As a fee-only financial planner, my focus is to offer unbiased financial advice to help travelers achieve the life they want in retirement. - David Tuzzolino, CFA®, CFP®

Fee-Only financial planner located in Pittsburgh, PA, serving clients locally and across the country

David Tuzzolino, CFA, CFP® is the founder of PathBridge Financial a fee-only, financial advisor based in Pittsburgh, PA. The firm specializes in providing comprehensive financial planning and investment management services for clients over 50 years old who love to travel. Clients never pay a commission of any kind and will always be provided with unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.

I created PathBridge Financial after spending over twenty years with BNY Mellon and JP Morgan. My goal – create a financial advisory firm that caters to the needs of travelers who are preparing for retirement.

Why? Let’s start with planning for retirement. It is a crucial step in life and there are many pitfalls where a little financial guidance can make a life-changing difference. I wanted to work closely with a small number of clients and be instrumental in helping them gain financial freedom.

I fell in love with traveling during my first European trip. The sites were incredible and the food was delicious, but it was the people I met along the way that had the biggest impact. Locals, certainly, but also fellow travelers – adventurous, empathetic, curious, and independent.

Is this you?

Are you concerned about running out of money in retirement? Do you often wonder how you’re going to pay for health care? These are common issues faced by all of us and made even more complicated when planning a life filled with rewarding but potentially expensive travel.

I have created a firm that goes beyond the typical financial planning process. I cover common retirement concerns such as saving enough money, keeping taxes low, acquiring affordable health care, and managing investments wisely. But I also dive deeply into how these issues uniquely affect travelers.

Have you outlined in detail the travel life you want both before and after retirement? Have you incorporated these additional expenses into your retirement planning projections? Did you know Medicare won’t cover you when you’re traveling internationally? What type of insurance will pay for an expensive medical evacuation from another country? Together we will answer these questions and plan for the future you desire.

PathBridge Financial is a fee-only firm that never receives commissions or sales incentives. All initial consultations are complimentary.  Thank you for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you.
