SARASOTA, FL – Forza Wealth Management, an SEC Registered Investment Advisor based in Sarasota, is celebrating its fifth anniversary this month. Founder Michael DeMassa, CFA, CFP® left a corporate banking job in order to create the firm from the ground up, with a sole focus on providing investment advice to clients.
In Forza’s first year, Timothy Videnka, CFA, CFP® joined as chief investment officer and principal, to help make the vision become a reality. The firm expanded again earlier this year with the addition of Kevin McKenney, CFP®, and continues to experience growth through professional and client referrals. In September, the firm surpassed the assets under management necessary to transition its registration from the State of Florida to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
“Today, we are grateful for the families we serve as fiduciary investment advisors, managing over $100 million in assets,” said DeMassa.
Forza’s boutique structure allows for custom investment planning tailored for each client. As Forza is an investment-focused firm, the team works together with local CPAs, bankers, insurance agents and attorneys to provide comprehensive wealth planning.
Forza was built utilizing best-in-class technology and is committed to incorporating new technologies to enhance the client experience. “Delivering reconciled performance reports to all clients would normally take weeks,” said Videnka. “At Forza, our clients receive detailed investment reports within days of the quarter’s end. We take great pride in our expertise and service delivery.”
While Forza embraces technology for administrative tasks, clients value the direct access to their portfolio manager for updates and reviews.
To stay current on planning and investment strategies, Forza principals are active members in the local professional associations, including Southwest Florida Estate Planning Council, CFA Tampa Bay Society, and Financial Planning Association of the Suncoast.
“We look forward to many more years of service and helping more families to reach their financial goals,” said DeMassa.
