Welcome and thank you for visiting my web site!
I’m Paul Nolan, a financial advisor helping people manage their accumulated wealth from an office in Fort Myers, Florida.
At one time or another managing money has been daunting for many people; everything seems so expensive, helping with children's needs and grandchildren's education unexpected, just trying to stretch accumulated wealth to last a lifetime stressful, saving enough to live "the golden retirement years" comfortably challenging, and if possible leaving a small legacy for family and/or charitable causes beyond achievability. Taking the mystery out of financial issues, overcoming client's unique financial challenges, is my role. I help clients pursing their personal goals and objectives so they can happily devote time to whatever they find worthwhile and rewarding.
Clients of my practice, the wealthy and those budgeting carefully, tap into a large volume of financial knowledge. My professional credentials earned during a lifetime of continuing education and 54 years of experience focused on all manner of financial issues, assure you of a high level of expertise and significant financial acumen, utilized as needed to benefit every client. Also the resources of a respected broker/dealer H. D. Vest Investment Services SM* are available for clients.
For those interested I've published this web site and included information; about me, my friend David and my wife Doris, the two people that work with me, and a profile of our boutique practice. Extract whatever information you find helpful from the financial articles and useful calculators on this site.
Personal attention is provided to each client, and I take pride in every client's financial success. Please allow me to welcome you as a client, we will care for you and your money.
*These services are offered by Paul Nolan through his affiliation with HD Vest Investment Services SM, Member SIPC, and HD Vest Advisory Services.
