Senior Financial Planner
When you’re mapping out your financial future, it helps to have an experienced professional with whom you feel comfortable and whom you can trust.
Steve Talosi Jr. of Optimize Wealth in Welland has been that friendly professional to generations of south Niagara residents.
With over 44 years of business and financial industry experience, Steve continues to find satisfaction in helping people achieve their financial goals.
The whole idea of having a financial strategy isn’t just buying an investment, a GIC or contributing $2,000 to an RRSP. It’s about helping people assess where they are, determine where they want to go, and coming up with a plan for how to get there. You can talk about retiring early… that’s wonderful, but how are you going to do it? What’s your road map? “That’s where Steve can help you by guiding you. You’ll talk about what you want: when you would like to retire, what kind of income you would like to have when you retire, and Steve will do his best to help you make that happen.”
Steve believes strongly in giving back to his community which supports his business as is demonstrated through his community ties. Born and raised in Welland, Steve is past president and an active member of the Notre Dame Family Board of Directors, treasurer of Development and Peace for the Dioceses of St. Catharines, and a member of the teaching panel for the Marriage Preparation Course at St. Kevin’s parish. He formerly served as treasurer of Wesley Robins Retirement Village’s Board of Directors, and as a Board member of the Welland Downtown BIA.
As a devoted family person, Steve and his wife of 44 years, Rita, have raised three, now adult, children and thoroughly enjoy their two grandchildren.
Steve’s contributions to his church and community have made his a familiar face to families throughout Welland. He notes when it comes to getting advice on your personal finances, it’s nice to be able to turn to someone you know and trust.
“We don’t take that trust lightly. If you come through our door, whether you’re our biggest client or somebody we’ve never seen before, we’re going to do the best job we can for you from day one.”
Whether you need help filing your tax return, getting the best rate available on a GIC or planning for retirement, Steve, supported by his very competent assistant, Danielle Frost and Lisa Furry, can offer you the expertise and enthusiasm you deserve.
