth and less stressful.

Wealth Management

Let us formulate a wealth management plan that provides key elements to help you meet your personal goals and objectives. We believe in building personal and long term relationships with our clients while we manage their portfolios.

Social Security Planning

As a critical source of retirement income, social security can be complicated as many individuals don’t have a full understanding of the choices they may have.  Issues of taxes and family benefits can add to that complexity.  Let us help you understand your options and how that figures into your overall financial plan.

Life Insurance

Insurance is an essential part of any sound financial plan. It transfers the risk of life events from you to the insurance company and can help protect your family from the financial consequences of those events.  A proper strategy can include personal insurance, liability insurance, and life insurance.

Retirement Planning

Whether you are just getting a start to investing, or you have been saving for years, we can help you with sound financial planning advice.  We can help you establish retirement income goals, identify sources of income, manage assets and help mitigate risk so that you can enjoy retirement.

Retirement Income Planning

Regardless of where you might be in life, or investing for that matter, we can leverage our years of experience to help you gain financial independence and shape a retirement plan that creates enough income so that you don’t outlive your money.

Business Planning

Let us help you feel confident that you have looked at the future of your business and chosen a path that will allow you to preserve the independence and control that you have built over the years.
