    So much we want to share with you.


    Sharing our thoughts with you.

    Empire Wealth Strategies is so fortunate to have a team of dedicated advisors and executive team leaders with expertise in a wide range of Financial Planning topics. Sometimes they are featured in the news, in magazines and on television discussing important financial concepts as well as announcements about their community involvement in the tri-state area. Empire Wealth Strategies shares updates about the company, events, and relevant information we feel our clients and our community want to know about. 


    Our social media presence is more than just a call for clients to follow us. It is our chance to tell the stories that we come across on a daily basis, whether that is a family that was able to keep their home because of a life insurance policy or a couple who is able to set a course across country in an RV because they planned for their retirement. We look forward to sharing those moments with you.

    In the Financial Services industry today, individuals have the chance to work with a variety of financial professionals. What sets our advisors apart is we start with the why. Why do they make the decision to do what they do every day? Why did they come into Financial Services industry? Everyone has a story, advisor and client, and we want to share those with you.

    Ryan Clark, Financial Advisor “When I first thought about transitioning into this industry, I sat with my parents to get their advice. They were both reluctant to the idea. I then asked them how they look in regards to retirement. My mom admitted that if she had spoken to a financial adviser 25 years ago, she would be in a much better position. After hearing that, I have made it my mission to speak to young professionals and families early enough in their careers to educate them on making sound financial decisions so that they can have the freedom and flexibility they deserve in their retirement years.”
    Claire Gallagher, Financial Representative “My why is important to me as I watched first hand my dad lose an investment to his retirement and also witness my cousin go through a terminal illness which caused huge life changes and I feel that it is my purpose to educate and help people to have a foundation in place and to give them peace of mind. ”
    Sammy Schiff, Financial Advisor “I realize success when my clients are able to financially live worry free, soundly sleep at night, experience the journey of life while enjoying the trip and know when they reach their final destination their legacy will be as planned, appreciated and protect their family. ”
