Vincent Tizono, RICP®

Vice President and Financial Advisor

As a financial advisor at Retire Once Financial Management, Vincent enjoys making often-complex financial topics easier to understand and getting into the “nitty-gritty” so his clients don’t have to. His goal is to illuminate and inform his clients so they leave his office feeling more confident about their financial future.

Vincent’s desire to pursue a career in financial services stemmed from his love of markets and economics as well as his frustration with the service his mother received when she sought financial advice at a variety of firms. Before coming to Retire Once Financial Management, Vincent worked for Edward Jones and had his own business in which he did contract work for financial professionals.

Vincent has passed the Series 65 securities exam and holds life, accident and health insurance licenses, and graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Science from Rocky Mountain College. While working at Edward Jones, he graduated from the Edward Jones Financial Advisor Career Development Program. Additionally, Vincent holds the RICP®, Retirement Income Certified Professional®, designation from the American College. The RICP is for advisors seeking to help near-retirees and retirees, and it is designed to give designation holders the skills to build comprehensive retirement income plans.

Vincent lives in O’Fallon, Missouri, and enjoys reading, spending time with friends and exploring new restaurants.
