CO-FOUNDER & CHIEF RETIREMENT SPECIALIST
Mario Beatrice, CRPC®, CMP™
Mario is a Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor (CRPC®), Certified Medicaid Planner™ (CMP™) and Investment Advisor Representative (IAR) with Horter Investment Management who focuses primarily on retirement planning. His professional registrations include a Series 65 and Life and Health Insurance Licenses. Mario is a Fiduciary Financial Advisor, meaning he must always put his clients’ interests first.
As a fiduciary, Mario’s fundamental principle, one that is eye opening to many folks, is that you can take less risk and still do well in retirement. There’s no one best place to put your retirement money, because each individual and couple has unique requirements and different tolerances for risk. Mario’s approach to retirement planning is one from a goals-based perspective.
After earning his bachelor of science, concentrating in finance and management, from Babson College in Wellesley, Massachusetts in 2002, Mario began his career in Orlando, FL. He worked for AFD Home, Inc., as an executive in general management, a family ran import and export business. In 2009, Mario earned his Florida Insurance, Health and Variable Annuity License and began educating individuals, families and businesses of safe money strategies. Soon after, he earned his professional registration as a Series 65 fiduciary advisor and co-founded Wisepath Financial, LLC with his brother Rocco.
Mario’s extensive experience in business management, finance, tax planning, estate planning and wealth management allow him to offer a unique experience to the conservative, pre-retiree and retirement communities of Central Florida.
