Our advisors

Great financial planning requires great financial advisors.

Our advisors are highly vetted professionals 
who are passionate about helping their clients, care deeply about their communities, and 
are interested in continually advancing their 
own education.

We support our advisors by hosting regular educational seminars at our flagship training facility to education on best practices, global trends, and how to best help their clients.

Our partnership

Invest smarter.

Each of our advisors is supported by our sister company, FormulaFolios—a multi-billion-dollar investment firm that utilizes a rules-based approach based on academic research to remove emotion from investing and help make smarter decisions. Visit formulafolios.com to learn more.

We believe that managing risk is the only way investors can develop a long-term investment strategy for dependable growth and future income. This is why we offer all of our clients with WealthGuard, a portfolio monitoring tool that acts as an early warning system for your investments.

Our leadership.

Jason Wenk
Founder
 

Jason grew up in a town of 500 people but went on to become one of Morgan Stanley’s youngest employees when the firm recruited him in 2000. As he learned more about the industry, he noticed that many investment strategies employed by institutional investors were often |out of reach of individuals. He launched Retirement Wealth in 2005 so that he could help individuals invest more like institutions. In addition to his passion for helping people, Jason has a lifelong interest in computers.

Sparked when his family purchased their first PC in 1993, this pursuit, along with his experience as a financial services entrepreneur, inspired Jason to experiment with algorithm-based investment strategies, leading to the formation of FormulaFolios in 2011.

Jason Crump
Chief Executive Officer
 

As our CEO, Jason Crump communicates regularly with our Advisors and works closely with our vendors to develop new offerings like mutual funds, ETFs, and 401(k) platforms. Jason assists in developing strategies to enhance our advisors’ businesses which in turn better serves their clients. Jason is a graduate of Calvin College in Michigan. Before joining Retirement Wealth, he worked at Fifth Third Bank helping clients develop and implement investment strategies.

As a practicing financial advisor with nearly 20 years of experience, Jason offers invaluable insight to our advisors on how to better serve clients.
