Scott Bird

As a financial advisor, Scott is dedicated to helping individuals plan to reach their financial goals by developing investment plans around their long-term goals and risk tolerance. My 16 years of experience in financial services enables me to help my client’s structure balanced portfolios to address their specific financial goals. My extensive experience has taught me how to prepare for major shifts in the markets. Making sure your wealth continues to work in support of the goals you have established takes careful planning. Such planning is not a single event – it is a process. As your life circumstances change, so must the investment strategies I use to stay on course toward meeting your objectives. That is why I work with you, one on one, to design investment strategies targeted to your specific needs and goals. Contact me if you’d like me to help you develop strategies for pursuing your financial goals.
