About Truss Financial

Regardless of your life stage, income or goals, we can work with you to help create a financial plan to help you manage your short-term goals, long-term aspirations, assisting you in working toward meeting your financial targets. From investment advice and management, cash flow analysis, debt spend down, as well as risk management through life insurance, disability insurance, and long term care insurance needs, we pride ourselves in our comprehensive approach and being along side our clients in all aspects of their financial needs.


As financial advisors, our team offers access to investments, insurance and comprehensive financial planning. Investing should be a goals based decision, not necessarily returns based, and through financial planning, we help determine appropriate investment positions for your needs and risk tolerance, while considering covering for the risks along the way. Whether you have basic needs or a more complex financial picture, we can help.
