Finding the Balance Retirement and Quality of Life Behavioral Finance 4 Elements of an Estate Strategy

My Business Philosophy

With over forty years of experience in the financial industry, Thomas H. Allison with Allison Financial Services, understands that as financially concerned Americans you are constantly faced with questions about your current and future financial wellbeing. Today, there are many economic challenges that can have a serious effect on the quality of your life, both now and in the future, which can also have an effect on your children and grandchildren. Americans are living longer, and one of biggest risks Americans face today is that they will “out live“ their hard earned savings or impoverish themselves due to an unexpected event. It is of upmost importance that Americans realize the value of wealth accumulation, risk management and preservation of capital. This understanding requires you to invest a small amount of time and a commitment to learn. Our goal is to lessen the financial uncertainty of your life, accumulate and preserve your wealth. 

Addressing your financial affairs can often seem like a daunting task filled with stress and uncertainty. Through education, this task can be simplified so that stress and uncertainty are minimized. Using proper financial strategies, individuals may be able to identify the financial problems that concern most investors. 

Allison Financial Services is passionately committed to assisting its clients in answering complex financial questions and thus enabling them to be confident about their financial future and help them achieve financial security and independence.
