Seamlessly Coordinating Your Business, Retirement & Estate Assets

Applied Financial Group is a comprehensive insurance and financial services firm that specializes in maximizing and protecting wealth for businesses and individuals. Quite simply, we take our role as your financial advocate very seriously. We put as much effort into growing your knowledge as we do into growing your wealth because what you think, feel, and know about money matters.

The effort you put into your business, career, and personal life deserves the highest level of attention and skill. At Applied Financial Group, we seek to provide the specialized services and experience needed when it comes to planning for you, your business, and your family’s retirement and estate. We work with your team of other professionals to help ensure both your business and personal financial strategies are developed and solidified with our time-tested knowledge and abilities.

While each stage of life presents its own challenges, managing and protecting your wealth does not have to be one of them. Utilizing a unique, proprietary process we call The Life Cycle Wealth Management Process™, we guide you through life’s many milestones and coordinate your business life and personal life into a cohesive plan. Wealth accumulation and protection should be transformational, not transactional. Experience the difference with AFG.
