Sam Tucker is a financial advisor who joined the Virtus team in January of 2019. In 2016, after graduating from Baylor University in Waco, Texas with a degree in Political Science and Business Administration, Sam returned to his home town of Orlando to begin a career in the financial services industry. He garnered significant experience supporting advisors while diligently studying for and passing a body of exams: the Florida Insurance License, the Series 7 and the Series 66.
“Our culture is one where consumerism is glorified and frugality is vilified, but ironically, the typical retirement age American cannot afford to support their current standard of living in retirement, or may not ever be able to retire at all. A superior level of financial achievement requires a superior level of planning. By offering a comprehensive suite of services including debt elimination, risk management and investment strategies, that is what we strive to achieve.”
During his time attending Baylor on an academic scholarship, Sam’s jobs and internships earned him experience across a diverse range of fields from skilled blue-collar careers, to communications and broadcast news, to real estate, to politics, to medicine. His familiarity with these industries gives him a unique perspective and appreciation for many lines of work further allowing him to tailor each plan to a given client’s personal goals and needs.
When not at work, Sam enjoys spending time with his wife and pursuing hobbies in motorsport and technology.
