Founded in 2001 in The Villages, Florida, a retirement community recently called the “nation’s fastest growing metro area” by the Orlando Sentinel, Parady Financial Group is a financial services firm that has helped thousands of retirees, and people nearing retirement age, achieve peace of mind by designing personalized retirement planning strategies for conservative investors.

Our philosophy is based on our goal to empower you to live “your life, your way” via an education-rich culture. We are dedicated to maximizing the living benefits of life insurance and annuities to establish guaranteed income for life and create a tax efficient retirement – all while protecting your principle from the fluctuations of the stock market*. We are not securities licensed or registered investment advisors. We choose to work with retirees who prefer the safety and security of working with instruments which provide steady, predictable results in unpredictable, uncertain times. Specifically, we maximize the living benefits of annuities and life insurance contracts – instruments that are often misunderstood and underutilized in retirement strategies.

Proper strategies with life insurance and annuities can provide attractive living-tax benefits, cash accumulation benefits, and income distribution benefits that can be protected from the fluctuations of the stock market. The success and growth of our firm is built on a foundation of the steady, predictable results of our retirement strategies. We have worked with thousands of clients, and each one is assured that when they work with us, they can focus on their lifestyle and never outlive their money.

At Parady, we have created a one of a kind, nurturing family environment that enables us to provide unparalleled individualized service for each of our treasured clients. We take the time to listen to your concerns and work as a team to guide you in a direction that is best suited to meet your evolving needs and desires. Our unique business model is designed to protect the integrity of each and every client relationship. Our commitment to the satisfaction of every client we serve has driven unprecedented growth potential based almost entirely on client endorsements and client referrals. Since we only work with people we know, we are able to cultivate and protect the integrity of our family environment.

For people who are new to our firm and without a sponsor, we have created a multi-faceted, revolutionary Learning Lounge program that allows us to get to know each other prior to discussing specific retirement needs. Fashioned as a comfortable lecture room that holds events every two weeks (three nights a week), the Lounge is where we explain what Parady does and what we specifically can do for you while covering a variety of retirement topics from annuity strategies to understanding IRAs and navigating the complexities of the tax code. Our open house events mix business with pleasure, and are a great opportunity for you to meet other clients, ask them how they feel about us, and find out how the strategies we’ve developed for them have positively impacted their lifestyle.

*Annuity guarantees are backed by the financial strength and claims paying ability of the issuing carrier. They are not FDIC insured. Annuities may be subject to surrender charges and/or holding periods. Before making a purchase decision, have a complete discussion with your insurance professional.

The Retirement Journey

“A few years ago, I changed the logo and branding of Parady Financial Group based on a powerful experience I had hiking with my brother Luke, a world class rock climber, to the 14,000 foot summit of Longs Peak in Colorado.

I learned that it took very different physical and cerebral training to get down the mountain than it took to go up – an incredible metaphor for the retirement journey. Luke knew we had to leave the summit quickly to avoid gathering clouds and dangerous storms, but others who stayed too long got caught in them.

When it comes to your financial journey, success isn’t just measured simply by reaching the summit, but understanding the risks and conditioning involved in making your way down. The same strategies that took you to the top are not the same ones that will protect you from potential danger and keep you safe and secure as you descend.

Just as I had my brother, you need a company that has experience helping people that have already reached the top of the mountain. You have spent 30+ years working to climb the mountain. Now it’s time to enjoy the rest of your life.

We’re here to help you do that safely.”
