Welcome to Encore Wealth Management

At Encore Wealth Management we have always believed that making good investment decisions, even through very difficult periods, must start with a confident and intellectually well-founded commitment to a sensible, rational set of investment beliefs, diversification and analysis not emotion to make decisions.  Our approach is grounded in hard work and fundamental research.

We are committed to helping our clients plan for their financial security by identifying their financial goals, creating a viable strategy and modifying that strategy as market conditions and client needs change over time.  We work hard to be your trusted advisor when faced with those critical financial decisions.
