Messina's Wealth Management
"You Earn It. We Protect It."
Founder & President
Nick Messina: A financial professional licensed for over 27 years, his experience includes affiliations with broker-dealers and a Registered Investment Advisory firm. Nick decided to become a financial professional to offer his clients the very best products offered by various financial institutions he is appointed with, each of whom is, in Nick’s experience, among the best available leaders in their respective fields. The focus of most of his clients is to protect their hard-earned savings by purchasing products protecting from market declines and providing them with income that they cannot outlive. For his RIA clients, recognizing and weighing risk vs. reward for his client’s investment portfolios is his foremost goal. Nick is a fiduciary and has the responsibility to always act in the best interest of his clients. His philosophy, “Safety First, A Reasonable Rate of Return over time, and Keeping it Simple,” is a strategy that has served his clients well through the volatile years of economic upheaval and world events.
