We Believe:

  • Our first job is to help you build your “financial roadmap.”
  • You should only do business with people whom you like, trust, and feel are capable and confident in their abilities.
  • It is not our job to tell you how much risk you “should” take with your dollars, but help you realize your current level of risk.
  • There is more to investing than just stocks, bonds, and mutual funds.
  • That actual safety is different than perceived safety.
  • In reducing risk.
  • In identifying and reducing hidden and unnecessary fees.
  • In increasing tax efficient cash flow.

What Makes Us Different

Principal protection has and will always be the primary goal at Wayne Messmer & Associates. This asset class has helped some of our more risk-averse clients limit the downside returns of the market while still participating in the upside.

Life Insurance

Life insurance does not need to be a part of everyone’s estate plan but it can be useful. Furthermore, if you have an older policy, it may be a good time to get it reviewed to use the cash values to reduce payments or stop them altogether.
