About Assurity Financial Group

Established in 2002, Assurity Financial Group is a family run financial firm that specializes in Life, Wealth, Retirement and Taxes. Our #1 goal for our clients is financial independence!
Many clients seek our services because we offer credentialed help with diverse backgrounds in all areas of finance. As a credentialed Financial Planning and Registered Investment Advisory Firm we can help you to grow wealth and set a course that covers all aspects which exceed traditional Financial Planning.
As fiduciaries over our clients' managed accounts, we don't use high fee proprietary funds. We are independent, but highly regulated. We are proficient in health insurance issues, estate planning, expert advice in wills and trusts. We have a full service tax practice with credentialed EAs and CPA's, so we can offer tax strategies that reduce taxes for our clients. Your number one expense is taxes! That is why we offer tax forecasting to reduce current and future taxation. We offer a diverse array of tax preferred investments to help compound earnings in your portfolio. If safety is your concern, we offer retirement accounts with safer investment options or insured options that offer gains that can average between 5%-10% with little or no risk. For the self-employed we are able to provide pension planning for high income business owners who are being hit hard by excessive taxation. We only offer registered products and utilize a subsidiary of Wells Fargo for custody of assets. Most other retirement products are with highly established insured institutions.
