Barry Waxler

Published Author and President/CEO for Universal Financial Consultants, an independently owned financial planning company

Waxler's primary focus is on corporate planning for serious business owners, newly-retired or pre-retired executives and individuals –people who have a crucial need to protect their assets, grow their investments and create a legacy for their families. His simple investment strategy is focused on investment grade insurance options, with an emphasis on liquidity and investment returns.

As a financial strategist, Waxler comes to the table with experience in health, life, and financial contracts, as well as a thorough understanding of the financial markets and related tax implications for his clients. His alignment partners include accountants, tax specialists and attorneys.

Waxler understands that today's volatile and often unstable economic market creates uncertainty for clients. Individuals are often besieged by financial "sales-focused” agents who promote short-term investment strategies which can produce unnecessary tax burdens and threaten their assets and retirement. To this end, Waxler and his associates promote long-term, compassionate financial relationships with clients that focus on risk tolerance and suitable investments.
