How We Work

How We Work

At WNYFG, our business is less about investment management and more about working with our clients, who are like family to us, to help them through all phases of life.

Michael Aquino and Mark Narby each have more than 25 years of experience working with families to achieve their financial goals and dreams.

Our ideal client is over 50 years of age with a 401(k) Plan or other retirement account, such as a 403(b), or an IRA. If you are still working and have a retirement account at your employer, we can work with you and help you manage your retirement account.

We also work with clients who have non-retirement accounts. We use unique strategies, such as Tactical Asset Management and Personal Indexing, to maximize investment returns and minimize income taxes.

Finally, we work with Employers to provide cost efficient retirement plans and education for their Employee Participants.

Our team approach adds perspective to all we do and provides increased benefits to our clients.
