Whether it is replacing your income, paying off your debts, or setting up a legacy plan, the experienced professionals at Vancea Financial will build a plan that is tailored to your individual circumstances. We help you identify the risks that could affect their financial well-being and then develop a strategy that covers all the bases.

2Building Wealth and Wealth Management

Building wealth requires a lifelong financial planning strategy that changes as your needs change. It requires a relationship built on trust between you and your financial advisor. Unlike some organizations that are focused on bringing in as many clients as possible, Vancea Financial believes in matching you to the right financial advisor. Then we begin the process of building a long-term relationship based on trust.

We provide you with a comprehensive set of wealth building and wealth management services ranging from identifying personal risk factors that may negatively impact your financial security, debt reduction and management strategies, investment and tax-reduction planning, and investment portfolios and retirement planning.

3Living Benefits

No one likes to think about being incapacitated by an accident or a devastating illness, but the reality is that you must be prepared for any eventuality. A loss of one or the sole income in a household can have devastating effects on those who rely on you for their financial well-being. Accidents and illnesses can not only result in the loss of income, but in additional unanticipated medical bills.

Don’t get caught unprepared! Vancea Financial’s advisors can introduce you to products designed to allow you to maintain dignity in the face of difficult choices, including options for speed and quality of treatment, insurance protection, and other practical services to help during a difficult time.

6Business Owner Strategies

The way you protect your business is just as important as the reputation you have built for it. In many ways, your business forms an important part of your personal legacy. Are you confident that you have identified and planned for all the potential risks that may face your business over the short and long term?

Vancea Financial takes a different approach than most financial services providers. We work with you to identify the risks that could threaten the profitability of your business, and then work with you to help ensure you have the products and services to prepare for those risks.

Our approach represents a successful mix of strategy, business acumen and most importantly, the right team members. Safeguard your assets through succession planning strategies with a focus on insurance and pension plans, tax-reduction strategies, and recruitment and retention.

I have worked with Brian Cressman for more than 20 years. I have found him extremely dedicated to his clients, and very keen to provide knowledgable and tailored advice. He is not the typical "agent" or "planner", in that he puts you first. My wife and I appreciate all his guidance and help through these years. He lives hours away, but I wouldn't change him for anything.
