Investment Answers is an independently owned financial planning and investment advisory firm made up of fiduciaries.
Because we are independently owned, and not captive agents, that means we work directly for you. Independent advisors don’t have quotas they have to meet. We can offer you a variety of financial options based on your needs, from financial institutions that we have vetted on your behalf.
We are Investment Advisor Representatives and Certified Financial Planners™ (CFP®). Both are licenses and certifications designed specifically to help protect you, the investor.
In order to obtain the CFP® certification, advisors must succeed under the industry’s most academically rigorous testing and pass advanced security vetting.
CFP’s have access to significantly more educational opportunities and resources than advisors who have not reached this advanced level of certification and experience.
Because we are also dually licensed, we can offer both insurances and investments as options for you. Being dually licensed allows us the knowledge, flexibility and acumen to create a financial road map personalized for your unique needs.
Allow us to leverage the benefits of risk management, opportunity for growth, lifetime income planning and wealth transfer as we plan for your future.
You want financial peace of mind. We understand.
There is an art and science to creating Income for Life, especially after you’ve retired and you’re not receiving a wage any longer. Remember, a retiree’s lifestyle is determined by their income, not their assets.
At Investment Answers we take a personal approach to designing your retirement income. With money, it’s not how much you make, it’s how much you keep. We leverage our complete portfolio of investment and insurance tools to help our clients articulate their goals and create plans that help them to live the life they had envisioned in retirement.
There are methods of investing that allow you to enjoy a return on your savings without having to place yourself in an uncertain financial situation.
Having a portfolio with minimal to no risk does not mean you have to give up the potential for gains. At Investment Answers, we can show you strategies to help take advantage of market-linked returns with little to no risk inside of your retirement plan.
We offer a multitude of financial strategies for our clients.

- CDs/Index CDs
