Busey Wealth Management

The best way to reduce investment risk is to diversify your portfolio and create an asset allocation that's right for you. You can work with a participant adviser from Busey Wealth Management to learn about the different funds available or even structure a portfolio based on your current age (target-date fund) or risk tolerance. Busey also assists in rolling over any previous retirement funds into Carle Health's should you choose to do so.

Call Busey Wealth Management at (217) 365-4874 or email to set up an in-person or virtual appointment with a credentialed retirement adviser. Team members also can check the schedule on CLICK to sign up for on-site appointments.
