Tracy L. Sherwood, CFP®, Founder / Financial Advisor is celebrating 25 years in the wealth management industry!
Prior to founding Sherwood Financial Management, I spent my career at a local fee-only wealth management firm in Williamsville NY (Ogorek Wealth Management) for 24+ years working with clients as they near retirement. I cultivated long-term relationships advising individuals, spouses, partners and extended families on personal financial planning, wealth accumulation strategies, retirement planning and most notable retirement coaching.
By continuously educating, providing perspective, and maintaining investment discipline, I helped clients navigate the financial markets in varying market conditions over the years; including both the booming dot com era of the 90’s, and the Great Recession precipitated by the financial crisis in 2007-2008.
Throughout the years, I realized that the most rewarding aspect of my career as a trusted financial advisor is giving each of my clients the time, care and consideration that they deserve. I view this as one of my strengths as an adviser, and part of the motivation behind starting my own firm.
I want to ensure that clients are living their best life, setting attainable goals and pursuing experiences that they are excited about and enjoy. In the spirit of living my best life, I am focusing on more satisfying business goals, including delivering a superior customer experience, and making a positive impact on my community.
I am thankful for the knowledge, experience and confidence that I gained over the years, and the opportunity to offer you my advisory approach and services at my firm.
