Lucas Bucl, CFP®

A Shareholder and Chief Investment Officer at Aspyre Wealth Partners, Lucas Bucl’s primary role at Aspyre Wealth Partners is to deliver comprehensive wealth management and investment management services. This means helping his clients balance living well today, while planning for their future. As lead of Aspyre’s investment management team and investment committee, Lucas is responsible for the firm’s investment research and execution of the investment management process.

Naturally curious, Lucas seeks to understand the “why” behind clients’ goals and motivations. This deeper understanding helps him provide the most effective advice that is specific to each client. Others describe Lucas as focused, driven, and wise — all of which comes in handy when delving into unique and complex financial strategies.

Lucas has worked in the financial planning industry for over 20 years and has been a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® practitioner since 2005. He started his career in Minnesota, previously working as a wealth manager for Accredited Investors Wealth Management, in Edina, MN.
