Our Team

The financial services industry has become too complex to allow for efficient planning and advice to be received from one advisor, let alone one firm. Benson Financial Group is a team of advisors and consultants that has the ability to collaborate and integrate their areas of experience to the benefit of our clients. We collectively possess series 6, 7, 63, 65, and 66 securities licenses and each of us holds various insurance licenses for many states, including the three that make up the local tri-state area.

*Dave Ramsey’s Endorsed Local Providers (ELPs) apply for membership and are selected based on a set of criteria such as experience and customer service. Once selected, ELPs pay a fee to cover website maintenance and employment costs. Inclusion as an ELP does not qualify a financial professional to provide investment recommendations or advice.
