Planning for Retirement or another financial goal can sometimes seem very difficult. There is simply an unceasing torrent of information available via the internet and business cable-news channels, let alone commercials, infomercials, radio and web ads -- much of it conflicting! How do you even begin to decipher all of this?
It doesn't have to be difficult. Al and Zack Zettergren are a father son independent financial advisory team. Zack Zettergren is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Practitioner located in the Nashville, TN Metro-Area.

We love what I do, and have done it for nearly 50 years combined.
Do you have questions about how IRAs, Annuities, 401ks, or Pensions work? Is a SEP IRA or SIMPLE IRA right for you or your company? How about Mutual Funds, Life Insurance, or Fee-based Advisory Accounts? What are the differences between a CD, an Annuity, and a Bond? Is inflation different for people who are working versus folks who are already retired? We can help you understand the answers to questions like these in plain English, which is often the first step in helping you develop a plan of action to address your financial concerns.
