Onward to the Next Chapter for Our Alaskan Friends

We want to congratulate Sam Skaggs and Amy Volz on their retirement this month! They will surely keep busy through an encore of their nonprofit work, gardening, fishing, biking, or sailing the Alaskan seas.


Sam and Amy founded Verdant, LLC in Juneau, Alaska and worked with clients primarily throughout southeast Alaska. Verdant’s clients, along with Sam and Amy, joined First Pacific in 2020. We endured the unprecedented year together collaborating on what COVID-19 meant for financial plans and the investment markets. Working closely together over the last year ensured a smooth transition for their longtime clients.


Sam is retiring after over 30 years of experience as a Registered Investment Advisor and financial planner. Amy joined Sam in 2004 and they worked together as registered investment advisors for the last 17 years. As pioneers in socially and environmentally conscious investment management and financial advice, they formed the Resilient Portfolio strategy, which First Pacific will continue to employ and develop. We are excited to carry on Sam‘s and Amy’s legacy, while also continuing to adapt to the everchanging economic landscape and the sustainability needs of our planet. We will maintain their former office in downtown Juneau at 119 Seward Street, Suite 8.


Congratulations to Sam and Amy! We look forward to visiting in Sitka!
