Team

Westshore Financial Group is a General Agency of The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America, New York, N.Y., which has had an active presence in the Central Florida area since the mid 1940's.

In the 1990's, the General Agency was rebranded to "Westshore Financial Group" to emphasize our commitment to the Tampa Bay area, and our offices today have over 100 professionals dedicated to serving our mission.

The unique structure of Westshore Financial Group allows us to be large and resourceful but personal and specific at the same time.  We operate in Tampa as a local boutique firm with a focus on personal service for our clients, but we operate with the full backing of Guardian Life Insurance Company - a 150 year old national mutual insurance company built on a history of delivering on promises made to its clients.

Our experienced professionals below have helped many people just like you find answers to complex financial questions.  We would love the opportunity to sit with you, listen to your specific situation and help develop solutions specific to you.
