Martin D. Parlato is President of Martin D. Parlato and Associates, Inc., dba Lighthouse Retirement and is the author and host of the Lighthouse Retirement Hour which has been on the air continuously for more than 10 years.
The show is a provocative, often humorous, often snarky and most often “extremely insightful” look at what makes the stock market work in real life. The show is always, contemporaneously written and produced so that client’s and prospective clients have the benefit of knowing what happened in the market this week and how to prepare for success, how to prepare for the opportunity to try and “make ‘mo money” in the stock market. The show focuses on explaining how basic economics, fiscal policy, trade policy, earnings and fundamentals affect the stocks you own and may want to own.
The firm primarily represents clients 50 and older and primarily represents mid to high net worth clients.
At Lighthouse Retirement, it is our core belief that politics affects your money and therefore we spend each week talking about politics as it affects your investment accounts and your retirement accounts.

You won’t hear this truth, anywhere else.
Unlike most other advisory firms, all assets are managed and directed in house, are never “farmed out” to other asset managers and are invested principally, in individual stocks, bonds and other securities. The firm rarely uses Mutual Funds and never uses any expensive, high commission or liquidity crushing annuities.
The firm offers complimentary, one on one meetings with clients at the office located most conveniently to them.
Access to your accounts is provided via the “Amazing Gemini Private Client Portal and Vault” and assets are custodied at one of several, SIPC insured custodians.
