Scott Vance is a Holly Springs, NC fee-only financial planner. Trisuli Financial Advising provides comprehensive, ongoing financial planning and investment management to help fellow veterans organize, grow and protect their assets through life’s transitions.

Scott Vance began his career in the financial industry soon after retiring from the Army, where he spent 23 years of his life. His military background provides him with great insight into the issues faced by soldiers and veterans, however, he’s happy to help people from all walks of life. Scott is currently an Enrolled Agent and a CFP®.
Scott was born and raised in Pennsylvania. Throughout his childhood, high-school and college years, he spent time working at his parents’ small business, assisting with bookkeeping and other responsibilities. This is where his love for finances began.
Scott and his wife, Amy, live in Holly Springs, NC. Together, they have a son, Brandon. As a family, they love to ski in the winter and go kayaking, biking and SCUBA diving in the summer. The highlight of his overseas experiences as a military veteran was a year spent in Kathmandu, Nepal advising the U.S. Ambassador to Nepal on foreign military training.
We are a fee only firm specializing in the planning needs of military members. We are prior service former members of the military and have experienced the issues faced by military members and so have a thorough understanding of those situations.
My specialty in taxes enables me to uncover military-specific savings that often go overlooked. As a fee-only, independent advisor, I pride myself on simplifying your life, not adding to it. I am a member of the XY Planning Network and the Military Financial Advisors Association.
