Why Choose PathBridge Financial?

Hi, my name is David Tuzzolino and I believe gaining financial independence is one of the greatest accomplishments you can achieve in your life. It gives you the opportunity to live life on your own terms, eliminating the stress that can occur without a well-developed plan. Your first step is to choose an advisor with the right attributes.

Specialist – By focusing on clients within 15 years of retirement, I can deliver customized solutions to issues that specifically affect this group.

Experience – Over the last 20+ years in the financial industry, I’ve witnessed the market’s euphoric highs and it’s great-recession lows. When the next market upheaval occurs, be sure your financial advisor has already weathered a storm or two.

Transparency – My pricing is straightforward and easy to understand, displayed here on my website. I am a fee-only advisor, which means I don’t receive commissions for selling you a product. The price of my services will be presented to you in writing before any work begins.

Fiduciary – What is a fiduciary duty? It simply means I always act in my client’s best interest, guided by the CFP Board’s Code of Ethics. Not every financial advisor is held to these high standards. Make certain the one you choose is.
