Investment Advice and Asset Management

 I believe that working together we can do more than working alone.  Together we can protect investments from economic turbulence, and build future income: Wayne Fourman  is a financial advisor with the May Financial Group, Inc. serving Greenville and Dayton, Ohio area since 1983. 

Contact me:

► If you’re a participant in a 401(k) plan and need help.

► If you believe the “set it and forget it” approach may not be the path to growing and protecting your investments. 

► If you are looking for individualized 401(k) guidance.

 ► If you are looking for education on how to allocate your investments.

 ►If you are frustrated with the default mutual fund options.

 ► If you have given up paying attention to your company 401(k) retirement plan account.

I provide guidance with the goal to profit in up markets and protect in down markets.  My core belief: 1. We don’t know where the market will go and neither does anyone else 2. Wherever the market goes, it will get there by trending 3. Along the way, there will be out performers and under performers.  Armed with these three core beliefs and by identifying market trends, we can determine our market exposure, and add out performers to your portfolio.
