Peter Korcusko, a Vice President and Financial Advisor with Morgan Keegan & Company, Inc., focuses primarily on wealth management consulting for affluent investors. His office is located at 715 South Ft. Harrison Avenue, Clearwater.
As a financial advisor with over twelve years of experience, he is well-equipped to take an objective, unbiased approach to tailoring each wealth management plan to enhance, protect, and ultimately transfer family wealth.
And, with the support from the Morgan Keegan team of specialists from a variety of financial disciplines, he offers a broad range of financial services, including investment management consulting, estate planning, private banking through Regions Bank, and strategies for concentrated equity positions and real estate holdings.
Simply put, tax-advantaged investments are investments that may be exempt from federal and state tax. That being the case, you may think that tax-advantaged investments, such as municipal bonds, would be a perfect investment vehicle for any investor. However, that is not necessarily true.
Although tax-advantaged investments may be an appropriate part of any comprehensive investment plan, they are most beneficial for investors in the higher federal tax brackets looking for a way to increase current income without increasing tax liability. While tax-advantaged investments offer specific advantages, they also carry certain risks. The decision of whether or not tax-advantaged investments are right for a particular investor should be discussed with a qualified financial advisor.
Korcusko is originally from New Jersey and moved to the Clearwater area five years ago. Prior to moving to this area, he worked as a financial advisor in central New Jersey and New York City for seven years. He, and his wife, Tracey, have adopted two Guatemalan girls; 3˝-year-old Isabella and 14-month-old Maya.
Korcusko does not try to be all things to all people. Instead, he concentrates on meeting the unique complex financial needs and goals of a select number of wealthy individuals and families. By focusing on the investor rather than the market, he can position his clients' investments to best meet their individual objectives while taking into account the market fluctuations that will inevitably occur along the way.
