“Patrick Traverse is a financial planner and investment manager. He founded MoneyCoach to be the firm he wished he hired as an investor when he played professional hockey. Patrick was awarded one of the Top 100 Most Influential Advisor by Investopedia.”


Job Title:



Patrick Traverse, founder of MoneyCoach, decided to get into financial services after an 18-year professional hockey career. His journey to his new career started as a young investor during his early twenties as he became frustrated with the type of help he was getting from his advisors. He felt compelled to learn on his own about everything he needed to know to make proper financial decisions. His new passion for the intricacies of the markets and personal finance pushed him to choose financial planning as a second career.

Patrick and his team know that clients are busy with their life and sometimes feel they don’t have the time to get to learn everything they need to know. Patrick thinks it is important that he advises his clients on every facet of their financial life. He feels that every piece plays hand in hand with each other and if an area of their finances is neglected, it could mean that their whole life plan could come down crashing.

After more than 4 years in the business, Patrick founded MoneyCoach in 2016. He uses his experience as a top-level athlete to help his clients become financially successful. He feels that the most important missing component that most investors do not have is accountability. By being their financial coach, Patrick guides his clients to control their money. Not that money is everything, but so much of our lives depends on how we manage money!

How do I transfer my variable annuity to a mutual fund without a big tax penalty?

It depends. What you want to avoid is a tax cost. Is this a Non-Qualified Annuity? If so, find out what your first investment was and what your account grew to. Those gains would be taxed as ordinary income plus a 10% penalty if you are under the age of 59.5. If your gains are substantial, you might want to research annuity companies. Some of them have products that are stripped down to any unecessary expensive benefits you might need which reduce the cost substantially. 

If your annuity is within an IRA, then there are no cost to transferring to another custodian and buying mutual funds.

I hope this helps.
