Ian has been working as a wealth manager and retirement planner. With the rapidly rising cost of college, he recognized that the old approaches to college planning were not keeping up.
Simply getting good grades and saving in a 529 or similar account was simply not meeting expectations. More importantly, these outdated college planning strategies were putting household finances and retirement plans at risk. He felt that in order to provide his clients with proper fiduciary retirement planning, he had to accurately show them the impact of college costs as well as provide them solutions to make both these financial milestones work.
This is the key driver for starting Reviresco College Planning. Showing families and students a smarter way to plan and pay for college, without jeopardizing household finances, retirement plans, or even future students.
