Carl Howe

Wealth Advisor

Carl has been assisting clients with their retirement planning goals since 1999 when he earned his insurance license, and then expanded his services in 2008 when he became an Investment Adviser Representative. For most of his financial career, Carl has focused on the core retirement elements of legacy, financial and health care planning.

In addition, Carl has created financial planning manuals for four Estate Planning organizations with over 300 financial representatives. Those representatives have utilized his unique Legacy, Financial and Health Care Planning strategies to help create the retirement plans for their clients. Today, VAL Trust is continuing to refine and build upon this work by offering every client their improved Five-Step V-A-L-U-E Process for comprehensive retirement planning.
