The Gary Talosi Team
Senior Financial Planner
You have handled money since your first paper route or your first babysitting job. But that doesn’t mean that what you have been doing all these years has been the best you could have done with your financial resources. That’s why it helps to get the advice of an experienced professional whom you can trust, and with whom you can feel comfortable. Gary Talosi has been helping families in the Niagara Peninsula for over thirty years, and he welcomes the opportunity to earn the right to help you and your loved ones also.
It starts by being a good listener. Gary will ask you about the details of your current situation – not just the financial numbers, but about your family, your hobbies, your job, your plans, your goals, your concerns, and your “bucket list.” Then Gary will give you a chance to ask any questions you might have, including his background, his experience, his office team, and how he gets paid. A next appointment will be set up, at which time you can ask more questions and Gary will give you a summary of your current situation and his short term and long term recommendations. Only then do you decide if you want to set up another meeting to proceed. There is no cost, pressure, or obligation.
Gary was born and raised in Welland, and has lived and worked in south Niagara all of his life. Gary and Angie have been happily married for over forty-five years. They have two daughters and a son, all of whom are married. They have been blessed with three grandsons aged 15 to 17. Family is very important to Angie and Gary.
Gary is committed to contributing to the communities in which he lives and works.
