Gary Busch is a NAPFA-Registered Financial Advisor.
NAPFA is the country's leading association of Fee Only Financial Planners.
What is "Fee Only Financial Planning," and why is it important?
Gary Busch is the founder and principal of Busch Financial Planning, an independent financial advisory firm located in suburban Houston that offers objective financial advice … by the hour … as you need it.
Financial Planning is a discipline which integrates all areas of personal finance, including planning for education, retirement, investment, taxes, insurance, and your estate. Gary works with individuals and families to help them define their financial goals and develop strategies for reaching those goals.
Busch Financial Planning operates much like a dentist or accountant’s practice. Clients call or visit when they have a need, and they pay for the time spent working on their specific situation. There are no long-term contracts or retainer agreements. This hourly fee approach gives you the flexibility to schedule just a financial check-up and/or get a second opinion, if that is all you need. Furthermore, as a Fee-Only financial planner, Gary’s compensation comes only from his clients. He does not accept commissions from the sale of insurance, investments, or any other products. This truly independent structure allows him to give high level, professional advice without any conflicts of interest.
Gary is a member of The Garrett Planning Network, Inc., an international affiliation of professional, Fee-Only financial advisors. Gary and fellow network members are dedicated to providing independent, objective financial advice to people from all walks of life, not just the affluent. Garrett members do not require their clients to have either a minimum income or a minimum net worth.
Gary had a highly successful career working in information technology for a major energy company for almost 30 years, most of it in management. During his years of managing multi-million dollar budgets in the corporate world, Gary learned the importance of understanding client needs and effectively allocating resources to help them meet their goals, much like personal financial planning. He also sees his practice as an opportunity to make a more direct and visible impact on people’s lives.
Gary holds an MBA degree along with a BA/BS in mathematics. He earned the right to use the CFP® mark of distinction (and to call himself a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional) from the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards.
Besides being a part of the Garrett Planning Network, he is also a member of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA), the nation’s premier organization of comprehensive Fee-Only advisors. Additionally he holds membership in the Financial Planning Association (FPA), the largest organization of professionals dedicated to championing the financial planning process.
Gary and his wife Sheryl are active members of Calvary Community Church, where Sheryl is Children’s Pastor, and Gary leads small group studies on Biblical financial principles. They have a daughter in graduate school.
Gary offers a complimentary “get-acquainted” meeting, which can be conducted in person or by phone. Please call or email to set up an appointment today. As your trusted advisor, Gary can help you make wise decisions for today and tomorrow.
