Most people have two major financial concerns regarding retirement: one is they don’t want to run out of money as they get older; the other is they don’t want to be so careful that they don’t enjoy the journey. Balancing the confidence of reaching financial goals while enjoying retirement is a key component of financial planning and investment management.

This is why the Armstrong Wealth Management Group has been dedicated to helping members of the Florence community and beyond grow and protect their wealth for more than two decades. Regi Armstrong, founder of the firm, celebrates 25 years of serving clients this May. The financial advisory practice is hosting an anniversary open house on Thursday, May 19, 2022. The community is invited to stop by, meet the team, and grab a bite to eat between 8:30 am and 5 pm. The celebration will continue from 5:30 pm to 7 pm with the Greater Florence Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours hosted at the Armstrong Wealth offices.

“We’re your neighbors,” the firm’s website boasts. “We raise our families, help our clients, and volunteer for causes we believe in right here.”  Over the years, when employees of McLeod Regional, MUSC Florence, Nucor, Sonoco, Farmer’s Telephone, Otis, GE, Duke Energy, and many other firms have sought a valued partner to help them prepare for and transition into retirement, Armstrong Wealth has been there. Their wealth managers develop customized retirement plans, manage investments, provide for insurance needs, and, most importantly, provide ongoing guidance to clients.

Headed by client wealth manager and partner Regi Armstrong, CPWA®, the firm’s collaborative team is comprised of financial professionals who bring a diverse mix of experience and educational backgrounds:

Armstrong Wealth’s mission is to help clients pursue their financial goals. “Our clients typically want to be good stewards of their assets, but generally lack time to do that,” Regi Armstrong shared. “I view my goal—and that of the entire firm—as partnering with our clients to help them reach their goals and enjoy their lives.”

Navigating to a confident retirement is more uncertain now than ever. Anxiety about money and retirement income is on the rise. With the cost of living going up continuously, sharp increases in healthcare and higher education expenses, changes in employment stability, and fluctuations in the markets, people often wonder if they are on the right track to achieve their goals.

You may find yourself wondering: Do I have enough to retire? Will I run out of money in retirement? When should I take Social Security? What happens if I face devastating medical bills? What kind of retirement accounts should I have? Where should I invest? How can I save on taxes? How do I keep track of all the tax law changes? The Armstrong Wealth team is committed to empowering clients with answers and guiding them every step of the way.
