Find Out Who We Are
The Retirement Planning Group was formed by a group of advisors that spent their early years working in the stock brokerage industry. After working as financial advisors for four major stock brokerage firms and witnessing the behind the scene workings of several of the major wirehouses, they concluded that ultimately their clients would be better served in an independent environment. From there The Retirement Planning Group was formed, an independent advisory firm dedicated to providing unbiased, client-centered advice.
Introduction by The Retirement Planning Group President, Ryan Costello
Find Out How it Works Tristique a habitasse, sed nascetur porta sagittis
A guiding principal of The Retirement Planning Group is limiting the number of clients each advisor works with thereby ensuring each client receives the maximum amount of time and attention needed to help them fulfill their goals. Unfortunately, many advisors in the financial services industry are required to manage several hundred relationships. As those advisors are forced to take on additional clients their time becomes diluted and their clients pay the ultimate cost—lack of attention and care.
