RETIREMENT DESIGNED

Differently.

TAKING THE FIRST STEP TO A

Solid Foundation

Play Video
At Fundamental Wealth Designs, we believe a successful retirement begins with doing the fundamentals well.
“Fundamental” has its roots in the Latin word fundamentum, which means “foundation.” So if something is fundamental, it is a key point or underlying issue — the foundation, if you will — that the thing is built upon.

With a solid foundation, you can rest easy knowing that you’re prepared to face any surprises that life may throw your way throughout retirement.

OUR PURPOSE AND EXPERIENCE HELP YOU

Stand on Solid Ground

For over a decade, Billy Voyles worked in an executive role in the financial industry. With an educational background in finances and marketing, he is well-equipped to help you start your journey to retirement. Billy learned grit and ambition from an early age, beginning a paper route at 12 and continuing odd jobs until college. It was there, while working in the restaurant industry that a friend introduced him to finances. At the peak of his career, Billy traveled 30-40 weeks per year to speak, coach, and advise advisors on how to run/grow their businesses. It was a serendipitous meeting with a stranger looking for a financial advisor that would change the course of Billy’s career. Billy answered the man’s questions and realized that he could use his accumulated knowledge to help people like him.

With an aptitude for financial philosophies, and an entrepreneurial spirit, Billy embarked on a new journey of launching his practice, Fundamental Wealth Designs. Billy witnessed the value of planning for a secure retirement in his parents’ lives as his father’s health deteriorated in his latter years. Although their retirement plans have altered, their foundation has not, and it has been critical to maintaining peace of mind in the face of life’s ups and downs. His parents aren’t going to have their dream retirement, but they can still make the most of it because they built the groundwork.

Billy’s life experiences have taught him to view retirement differently. As a result, Billy is dedicated to offering honest, reliable guidance to our clients in order to empower them to build a sturdy foundation for retirement. At Fundamental Wealth Designs, we believe that a successful retirement means being prepared for anything life throws at you.

We do retirement differently because we understand that retirement is not a destination but a journey. Our goal is to provide our clients with holistic financial guidance and strategies tailored to their unique needs and circumstances, helping them achieve financial peace of mind throughout that journey.

Having advised advisors for years on how best to lead their clients, Billy has a wealth of knowledge about the financial industry and is dedicated to collaborating with his clients to help them implement their vision of retirement and make it a reality.

You’ve worked hard for your money;
