Addressing Today's Retirement Challenges
Retirement has vastly changed over the years, particularly since the most recent recession. Your grandparents and parents likely relied on pensions, private savings, and Social Security to create a stable income for retirement. Today, there is an increasing burden on individuals and families to ensure their assets last through their retirement. These changes require new retirement strategies.
My name is Ryan Presley and I am an independent LPL Financial Advisor specializing in retirement planning strategies. I work closely with individuals, couples, and families as they prepare for one of life’s biggest transitions. Serving as clients’ retirement guide, I assist clients with a number of services that revolve around developing a steady and consistent income, preserving savings and investments, determining appropriate insurance options, evaluating estate planning needs, and more.
In today’s challenging economic environment, it’s critical to have a retirement strategy in place. I strive to provide the retirement guidance each client needs, create personalized strategies, unbiased recommendations, and education on the latest investment opportunities and financial laws and regulations. Based in Fort Smith, Arkansas, I serve clients in Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Virginia.
