Matthew G Follen, CLTC®

Financial Representative

Our team has the pleasure to serve many families and businesses in the Fox Valley and throughout the midwest. Our team consists of: Sydney Reed, Andrew Rose, Kelly Turney, and Amanda Follen. Each of our team members bring their own unique talents and abilities to be able to serve our clients in the absolute best way possible. 

My philosophy around planning is simple; plan with clients to minimize unnecessary risks and improve overall balance sheets in the most tax and cost effective manner possible. 

Over the last several years we have found that the world of finance is complicated, lacks continuity, and is full of conflicts of interest. We're here to work with our clients to sort it out, plan it out, and point it out. We truly believe that this transparent process of planning has allowed us to better serve our clients, and build long lasting relationships in our community. 

I have found that some people look back on their lives with regret; not for the things they have done, but for the things left undone. They find they are more successful than they anticipated but saved less than they intended. That is where my team comes in. We take the time to get to know you and your goals and objectives. We can help you anticipate and prepare for the best—and worst scenarios. The relationship we establish with you enables us to focus on your needs – today and throughout your lifetime.

I firmly believe in holistic planning and values-based solutions. Our team will work tirelessly on creating an appropriate personal plan and review to make sure the plan is reaching its financial destination.
