SELECT AN EXPERIENCED FINANCIAL ADVISOR
Michael R. Bacci, CFP® has been managing client investments for over 20 years. His experience has allowed him to help navigate client interests through two of the best and worst market cycles of the past 75 years (The turn of the century “Technology Boom to Bust”, and the Housing Boom which led to the Great Recession).
Michael believes in a long term approach to investing, but there are times which may warrant tactical adjustments to a portfolio. He works closely with his clients through routine account reviews and makes strategic portfolio changes when economic and market data warrant.
In today’s investing world of stock market boom, to bubble, to bust....a seasoned investment manager can help you navigate highly uncertain times, take advantage of investing opportunities, and look out for your interests first.

5) We do not recommend high fee / high commission variable annuity or illiquid real estate investments (non-traded REITS):
At BACCI INVESTMENTS GROUP, INC. we believe that high fee, high commission variable annuity or non-traded (illquid) Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITS) may not be in the best interest of a client. Many variable annuity products make guarantees which may be misleading and may not come to fruition. Non-traded Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITS) may not fully return invested funds at the end of their term, and funds invested may not be accessible for many years. Both products typically charge high commissions.
