Anthony J. Searcy
As a caring and experienced financial advisor, I am committed to the tradition of exemplary client service established at Signature Financial Group, LLC. I approach my relationship with clients as the person who helps free them from the details of investing such as risk management. This allows my clients to focus on the other aspects of life such as family and career.
I believe the client comes first, which is what led me to join Signature Financial Group in 2008, because it aligns with their philosophy. I am proud to work for a firm that supports a strong advisor/client relationship. I specialize in retirement planning, helping people to prepare for retirement, as well as showing those who are already retired how to be more effective in their investments.
My wife Rebecca and I reside in University Heights. I served as board chairman for Cleveland Catholic Charity Social Services, (Parma Dale), currently on the Board of Cleveland Catholic Charity. I also have the honor of serving on the board at Benedictine High School Endowment Fund and Joseph House, a member of the Sister of Charity Health.
