Corporate History / Background Back in 1997, four financial advisors sharing office space discovered they also shared a critical belief: the financial services industry needed a better way to provide advice to clients. They were passionate about that truth. They had complementary skills in financial advice, technical expertise, relationship management and operations that enabled them to translate their passion into action. From those shared beliefs, Wealth Enhancement Group was born. This new approach to financial services put clients first. It made clients long-term partners in planning their own futures based on their values and goals, so that they understood why they owned the investments they did. It ensured our firm's advice would always be in their best interest. Like all good ideas, Wealth Enhancement Group has branched, adapted, and grown as new people work on it. But more than 20 years later, the basics remain. We believe independence from Wall Street, and a client-centered approach to financial services, are good for clients. We believe a team-of-specialists methodology delivers better results than a single financial advisor can offer. And we believe the long-term partnership we create with clients gives them confidence about their financial future.
