Victoria Larson CEO and Investment Adviser Representative

Victoria is committed to teaming up with you to build a financial plan for a lifestyle without compromise.

Before launching Vitality Investments, Victoria was an insurance executive and agency owner with Allstate Insurance for 15 years. She developed and nurtured relationships with her client base that set a standard of excellence, quality service, trust and integrity. In early 2016, after growing her agency from nothing to more than $7.5 million in annual premiums, Victoria decided to sell her ownership stake to investors and start her own firm.

Victoria practices focuses on designing comprehensive retirement plans utilizing a variety of different investment portfolios as well as insurance solutions such as proper life insurance planning and long-term care programs to help address three common risks in retirement: market volatility, taxes and long-term care.

Victoria uses her extensive experience and knowledge of insurance and business management to inform, help protect and legacy her clients and help them to ensure their personal financial and legacy needs are pursued.

Victoria has passed the Series 6, 63 and 65 securities exams and holds life and health insurance licenses. She is a graduate of DePaul University with a bachelor’s degree in marketing.

In her free time, Victoria likes to spend time with her children and two grandchildren. She loves cooking, traveling and cycling.
