Meet Your Future Team

When you become a client of The Retirement Planning Group, based on your situation, we’ll assemble a dedicated group of in-house professionals made up of a Wealth Manager, Tax Professional, Investment Team Member, and Client Relationship Manager.

Over 1,300* families trust us

We’ll start by pairing you with a Wealth Manager.

Your Wealth Manager will kick off the planning process. They will review your financial situation and strive to understand the number one concern that caused you to reach out to us. They will create and present a plan in real-time to solve that problem. That plan will demonstrate how we could potentially help you, provide recommendations for managing investments, tax strategies and uncover hidden fees.
