Gone are the days where a financial advisor just manages your investment portfolio. For many years, the financial services industry was only concerned with how much wealth they can manage for a client. Overlooked is the crucial role that Medicare planning, maximizing Social Security benefits and Legacy Planning play in a client’s ability to lead a happy and healthy financial retirement. Vincent recognizes this and has committed the team at Innovative Wealth Management to changing the way traditional wealth management relationships function.

By coordinating your Social Security and Medicare planning, Vincent and his team take care of all aspects of your retirement support. Vincent specializes in client-centered wealth management, taking the time to get to know your values and your goals — and identifying the right moves for your specific life and circumstances. Vincent is committed to your stress-free golden years and strives to help you have a clear understanding of your financial details.

Vincent brings a breadth of financial services experience to his role. He has been a financial advisor for over two decades. Before founding Innovative Wealth Management, Vincent was a producer and designated principle at Bankers Life Securities, where he supervised over 20 financial advisors, helping them learn and grow as professionals while building their practices. 

Currently, Vincent resides in Trumbull, CT with his wife, Lisa, who he has been married to for 18 years. Together, they love to watch their children (Matthew, 17 and Madison, 15) participate in sports. Matthew plays Varsity ice hockey for Trumbull HS, and Madison is a Varsity cheerleader and is on the competition team for Trumbull HS. Each year, the family volunteers to help raise money for the Alzheimer's Association.
