    Nick A. Edwards, CFP®

    Nick Edwards is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Professional with over a decade of experience in navigating rough economic terrain. Nick specializes in retirement planning, portfolio design and advising small business owners in his local market. 

    There are few things he enjoys more than pouring over the vast menu of strategies available to today's investors. His goal is to identify which ones work and why they are successful, but he also enjoys finding the fatal flaws in those destined for failure. The information gleaned from his analysis is utilized to help strengthen his own client's portfolios and potentially steer consumers around the pitfalls inherent to many mainstream solutions. 

    Nick is guided by a philosophy that client education can help increase the odds of long-term success. This perspective was shaped by his observation of an expanding gap of trust between the public and an industry flooding the marketplace with products characterized by an unprecedented degree of complexity. To combat this distressing trend, he strives to deliver advice and recommendations at a level of comprehension attainable by even the most inexperienced investors. 

    His passion for equipping the public with the "essentials" of sound money principles is evidenced by a career-spanning resume of community outreach. Nick has produced live radio programs and podcasts, published newsletters and hosted numerous live presentations covering a broad range of financial topics.

    When it comes to managing client assets, Nick constructs dynamic strategies upon a foundational conviction that preventing catastrophic losses is far more important that risk-laden attempts to outperform the market year after year. He also wants to make sure clients can separate their true objectives from wishful fantasies, then employ as little risk as necessary to help reach their goals. 

    Nick entered the industry in 2001 and has spent his entire career at the Investment Management Group, enjoying the camaraderie and support of his close friends and family. When not feeding a compulsive hunger for financial data, he spends the remaining 51% of his time with his forgivingly patient wife, Christina, and his slightly less-patient daughters, Avery, Piper, Finley and Carsen.

    Nathan Edwards, CFA, CFP®

    Nathan is a CFA® charterholder and a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional. He is committed to the idea that establishing clearly defined financial objectives is the keystone of the financial planning process. With these objectives as the foundation for a viable financial plan, Nathan believes that it is possible to elevate one’s peace of mind and financial wellbeing both now and into the future. When he is not helping others achieve their financial goals, Nathan soaks up every moment that he is fortunate enough to spend in the company of his wife and son.

    Chad graduated from the University of Florida in 1998 with a bachelor's degree. In addition to holding a series 6 securities license, he has his life, health and annuity license. In his free time, Chad enjoys golfing, fishing, playing with his dog and going to sporting events. Go Gators!

    Nick M. Riscigno

    Nick graduated from Florida State University with degrees in Finance and Real Estate. Away from the office, he enjoys spending time with his wife Ann Marie and their 2 children, Nicholas and Madison. He coaches youth baseball, and watches both of the kids participate in many extracurricular activities. When there is any time left, he is also an avid sports fan and enjoys spending time in the gym and occasionally on the golf course.

    Nick has been with Investment Management Group since 2006. He works with individuals and small businesses utilizing various strategies and financial solutions to help meet their goals for retirement. He has been in a variety of financial related positions for most of his 22 professional years, including 5 years as a Financial Analyst and several as a Comptroller. He believes that his prior experiences dealing mainly with analyzing and making decisions with corporate funds were an ideal foundation for his career as a registered representative.

    Nick believes that the cornerstone of financial preparation is the recognition that everyone's economic and life situations are unique. This requires personalized service and the ability to match clients with the right financial products and services. He enjoys the process and challenge of being able to determine a client's needs and then to put a personalized portfolio together to best meet their needs.

    Some of the areas that Nick has spent time helping clients with include: starting a new job, changing jobs, dealing with layoffs/unemployment, starting a family, buying a home, education and retirement preparation, estate planning, small business retirement plans, inheritance, loss of spouse/significant other and divorce.
